Ooo I can't wait. This race will be so exciting. Great to see the gravel trap brought closer at that corner as well.

Re: 2019 Austrian Grand Prix Race Thread

Regardless of how you feel about that pass, it is AWFUL for F1 that the last three podiums are up to the Stewards. Horrible for the sport. This. While you can't eliminate stewarding, they need to make these decisions a lot faster - prior to podiums. If that means hustling the drivers before them fo...

Re: Indycar at Road America

I watched it again and just can't see it as looking shabby, except for the old looking concrete barriers. In any case, it doesn't really matter and it was a great show. If any of you have the chance to go there you will love the place.

Re: Indycar at Road America

Rossi is very hungry for an Indycar championship. And I think he will get it this year. I don't know if a backmarker F1 team would lure him away.
Regarding the condition of the track, sure there is worn paint but the place overall is spectacular.

Re: Indycar at Road America

I think Indycars are a good advert for why making the cars simpler would be a good thing. I don't want F1 to be a spec series, but it doesn't need to be, just far, far less aero dependant. Aero does absolutely nothing for the quality of the show, it does little to technologically advance the motor ...

I too hoped that there would be more actual racing this season. I don't think we are going to see it though. The cars, the tightening up of rules, etc seem to be leading us down a path of blah.

I've attached a link to the 6 minute highlight video from the official Indycar website if any of you are interested. It was a pleasure to watch this race after the lacklustre French GP to say the ...

I'm not a seasoned Indy follower by any means but it looked to me that Pagenaud got a bit lucky, not really doing anything to manage fuel (ignoring requests from the pitwall) and instead gambling on there being an accident so that he could save fuel while the yellows were out. Without that Bourdais...

Indeed but when F1 is judged to be boring because of the lack of overtaking that's mainly a product of the cars being so much faster than Indycars, Indycars being 14 seconds slower than F1 cars is probably mainly because of the crude aero which conversely allows the car to follow more closer and al...
