Tony Kanaan's problems at the Indianapolis 500 returned Sunday in full force.

The defending race champion was forced to sit in his car for more than 43 seconds during one early pit stop and then much, much longer on another pit stop just a few laps later. He threw his arms in the air, knowing his chance to repeat as the winner was over.

The Brazilian has always been a fan favorite in Indy. His win last year came on his 12th try..

This year, he inherited the lead on Lap 32 as drivers cycled in for pit stops. He was still in contention when he returned to the pits on Lap 66, only to sit helplessly for 43.4 seconds and again a few laps later.
