SONOMA, Calif. – Will Power won at Sonoma Raceway for the third time in four years Sunday, earning his first victory of the IndyCar season when he took advantage of a penalty to Scott Dixon for injuring three members of Power’s pit crew.

Dixon led until he received a drive-through penalty with 15 laps to go for clipping a tire in the left hand of Power’s tire holder. The tire holder went flying into another crew member, and a third crew member was injured by an air gun.

Dixon said he thought Power’s crew got in his way on purpose, leaving him angry and confused by IndyCar’s ruling against him.

“That’s probably the most blatant thing I’ve seen in a long time,” Dixon said. “You watch most pit guys, they try to get out of the way of other people, so that was a bit of a (classless) move, to be honest. ... If that’s the way they want to try and win, that’s pretty bad.”

Power scoffed at the idea gamesmanship occurred in his first victory since early last season in Brazil.

“It reminds me of so many things that’s happened to us in the last three years, so we’ll take it,” Power said. “I would be very surprised (if it was intentional).”

Other race

Sebastian Vettel overtook Lewis Hamilton on the first lap and comfortably held on to win the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, extending his Formula One lead.

Red Bull driver Vettel has five victories this year and is 46 points ahead of second-place Fernando Alonso of Ferrari.
