Linus opened the Indy Lights weekend at Detroit with P4 in the sole practice session on Friday.
Leading the charts for much of the session, Linus was eventually shuffled down to fourth in the closing stages as a trio of Andretti Autosport cars shot to the top.
Ending up some four tenths off the ultimate pace, Linus remained confident going into qualifying early on Saturday morning – having stayed off any new tyres or push-to-pass use in practice.
LINUS: “I think it’s a really good start for us here. The car felt solid and I got quickly up to speed. I never used any push-to-pass; we’re not allowed to in qualifying anyway, so I preferred to stick with relevance and just prepare for what matters. There’s definitely more in the bag and we’ve had a solid first day, so I’m really happy.”
The Indy Lights field is back on track for a very early 7:45 am / 13.45 qualifying dash around the streets of Detroit on Saturday morning. Qualifying will be split into two halves this weekend, with the first segment setting the grid for Race 1 and the second mini-session setting the grid for Race 2.
Linus has clinched three out of four pole positions on offer so far this season.
