Bad breaks hobble Hinchcliffe, Pigot at St. Pete

Sometimes the box score really doesn't do justice to a race driver and Sunday in St. Peterburg was a good example. James Hinchcliffe started third, made a nifty outside pass of polesitter Will Power for the lead but then got a terrible break with a caution flag and had to settle for ninth place. Spencer Pigot charged from 13th to fifth before a brake rotor exploded and he finished next-to-last in 20th place. After searching for some outside grip going into Turn 1 during morning warm-up, HInch put it to use on lap six and swept past Power going into Turn 1.
