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...

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

And that's the fine line between hero and zero at Indy; he was P1 all through... - first driver over 231mph...
