After three straight races filled with mostly good behavior, the gloves–and better judgment–came off on the streets of Sao Paulo on Sunday.

When the endless string of crashes and cautions came to an end after 75 laps, Andretti Autosport’s James Hinchcliffe played a masterful game of waiting to the final five laps to use all his Firestone Reds had to give and and an extra few uses of Push-to-Pass (P2P) to come away with his second win of the season and the third for the Andretti team in 2013.
