The two key areas where Dixon needs to re-assert his authority

OPINION: Having been Chip Ganassi Racing's IndyCar focal point for the best part of a decade, Scott Dixon has been so far outgunned by new team-mate Alex Palou in 2021. After finishing behind the Spaniard at his traditional happy hunting ground at Mid-Ohio, Dixon has work to do to assume his traditional position in the team and the standings

It’s probably fair to say that Scott Dixon is just a little bit good when it comes to tackling the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Throughout his wildly successful IndyCar career, the New Zealander has won at the undulating Lexington circuit a record six times, most recently in 2019 when he fended off then-Chip Ganassi Racing team-mate Felix Rosenqvist by a car-length to secure victory. This added an extra notch to his quintet of victories scored between 2007 and 2014 and, although it’s not been quite as plain sailing in recent years, it’s still a circuit inextricably linked to Dixon's swaggering performances of past rounds.
