Congrats to Rossi on back to back wins, in what was a very solid drive.

Dixon gets third, after claiming Rahal blocked him. Rahal will obviously appeal that.

I am with Graham on this one. If it wasn't the last lap, Dixon wouldn't have even complained.

I like races at Long Beach even though they can be a bit processional. Still don't know what O'Ward was doing at the beginning when he was getting passed by everyone.

Also, I still find it funny when the announcers talk about Ericsson and Rosenqvist as rookies.

Oh and final thought, Rossi is good.

Result

Not a bad race but a bit processional at times. Shame the battle with Dixon and Power didn't really materialise. Otherwise a masterful drive from Rossi, giving Andtretti Autosport their 200th win.

Newgarden drove a solid race, using his stops to get him into second place and extend his championship lead. Penske Team mate Pagenaud, continues to improve but Power's race was a mixed bag, because of a boost problem. Not the best start of the season and he is currently 6th.

RLLR's fortunes continue, with a good showing from both drivers. However, can't say the same for Colton Herta, who retired yet again.

1 Alexander Rossi, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 85. 1h41m35.5999s

I had to be a bit 'creative' when doing close-ups since I had lost my 20 mm lens but I succeeded.

btw: Price of beer inside the gates was astronomical $15 per 24 oz draft.

Agree with all of the above. Rahal simply drove the best line he could to defend his position - didn't move in reaction to where Dixon went.



I didn't understand the (evidently) fuel saving strategy of O'Ward in the first third of the race.


Rossi's performance must rank well up there with the most dominant in the history of the LBGP. I'm thinking of Brian Redman in the Haas Lola F5000 and Al Unser Jr. for both Galles and Penske. It would be interesting to go through the stats for each year and see how the other winners compare in terms of laps led, margin of victory, etc.

Well seems opinions divided here. I'm sure the stewards had a good view of that Rahal incident

Fuel saving has always been a part of Indycars

Rossi's dominating shows what could have been in F1. Certainly he shaken up the establishment. Best of the modern era, not comparable to different eras of racing here

Dixon suggests extending the race.

The blocking call seemed a bit harsh to me. Love LB!

O'Ward may have been on a strict fuel strategy based on radio communications at the beginning. Seemed odd.

Why is that funny? They are Indycar rookies after all, are they not?

They certainly are and as IndyCar rookies, they will face one of the biggest challenges yet, on the 26th of May.

So far, they haven't raced on any of the ovals and Indy is the first on the list.
