Yes, shocking. That can't be allowed to happen. Good heavens that was close to tragedy.

Re: Indy500

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...

I can't wait! Every year I grumble about Monaco being a crummy race and then, as the race approaches I get so excited, almost giddy about it. One day I must go see it in person. I hope there is some good racing today. Lewis will probably be impossible to beat, so I am looking forward to some battles...

Re: Indycar - COTA (Anyone else giving it a watch?)

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...
