Silver: Jon Rahm

Bronze: Simon Pagenaud
(France, Auto Racing)
Simon Pagenaud overcame a bad qualifying effort that put him 23rd and last only to win an exciting IndyCar Iowa 250 Race 1 by defeating Scott Dixon. He did everything right and executed Team Penske’s strategy perfectly by pitting early and holding the gas consumption optimally. Then Pagenaud had another good race on the second round and went on to finish 4th in a race won by his teammate and defending series Champion, Josef Newgarden (USA). Few times a driver has won from last. The previous was Pagenaud’s compatriot Sébastien Bourdais, in 2017.
