Dan Wheldon got his 2007 Indy Car title campaign off to the best possible start with an utterly dominating win at Miami-Homestead.
Only a fumbled pit stop by the Ganassi team that briefly dropped him to ninth threatened to spoil his day. But the ease with which Wheldon breezed ahead of the others and back into a commanding lead will have struck fear into the hearts of his rivals.
Behind Wheldon – who won the Miami race for the third year in a row – team mate Scott Dixon underlined the dominance of the Ganassi outfit. Reigning champion San Hornish was third ahead of Vitor Meira, Tony Kanaan and Ed Carpenter.
