Starting from pole, Wickens led five times, totaling 69 laps in the 110-lap contest, and had the makings of a fairytale beginning in his hands. That story took an unpredictable turn when contact with Alexander Rossi during a confusing restart pitched the No. 6 SPM Honda into the wall on Lap 109. And with the Andretti Autosport driver holding on to finish third, the race's most dominant driver was not impressed with being relegated to 18th at the checkered flag.
