Gotta hand it to you guys, I'm impressed you can put up with this standard of coverage. So many ad breaks and nonsense.

I can't get over how beautiful the cars look now days though.
It's not like I have an option and compared to other sports this is informed coverage. NASCAR is make it up as you go, and what I was told was better coverage in F1 with whoever does the F1 streaming coverage is just as bad with making things up. Plus I don't watch every minute of the coverage so maybe I don't notice details

I have to admit, I don't watch any other sports outside of motor racing so have nothing to compare it to. And I imagine our nations have very different coverage of very different sports anyway.

Anything is better than the old ITV F1 days though. Where they'd ask Mark Blundell hard-hitting questions like "How important is pole position Mark?" "It's very important, starting from the front is a big advantage!" "Thanks Mark!"

Seems like the gaps have stablised between the top 3 now.

Newgarden just stomped the field, he pulled a hella gap in the last 4 laps just to prove he was toying with them all throughout the race

I try to get the BT Sport/ESPN HD feed, as you get the BT Sport commentary team, when NBCSN goes to an ad break but today the feed is buffering like crazy and it's not easy to follow what's going on.

Result

Bad luck for Power, however a commanding drive from Josef Newgarden and just what he needed to defend his driver's title. Penske were top Chevy, with the rest of the top 6 places taken by Honda. Rossi finished 16th, maybe poetic justice?

2 Ryan Hunter-Reay, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 55. 3.3759s
3 Scott Dixon, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 55. 5.4902s
4 Takuma Sato, Rahal Letterman Lanigan. Dallara/Honda. 55. 14.8772s
5 Robert Wickens, Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. Dallara/Honda. 55 23.8993s
6 Graham Rahal, Rahal Letterman Lanigan. Dallara/Honda. 55. 32.5513s
7 Simon Pagenaud, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet/ 55. 42.1868s
8 Spencer Pigot, Ed Carpenter Racing. Dallara/Chevrolet. 55. 42.5336s
9 Ed Jones, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 55. 46.2118s
10 James Hinchcliffe, Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. Dallara/Honda. 55. 47.5359s
11 Marco Andretti, Andretti Herta. Dallara/Honda. 55. 48.1468s
12 Jordan King, Ed Carpenter Racing. Dallara/Chevrolet. 55. 53.4242s
13 Sebastien Bourdais, Dale Coyne Racing. Dallara/Honda. 55. 1m00.3249s
14 Tony Kanaan, AJ Foyt Enterprises. Dallara/Chevrolet. 55. 1m05.2583s

IndyCar and Road America have agreed to a three-year extension for the series to continue racing at the venue.

It wasn't the best race as it was dominated by Newgarden, but it's always nice to see Indycars on Road America. What a great crowd too!
