It's not easy to watch and then there was a technical hitch, when it all went down but that can happen to any broadcast. Otherwise, it was so much better on BT Sport.

This is doing my head in, since lap 75 when the video feed started working again, they been going to an add break every 8-9 laps, then when they come back its random shots of boats out in the sea, just get back to the racing please! BT was so much better.

Congrats to Newgarden and also Penske, getting two drivers on the podium. A very respectable 4th place for Rosenquist.

What I saw of it, it looked like a good season opener but the TV coverage was dire.

Great strategy by Penske got them the win today. Rosenqvist looks very promising. I'm very happy the season is underway! This winter has sucked!

I suspect Sky are just relying on the US feed provided by NBC. I agree the coverage is bordering on the unwatchable, itííll be particularly jarring for F1 fans used to ad free racing and Skyís slick presentation.

Itíll be interesting to see if Sky are committed enough to try to improve things. These are early days.

When BT Sport used the US feed, they would switch the commentary back to their commentary team, during the ads and you could still watch the race. Early days yet, so hopefully someone will pick up on that.

It was a steady race that was probably a bit too dependent on pit stop intrigue. Rosenqvist put on a great move on Power early on and was courageous in the lead though it was funny when Power closed him down twice when leaving the pits.

I missed out on Hunter-Reay leaving the race - although my attention may have been divided.

Sky just threw that on. Naff as it may have been, you'd miss the supplementary BT sports commentary that filled the adverts.

Well not every race is going to be exciting, but it sounds like there was enough going on and the drivers put on a good show.

Well seems there's a lot opinions on the coverage here

Give Sky time is what I say. At least you guys still have the coverage, how many viewers did BT Sport's great coverage get?

From a broadcasting point of view and wanting to grow their audience, it makes sense for IndyCar to be on Sky's F1 channel. However, they are going to have to do something about the ad breaks, as it's a major turn off.
