I dunno if I agree with that. Power gave Rahal a love tap sure, but he lost it all by himself on the kerb
Putting my V8 admin hat on for a moment, he wouldn't have been on the curb if Power hadn't given him the love tap... So some responsibility is on Power at least.
Some yes.

What was really nasty though is the piece of unprotected concrete wall that Rahal hit.
Probably not as bad as it looked, it moved which is more than a tyre wall would have done, we both know how they tend to snap you in ;)
I am very sorry if you find my posts long and boring, I like to type and often go off on a tangent.

Yeah it was just that. O’Ward is destroying them today. And Ericsson seems to be having a great race for once!

I might need to leave it there though...Starting work in 6 hours.

Very intriguing race with multiple strategies at the moment.

Woohoo! First Swedish win since Kenny Bräck in Mexico 2002!

That was a great win, Pato obviously took the wrong tyre choice with those reds at the end. You have to feel bad for the guy, but Rosenqvist did great.

I'm not 100% sure he had any fresh rubber left. I think the scuffed reds he used were the best compound available for him.

The Indycar community turned it to a battle cry for Felix and Marcus. CGR is even selling Börk-merch.

Not sure I can ever tire of seeing an Indycar going into turn 1 at Road America. The way the cars move around - never see that in F1. Exhilerating to watch, even on TV.

That was an excellent race. Incidents, plenty of passing. Intrigue at the front, and a pass. Terrific!

Congrats Felix!
