Saturday 21st May, 2022 - 2:34am
The Fast Friday practice session at the Indianapolis 500 remains on hold due to a power issue in Race Control.
Just two drivers had completed laps when proceedings were brought to a halt, with broadcast advising that Race Control had lost power.
Helio Castroneves (Meyer Shank Racing Honda) had not long set a 228.229mph (367.299km/h), after Santino Ferrucci (Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Chevrolet) had achieved an average 223.242mph (359.273km/h) on an early run.
As at 12:32 local time, almost 20 minutes after the session was put under yellow flag conditions, there has not been a restart.
Drivers have been greeted by gusty conditions at the Brickyard today, creating a significant challenge in navigating the circuit.
