“It was a really disappointing day in the end. The whole Gainbridge team did an amazing job all weekend. They put me in the best possible position to win, and unfortunately, I threw that away with five [laps] to go. We will keep moving and keep going forward. We have a good car for Indy GP, which is exciting for next week. This one is going to hurt for a little bit.”
