IndyCar's newest winner is facing a question.

When will James Hinchcliffe get victory No. 2?

Hinchcliffe picked up his first career victory two weeks ago in the IndyCar season-opener at St. Petersburg, but it did little to quell the pressure on the Andretti Autosport driver. He says his internal expectations have gone up.

Hinchcliffe believes he can contend in Sunday's race in Birmingham, where he was second fastest in testing last month behind Will Power.
