Admit it. When you were watching the IndyCar finale at Fontana last weekend, there was a moment when you thought Will Power was on the verge of blowing it. That he was about to make a mistake that would earn him the rare and unhappy distinction of being a four-time championship runner-up.
That moment was just after the restart. Up to that point in the evening, Power had conducted himself with Franchitti-esque patience and restraint; refusing to panic in the wake of a disastrous qualifying position, and picking his battles as he worked his way back up through the pack.
It was a strategy that served him well: by the time of the caution, he had climbed from 21st to sixth.
