    Round one winner Helio Castroneves took pole position for the second round of the IndyCar championship at Barber Motorsport Park.

    He shares the front row with James Hinchcliffe. Behind the Chevrolet drivers row two is all-Honda, Scott Dixon ahead of Mike Conway.

    Will Power is ninth, Rubens Barrichello 14th and Dario Franchitti only 18th.

    The highest Lotus-powered qualifier is Sebastien Bourdais in 17th.

    It’s not exactly the same but it has a knockout element. Drivers are eliminated and the top six have a shoot-out for pole position.

    I was just wondering how two had no set time and qualified around 10th. So it’s like the force indias used to do at the end of 2011 I presume?

    Wow, one of the best F1 drivers is given the same car as anybody else, which is new to him as much as to anybody else, with the only new thing to him being the track, and all he can achieve is 14th place.

    That should open some eyes and make people rethink some bias. :)

    You said it very well Damon, the cars are completely new to all the drivers. They have nothing in common to the previous generation other than to use the same wheels.

    As I’ve said before, Rubens is quickly finding out that the IndyCar grid is full of world class drivers, many who could easily be in F1.

    I’d hate to see him end his career without the proper farewell he should have had in F1, then regularly being trounced in IndyCar stuck near the bottom of the grid.
