Bourdais happy to bounce back

Sebastien Bourdais believes the way things transpired in the Montreal yesterday couldn't have been better for his championship chances.

Bourdais moved into a 60-point lead after he won the rain-postponed race, while both his main title rivals hit problems.

AJ Allmendinger retired with mechanical problems and Justin Wilson crashed out, meaning the Frenchman can now clinch the title at Elkhart Lake next month, should results go his way.

"It's about as good as it gets," Bourdais said. "After Denver, it was very important for us to bounce back, and now it's done.

"I can't say I'm really pleased at the way things went with AJ because obviously I would have liked better to win it fair and square.

"You know, that's what racing is all about. We've had our share of bad days. You know, today, it was a good day.

"On the other hand, Justin made a mistake. That, I guess, is part of racing, too."
