Canadian James Hinchcliffe of Andretti Autosport won today’s IndyCar race, the Sao Paulo Indy 30, after withstanding Takuma Sato’s ‘block party.’ Another of my favorite racers, Oriol Servia, raced from the back of the field toward the front twice and finished fourth. Briton Justin Wilson had a horrible time, but Marco Andretti finished third and celebrated on the podium with his Andretti Autosport teammate. has won half of the races this season — two of four. He said, before the podium celebration, “We’ve won all the races (that) we finished.”
