Not a bad race but not a great race either. Shame both AMSP retired, as it sort of took the edge off.

As for AMSP, that's a weekend they would rather forget. Both cars qualified well, but then to have both go out like that is very harsh. However that was a good, solid drive from McLaughlin, getting out of the winless doldrums and good to see Power get up onto the podium, after a bad start that sent him to the back of the field. Both Penske and Chevrolet will be pleased with that result.

What is going on at Andretti Autosport, particularly with Grosjean and Rossi? Michael Andretti needs to sort that out before Toronto.

From the way Andretti is covered it appears they are each little kingdoms and no one talks. It always sounds like setup conversation is a trade-off between the teams and they have to go ask cause there's no prior discussions. Feels like upper management may be a bit distracted trying to spend others' money to buy more toys and haven't put people between Mikey and the teams, ala Tim Cindric/Chad Knaus at Penske/Hendrick.

it was indeed a goat show from Andretti drivers, which made for some entertainment but this one had too many FCYs, for my liking.

Speaking of goat shows, i wonder if Will Power's boneheaded move on the first lap actually helped him by getting off strategy.

Good work from Penske and Scotty Mac.

Well that's not good for Indy, or IMSA but it will be over there too.

Cup on USA drew almost 2 million, F1 drew 1.25 mil on ESPN2, SRX on CBS at night drew 975k, Indy on NBC managed 877k TV only, but chance of 100k streamers? Seems even on OTA the numbers ain't great. Next round ain't gonna be great either with it being Peacock only.

Pato must be gettimg pretty peeved with AMSP. Last weekend it was reliability, accepted, but I just don't see them matching his ability to challenge for the title again?

Why are they so hellbent on trying to sign more lead drivers? Could it be that Pato is moving on within Mclaren next year after all?

It seems Seidl would like to sign Piastri so Pato is staying where he is....
