O’Ward wants to battle Palou on the streets of California

Duck O’Ward, maximum rival of Álex Palou for the IndyCar title, does not give up and promises battle on the streets of California. There are 35 points that must be traced in Long beach and their aspirations go through win or be second and wait. For the Spanish to fail.

The Mexican left the Monterey GP in Laguna Seca disappointed, but he acknowledges that things could have ended worse for his interests: “Obviously we needed more to bridge the gap “, O’Ward said after finishing fifth last Sunday. “So we made it a bit more difficult for ourselves for Long Beach. I mean, we still have a chance. All I can do is fight. I think that’s the only thing we can do now”, Assures the McLaren driver for Racer.com

O’Ward also feels strong on the urban tracks, where he has achieved a victory and a podium, which came in the Detroit double: “I think our street pack is probably one of the strongest compared to road ones, ovals and short ovals. I think I am quite skilled on a street track, so I hope I can achieve something good and put up a fight ”.

Pato’s options pass through there, in battle, fighting, moving race that leaves Palou out of the game, who has never raced in Long Beach, although the challenge does not make Barcelona nervous: “We go to Long Beach, where we never I’ve been. Duck, Newgarden have run there. Dixon too. Everyone I’m fighting has been there. It will not be easy”.

One does not want to throw in the towel and the other does not want to see himself as a champion, it is the racing game. But in certain comments loaded with sincere, Palou is pointed with more favoritism. By car, performance and regularity. And this is how O’Ward explains it: “We are not where Ganassi is, specifically, because those guys have three cars in the top five in the championship. If you ask me, they would be the ones to lose the championship ”. Sincerity or more pressure for Ganassi and Palou.
