"If you look at where we were past year", Rossi said, "the last four cars in qualifying, to having three cars in the top 10 (in the race), really having something to fight for today, it's a testament not only to this weekend and the strength the team has shown, but also this offseason and how much better 2017 has been for us, has been for Honda".

"I love beating Hinch in Canada", Newgarden said.

Rossi had his first podium finish of the year and best result since winning the 2016 Indianapolis 500.

James Hinchcliffe, an Ontario native from nearby Oakville, finished third to the delight of the large crowd at Exhibition Place.

Hinchcliffe was third at his home event, while Marco Andretti showed improved form in fourth, ahead of reigning champion Simon Pagenaud and Ryan Hunter-Reay. "When the track rubbered in and the blacks were on the auto really did come to life", Hinchcliffe said.

"I have no doubt that Roger (Penske) and Chip (Ganassi) are definitely looking at him", Daly said.

Newgarden actually got two lucky breaks. His other win came at Iowa Speedway, a short track. "We didn't necessarily roll off the truck that way but we've got ourselves in a position to be at the sharp end. I think the competition is so tight that it shifts from week to week", Dixon said.

"Thank you to the guys and thank you to Tim [Cindric] for making that call". No less than four drivers ended up hitting the wall in Turn 11 a year ago, so it seems the concerns weren't completely unfounded. Series' rookie Ed Jones has raced here in Indy Lights before, while the other series' rookie, Esteban Gutierrez, is coming off a strong oval track race (his first) at Iowa last week. Graham Rahal appeared to slow up to avoid Pagenaud, when cars began stacking up.

Defending Toronto champ Power didn't even complete a single lap after colliding with Scott Dixon near turn three and damaged the front of his vehicle.

Power's auto got the worst of it, breaking a right-front suspension piece.

He limped through the remainder of the lap before calling an end to his day and claiming last place. "Dixon is the most consistent but Will, Pagenaud and even (Helio) Castroneves are also very consistent, so it's hard to pick one". Once Tony Kanaan nosed into the Turn 1 wall, it brought out the yellow after a handful of the Andretti contingent had been into the pits for their first scheduled stops. Needing to be pulled out cost him two laps to the leaders.

In 2015, he was the test and reserve driver at Scuderia Ferrari and then drove previous year for the new Haas F1 team.

A final practice session takes place on Saturday morning before qualifying in the afternoon. The Mexican driver was initially diagnosed with concussion-like symptoms, but he was cleared after resting overnight.
