As CoTa's a Tilkedrome (though not the worst of Tilke) they have European restriction policies despite the location in mid-Southern Texas.

That has nothing to do with it, he was consulted in construction, his firm did not build the track nor do they manage it.

Why is the timing line just before turn 19 rather than the traditional start/finish line?

Haven't a clue. I presume F1 uses the start/finish line?

They were saying in the commentary that there aren't any track limits, which may have something to do with it?

I'm reasonably sure IndyCar habitually uses a timing line at road/street courses during qualifying that is one or two turns before the pit entrance, as it means the cars can avoid having to do most of another ("cool down") lap before entering the pit lane.

That was a very clean start. Veach goes off between Turns 2 and 3 but rejoins.

First commercial break but they've split the screen, so no loss of track action.

First FCY, as Rosenqvist loses it on cold tyres and runs into Hinchliffe.

That's Power's race shot. His engine is running but he can't move. The pit crew even tried push starting.

A clean restart and excellent get away from Herta. A number of drivers banging wheels.

Congrats to Colton Herta, and Harding Steinbrenner Racing on both their debut wins. Herta is the youngest driver to win an IndyCar race.

Got to feel sorry for Will Power but a consolation second place for Newgarden, as he extends his championship lead.
