    I keep telling you all. The only safe thing is no driver. Second place, put a roof on the cars and doors to get in and out. OH, wait....we already have that. It's just called something else.

    I never said anything about following closely, just that it is the overtaking drivers responsibility to avoid contact. There are always extenuating circumstances and you can parse the hell out of...

    It is true throughout car racing that, absent the lead car altering their line to block, it is ALWAYS the overtaking car's responsibility to avoid contact. That includes restart laps.

    It's hard to say what exactly the punishment should be. The 10 second penalty was much too light. On the low side I would sit him for one race and remove any points earned in this last race. Those...

    A seasons worth of them might make a nice artificial reef for the benefit of sea life. So far they have served admirably as boat anchors.

    One other thing to consider is that the top teams in IndyCar, even if he came over, don't have a budget to pay him anywhere close to what he gets now. He'd take a MAJOR pay cut to do this series.

    Not so fun for Bourdais. That was a nasty hit, glad its only that much (relatively speaking) damage. Fred looked very smooth on his run, especially for a rookie.
