    Watching it. They just go round and round and round and round and round. Got a crick in my neck already. The sheer speed makes it compelling. Av speed of 230+mph - for 200 laps. The American commentators aren't quite my cup of earl grey though...

    Seems like Alonso is going for a lower downforce setup than team mate Hunter-Reay...!

    Will Power 370.265
    Tony Kanaan 370.160
    Ed Jones 369.694

    Helio Castroneves 369.167
    JP Montoya 367.968
    Sage Karam 366.839

    Do you think Alonso will make the 'fast 9' Galahad ?

    Where's this from? Montoya's looking like he's going to miss out on the pole shootout... Alonso"/ first target is top 9...

    Very hard to say vintly. I reckon he'll be right on the cut off.

    According to the commentary team Alonso's car is minus one winglet versus Hunter-Reay

    I'd put money on Alonso either being in the top 4 or 5, or putting it in the wall!

    I don't know... so far it looks as though those with the lower downforce settings are the ones struggling....

    Very impressive. Given that most of the Penskes and Ganassis have already run, very likely to make it through.

    If he hadn't backed it into Turn 4, could have been even better than sixth.
