Alexander Rossi has tried to stop dwelling on his bad days, a necessary self-improvement chore when the last great day was two years ago.
Rossi races Sunday at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, site of his last victory in 2019. He went winless last year and this season has led just two laps. He is 14th in the standings.
“As the weeks go by, it’s getting easier to swallow the pain of it, I’m getting accustomed to it,” Rossi told The Associated Press. “The motivation is still there, and I would say it’s as high or higher than anyone on the grid. I’m just able to get over it much quicker than maybe before. Instead of feeling sorry for myself through Monday afternoon, I’m up and at the gym at 7 o’clock.”
Andretti Autosport is an enigma: Ryan Hunter-Reay and James Hinchcliffe are having terrible years and Rossi is again underperforming expectations. But Colton Herta has a victory, has contended in other races and at ninth in the standings is the highest-ranked driver on the four-car team.
