Herta was astonishingly quick at the end... they must have absolutely nailed the setup on the car, coupled with some obviously excellent driving. Bravo to the rookie and the rookie team around him.

Some masterful action from the young guns whilst the old fogies struggled. Well done Herta.

I am so happy Herta won, what a great ride! But really, this stupid caution stuff really ruins IndyCar for me, Rossi just got completely screwed for no reason whatsoever.

Nice to see a new driver and team in victory lane. Herta drove a great race, had a perfect restart after the yellow and just motored away from there. All that taken into account I have to agree with Power that the timing of a yellow shouldn't be what determines the winner. Pits should not be closed when a yellow is thrown. Racing is legitimately close enough in the series that NASCAR style gimmicks are not necessary.

That yellow should never have been thrown anyway, local yellows would have been more than good enough.

Even F1 keeps the pits open under yellow.

I didn't get to see as much of the race as I wanted to, but great to see Herta win and O'Ward get a top 10. O'Ward lost a couple spots at the end or the result would have been better. I was interested to see how Indycar raced at Cota. I gotta say I didn't enjoy it a ton. I think it is just the track that is a turnoff for me. I had hoped seeing the series there would make it more enjoyable but the track is still dull to me.

I just went back a page to catchup after my previous post, and saw this. You predicted my complaints! I've never been in person, and doubt i ever will.

Somewhat in defense of the venue, there was some pretty good racing going on. Quite a bit of passing in mid-field, nothing at the front.

I have to say there was slightly 'artificial' feel all the time though racing was enjoyable in the end when Herta took the lead.

Thanks very much, this makes alot of sense.

Really enjoyed the race yesterday, think Colton Herta is something special. I knew he was talented based on his time in Euroformula and Indy Lights but his performance for BMW in the Daytona 24 hours was superb and at COTA he was seriously impressive. Will be interesting to see if he can continue this form throughout the season.

F1 has no fuel recharge, so there's no reason for them to keep pits open.

The crashed car was right in the pitlane entrance.
