Stefan Wilson: “It was a little bit frustrating this afternoon”

1 Mins read

Stefan Wilson finished down in thirtieth position during the third day of practice ahead of the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, but felt his KV Racing Technology team went the wrong way with set-up during the day.

The Indy 500 rookie completed 85 laps of the 2.5-mile oval on Wednesday, with a best time of 40.3985s – 222.781mph – but despite the set-up issues, praised his team for giving him the opportunity to test out and evaluate the changes they made, even if they ultimately turned out to go in the wrong direction.

Wilson will revert back to a set-up he hopes will make the handling of his #25 machine better on track, and is looking for a less frustrating day at the oval.

“It was a little bit frustrating this afternoon, we made some changes that were on our test plan and you know we just didn’t find the results that we wanted from those changes,” said Wilson.

“We’re going to try to go back on some and make some different changes for tomorrow and hopefully get the handling back a little bit better.

“I’m really proud of all of my team, they put in a lot of work today to make those changes and we were able to evaluate them which moves the whole team forward finding out which things don’t quite work.”
