Graham Rahal (middle), Scott Dixon, and James Hinchcliffe hoist their trophies following Race 1 of the 2017 Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix. The win was the fifth of Rahal's IndyCar career and the fourth since 2015.

Hinchcliffe, was similarly dismissive of Hamilton's comments, noting: "It's amusing hearing criticism about the depth of our field from someone who has to race three other cars, when we have seven winners in the first seven races".

The Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix turned out to be a Honda rout as Dixon was second in Ganassi's Honda. Hinchcliffe finished third, completing a Honda sweep of the top three finishing positions. Overall Honda secured seven of the top 10 spots.

"To me, a race is a race - we drove the race if the engine blows up it blows up. But it's great for points". I probably couldn't get the most out of it but we were kind of there. Then we got that yellow at the right time right after our pit stop.
