    interesting watching the IndyCar qualifying we have a comparsion to F1 & IndyCar, it seems that IndyCar might even me a few seconds slower than a F2 car. as Hamilton was on pole with a 1:32.2 & Rosenquist in Q2 not the pole session did a 1:45.5, also lewis had average lap speed of 133.44mph & Rosenquist was 116.62mph

    In the race you will see another interesting comparison: there will probably be more true competition, wheel-to-wheel racing, and lead changes in the one race than you get in the entire F1 season.

    You could never notice the difference in lap times by watching the races. Competition is more important than lap times, at least to me.

    Seems to be an interesting time for me to start watching Indy as looks like a bit of a changing of the guard happening with a lot of young talent coming through. Colton Herta is youngest Indy Car winner ever. Got lucky with the SC but I guess that's just racing. Will Power not happy.

    By the way I thought F1 was bad with track limits but blimey.

    only got around to watching yesterday but I know them bloody track limits. really annoyed me at the penultimate corner because if they wanted cars to go there then track wouldve been built there. but there was no such thing as track limits on that race but that wasnt the only odd rule. how did Hinchcliffe get away with that on Rosenquist. punted him out & ruined victim race, also the top 2 that got caught out

    colton herta was quite good impressed the paddock in st pete, the mechanics love him, the pre race stat "best finish" made me laugh it was his only finish, then wins in his 2nd race as a 18yr old rookie. yeah he got fortunate but always 2nd or 3rd at no point was he going to drop off the podium. maybe when we always talking about who is the American driver to be in F1 its early days but this guy with 2 or 3 yrs in IndyCar might be the 1.

    So watched my third Indy Car race and I am starting to get into it now. I'm not blown away by the racing but it is interesting stuff. Having Sato and Bourdais on the podium this time out does make me wonder about the quality of the field but I think most people are aware of that.

    Rosenqvist seems to have gone backwards with Ericsson coming on strong. Not what I thought would happen. Always enjoyed seeing Jack Harvey race in junior formula so hoping he does well in Indy Car. Its not happening yet though.

    yeah that race was nothing special like an average F1 race that id probally give a 5 for. yeah I would say if it happens next week then maybe Rosenquist is a worry but he was taken out while in 7th in COTA & then struggled for pace in barber but then a lot of drivers stuggled for pace, Power, Hunter reay & pagenuad all struggled. I think it was more down to set up he just had alot of oversteer

    but still I like IndyCar & looking forward to long beach on sunday
