Alonso played himself in slowly, posting the 19th fastest speed on opening day. The Spaniard will do so in a McLaren-Andretti Autosport entry powered by Honda. That pace would have been good enough for just 27th fastest Sunday.
Other noteworthy qualifying performances included Ryan Hunter-Reay (No. 28 DHL Andretti Autosport Honda, 231.442 mph), who paced Group 1 which determined starting positions 10-33 for Sunday's race and will start 10th; Oriol Servia (No. 16 Manitowoc Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda, 230.309 mph), who was the fastest non-regular Indy auto driver other than Alonso and will start 12th; and 2016 pole sitter James Hinchcliffe (No. 5 Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda, 229.860 mph), who struggled in his run and will start 17th.
Andretti will be attempting to make his 12th start in "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing".
"It has been a fantastic week of running", he added, "a fantastic week of different experiences, running alone, high boost, low boost; every lap feels different. Thanks to Chevrolet for giving me a good bullet and for making the best aero out here right now".

Going into the day, Dixon figured the conditions were such he could increase his speed from Saturday, where the fastest nine drivers earned a shot at the pole on Sunday.
The New Zealander finished with a four-lap average of 232.164 miles per hour, claiming his third Indianapolis 500 pole with the best qualifying run in 21 years. Dixon's first lap of 232.595 also was the fastest since Luyendyk's record lap of 237.498 in 1996. "Now we just need to regroup and focus on doing this all again tomorrow and hopefully grabbing that pole position".
Once all of the cars that were guaranteed a qualifying time have run their four laps, it's open for anyone else to set a time (if they have not yet done so) or make a re-run if they think they can better their time from the Fast Lane.
