“It’s really sweet. That (win) didn’t come easy. We had to fight and wait for it for a long time but today was just one of these days when the stars align," said Bourdais, who also won at Toronto in 2004 and placed second and third last year. "I guess I was not expecting it because here I know how things can go. I was very relaxed before the race, just did the job and was hoping that things were going to pan out in our favor and they did and, couldn’t be any happier with this one.”
