Getting only the first 2-3 rows formed up for the start has been normal at Long Beach for ages. Given just how slow that hairpin is, the only proper fix would be to extend the corner further toward the intersection with Ocean so that they have more straight before the start/finish line.

Long Beach and St. Petersburg aren't that dissimilar on average lap speed. If anything, the carpark section at St. Pete is tighter/more confined than the one at Long Beach.

Unfortunately, I don't think the link road is there anymore; otherwise, I'd suggest going back to the 1999 layout to improve the racing. Putting that aside, I think they should do like CART had it, and not have the curbing at Turn 4.

I was just able to watch the race tonight. I thought it was an entertaining and good race. Some disappointments, like bourdais' result, getting caught out by the yellow, the pass penalized, pagenaud being knocked out in turn one. And the commercials, which ESPN has now spoiled me on.

But, a fun race, and I did notice kanaan pass Newgarden at one point and was surprised. Rahal owning up to the incident and no argument over penalty was nice to see. His recovery was good as well, but flew under the radar in the coverage. Rossi looks like he's in that rarified air of the elite right now.

Bourdais still 4th in championship despite bad luck, he might make a run at a 5th even with the limitations. I don't know that I've ever seen him look as good as he is right now. That pass had the two former racers in the booth in awe. All Townsend bell could do is laugh. To be doing stuff like that and last week at his age, after what happened last year, is amazing.

During the first half of the race, the TV director missed several overtakes, and selected random cameras. I felt like ABC was back.

It felt like an old alms broadcast as Newgarden pulled alongside power for a pass... And the camera switched to some random corner where it was a second or two before a car showed up.
