Felix Rosenqvist says he’ll talk to Arrow McLaren teammate Alexander Rossi about the late race battle at Detroit that led first to contact between between the pair, and then to contact between Rossi and the wall. But the Swede believes that those sorts of incidents come with the territory of having teammates with strong equipment fighting up front.

The pair were fighting over third in the closing laps with Rossi ahead when they hip-checked each other, and on the second-last lap, Rosenqvist made a move to the inside of Rossi at Turn 3 that sent the No. 7 Chevy bouncing off the outside wall. No harm done to either car outside of Rossi losing a place to Ganassi’s Scott Dixon, and Rosenqvist and Rossi finished third and fifth respectively.

“We race hard, but I think we also race fair,” said Rosenqvist. “Obviously we like each other. We don’t have any intentions to put each other in the wall.
