Last season James Hinchcliffe started in the middle of the front row for the Indianapolis 500 and came home with a sixth-place finish in the No. 27 Andretti Autosport Chevrolet.

Next Sunday he’ll start on the outside of the third row, but he expects a much better finish.

Hinchcliffe is coming off a win at the Sao Paulo Indy — his second victory of the 2013 season — and the Andretti team is on top of its game, so he is hardly being unrealistic in his expectation of a top finish, even a win, at the 97th running of the greatest oval race in the world.
