I mean seriously, you couldn't have scripted this to be more amusing if you tried. First his youngest driver causes a crash, then his second-youngest drives into his team mate and wipes him out.

3 yellows down, 1 to go!

That was quite amazing though, it was as if he completely forgot there could be other cars on the track.

Bourdais vs. Montoya vs. Sato. What could possibly go wrong?

Sage fucking Karam :lol:

Okay, no more yellows please.

I'm told american marshals aren't allowed on the race track when the track is under green. So they have to throw a full course yellow to allow the marshal to drive up to the debris clear it, then drive off.

America. you do love your cars.

In fairness, would you want to be on the track with these drivers?

So bloody artificial too. Shit, caution near the end. Best go red so we can go green at the end.

Despite it being amateur hour and being repeatedly subjected to 'The Ladbrokes life', it's been a very entertaining race to watch. Do you need a Super License or equivalent to race in IndyCar like you do in F1?

Sato could win this too, he's ahead on fuel and the red rather than yellow does not help JPM or Seabass at all.

Great by Sato, a Sato win would just top the day off now.

I must admit being able to chat about it as it's happened has made it a lot more fun. Hooray for RLLMUK!

It's an entertaining formula of this type of stuff. For all the artifice of full course cautions and the occasional clumsiness of the drivers, it's fun to watch, especially at circuits that F1 wouldn't dream of racing at - Watkins Glen, for example.

Texas next week, too. Batshit track made thankfully slightly less terrifying by the cars now not running three-wide for every lap.

Do you think so? Since lap 37 we've had six yellows and 7 laps of green flag racing out of 27 laps. The occasional touch during a pass is one thing. But right now this is like touring cars where after a while you're so used to the "rubbing" it's just not interesting.
