The New Zealand IndyCar driver Scott Dixon has made a strong start to the new season with a second placing at the St Petersburg grand prix in Florida.

After qualifying sixth fastest, Dixon led for about 40 of the first 70 laps before making a final pit stop, and when he rejoined the race he was unable to catch Helio Castroneves who went on to win comfortably.
