It wasn't about just letting it go. If you read the Autosport article I posted, #56, it says third paragraph down: "It was also believed that the wider approach to Turn 19 would help tyre wear at a track with high degradation, despite the bumpiness of the off-track line."

That's how I saw it at the time, hence my comment. I have yet to see the incident again.

I don't think hinchcliffe can be blamed at all. He was beyond the curbs, needing to re-enter the actual track himself. He can't or shouldn't have to let a car go through that is coming from even further beyond the "track", who is running out of pavement. From how far wide rosenqvist was, I think it was more on him to let up to get back to the track.

But I don't think it was either's fault, just a byproduct of the no track limit rules of the weekend. But I still like that they didn't enforce track limits.

Sorry, yes, I meant now! I am paying for F1 on Sky anyway, so for the first time ever I think, Indycar is part of the same TV package as F1 in the UK.

The corner sort of reminds me of the first turn at Cleveland in the CART days, which was 5 or 6 cars wide, but a flat plane. Guys trying all sorts of lines especially at the start. Why not have similar corners on other road circuits? There was quite a bit of inside/outside passing/maneuvering going on at COTA. Wider pavement in the corners seems to me like a good thing.

WEC proved you can have very good races on this track without anyone pushing anyone else wide and with basic respect towards the actual track. I thought this was not a good solution.

I was just able to watch the race and, first of all, I'll eat crow about my comments regarding the crowd. Indycar was right to go there as that was an excellent crowd. Hopefully the "ballpark" experience at the track won't put off people in the future, but it's waaaaaay different than what we're used to, fellas.

I was sceptical of Herta when I first saw the result but he certainly appears to be the real deal, doesn't he? Congrats to him!

A lot of people are commenting how without DRS there was better battling for position than there is in F1, where drivers wait for the DRS zone. It's how racing should be

On the contrary, I saw many overtakes in the backstraight, presumably when the overtaker was using the boost and the overtakee wasn't.

I had hoped seeing the series there would make it more enjoyable but the track is still dull to me.

Just finished it last night. Still don't really like the track but IndyCars there was good fun, IMHO.

As expansive as that place is, it looked pretty well attended, echoing some previous thread comments.

And F track limits
