Pagenaud, Chaves end Barber race with cursing match

Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud and Harding Racing’s Gabby Chaves completed the Honda Indy Grand Prix at Alabama ensconced in a curse-laden argument on pit lane in front of a few journalists.

The argument, stemming from Pagenaud’s assertion that Chaves made it excessively difficult to pass while the Harding driver was down at least one lap, devolved rather quickly.

“Get the f**k outta here,” Chaves said as the confrontation grew.

“You we’re two laps behind,” the ninth-place Pagenaud said of the Harding driver’s 17th-place entry.

“As soon as you got next to me, I let you by,” Chaves continued.

With a few more insults added in during the exchange, the two parted ways and put and end to their rainy and unsatisfying days.
