Probably Alonso ? When he was 6 seconds clear or so, or maybe Hunter-Reay?

Interesting that Alonso had the fastest average lap speed of the race. Perhaps too much for the Honda to take, both of them in clear air earlier on.

Word is this years Honda engines have been turned up to make up for their lacking aero. The boost in power seems to have been paid in reliability, the engines been blowing up all year.

Also Honda engine has more torque, Chevy more top end.

Still late 80s and  early 90s is my favo IndyCar era ;) Nowadays if you're spat out by F1, you can run competitively in IndyCar. But first you need to get your oval license :P
