I enjoyed that race Sato proved unbeatable but there was some good racing all the way down the field even Sato had an off it was a very technical track.

Only 3 Chevrolets in the top 15 (all 3 Penske cars) I wonder if the Alonso curse has struck again, he's got Chevrolet power this year following his Honda blow up at Indy in 2017.

Can it be much worse? Still it’s been a good day with Blancpain, elms etc

And I thought the anthem sung at the US MotoGP today was bad.

I thought the race started at 9. We are nearly there but my goodness, isn't the American build up stuff really cheesy.

I wouldn't have bothered with it until now if I'd known.

That anthem was terrible. hehe

Do like the way they restart the cars so they can continue racing.

These Indycars seem quite tough.

When you watch an Indycar race it certainly brings home how far ahead the tracks have moved and how much more advanced even the basics like pit wall equipment has become in F1 and the other modern FIA events. It's like watching an F1 race from 20 years ago! The tracks look knackered.

When I watch Indycar it brings home how far backwards F1 has gone. I love the no BS approach of Indycar, identical cars so it’s down to the driver and teams (bar engine choice) small crew of people, simple aero, relatively inexpensive, cars sound and look good, plenty of overtaking

...it’s actually what F1 fans are calling for, and it’s right under their noses

Very few have, I think Kenny Rogers might have had a go though.
