Wickens rues pace car confusion on restart

Robert Wickens says that confusion over the pace car lights contributed to the poor final restart that exposed him to the ill-fated attack from Alexander Rossi in the closing stages of the IndyCar curtain-raiser at St Petersburg on Sunday. The Canadian rookie had controlled much of the race in his Schmidt Peterson Motorsport entry and comfortably held the pursuing Rossi at bay during another restart a few laps earlier. But for the last restart, the safety car lights did not turn off to indicate the imminent return to green. Rossi remained close enough to launch an attack as they entered Turn 1, resulting in contact that dumped Wickens from P1 to P18. Related Stories Related Stories IndyCar...
