IndyCar driver Scott Dixon has given the ultimate Kiwi response to an annoying Australian after a run-in with Will Power in practise ahead of the Sonoma series finale.

The four-time champ was exiting the pits during the practice session when Aussie Power flew past dropping a tyre off the track, kicking up a shower of dust and dirt in Dixon's face.

Dixon responded by giving him a hand gesture that summed up what he thinks of the juvenile Australian.

Both drivers had disappointing races - Dixon finished 17th while Power lost a number of laps and any chance of winning the championship with an electrical issue.


France's Simon Pagenaud claimed the title.
