Max Chilton: “It was a pretty frustrating race”


Max Chilton was left frustrated after failing to get the result he felt he and his team deserved during Saturday’s Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indy.

The Gallagher-sponsored Chip Ganassi Racing driver ended the race down in fourteenth, and admitted that he was happy with the handling of his #8 car when in clear air, but found it harder to drive when in traffic.

Former Marussia Formula 1 driver Chilton is sure the results within the Verizon IndyCar Series will begin to come for him once the team and driver get a handle on the set-up on the car, having taken just one top ten finish so far in the first five races.

“It was a pretty frustrating race for the Gallagher team today,” revealed Chilton. “We got the car handling where we wanted it but when we got around other cars it just went off.

“We were around sixth or seventh and we ended up dropping to around P20. We did get to P14 but we need to get the car better when we need it at the start of the stint.

“I’m sure we’ll continue to work on that and I look forward to getting where we need to be.”
