FormulaFox has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
7/10; 5 for the race itself +2 for my absolute favorite driver winning.

I'm a bit too old to keep up with so many different pitstop strategies. Or perhaps TV graphics aren't the best to do it.

Anyway, after the last pitstops it got interesting, as cars got bunched up.

And the Golden Bowling Ball goes to... Hildebrand!

It wasn't an exciting race but with the different strategies, it was an absorbing race and more enjoyable than the Chinese GP. My major criticism, was the length of the 2nd and 3rd FCYs.

People present at that section of the track report that the 2nd FCY (the abnormally long one) was because of oil spill from Rossi's car.

At the time, I thought it might be oil. The 3rd was definitely too long. An extra lap might have made the difference to Newgarden catching Bourdais.

Decent enough race.

Will Power should've known better not to force the issue so early in the race, but he'll never learn that. Granted, it was a racing incident where Charlie thought he was clear into 3, but Will had two chances to avoid it.

As for the long FCY, the commentators said they took extra time on one to clean the track, which I am fine with, to a certain extent. Track will be dirty without it, so I'm also fine with leaving it. I couldn't tell how long was because I didn't watch it live, but fixing? Gimme a break.

Seabass is killing it on the streets.

James was untouchable on restarts, so congrats to the Mayor and America's Hat! Nice to see Hinch back in victory lane and Canada winning LB.

Now, enough of that. 'merica at Barber and Indy, please!
