Long Beach winner Alexander Rossi’s composure under pressure is a result of his increasing confidence in his ability and that of his team, says Andretti Autosport’s COO Rob Edwards.
The new championship leader, in his third IndyCar season, dominated last weekend’s Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, taking pole position by 0.35sec and leading 71 of the 85 laps.
The win marked Rossi’s third consecutive podium finish, second victory in five races, and sixth podium from the last nine events.
“It’s like we talked about after Phoenix,” said Edwards, “Alex has found his groove.
“And you see that with a lot of guys, right? Once they start to win, it starts coming together, they gain confidence, they try less hard because it’s there, that natural rhythm. And the results follow.”
