Find the American commentary far better than Croft.

Interested to see them penalise the chap on the outside at the start, my view he was squeezed onto wet grass and was then a passenger.

Talking of sky coverage, we upgraded to get the NFL channel added, I hope to god Sky put a UK team in like the BBC did! The first game had an advert everytime they went for a 30 second time out ffs

I think its mainly the commentary isnt dumbed down to excite 12 years old and the racing is interesting enough it doesnt need a loud shouty voice in attempt to create excitement.

I agree regarding ferruci/herta at the start. Everyone dislikes ferruci (myself included) after his shenanigans in F2 which I believe he is still banned from but he did nothing wrong IMO, He went around the outside and Herta ran not just slightly wide but all the way to the edge of the track and forced ferruci onto the grass. From there it was either get back on track before the corner as he did or he was going to end up coming back on track at the apex and going nose into someones side pod. Cant say he didnt anything wrong.

Yes that was a good race, I’m glad the championship has closed up a bit. Veekay did well to grab his first podium.

Enjoyed race 2 too.

Shame during the season we didn't get any rain on a non oval. I was looking forward to see how the aero screens handled it!

Off to St Petes then to see if Scott can hang on.

They didn’t show the first 10 minutes at least, they switched to it with 50 seconds left of round 1.
