    Reuss is not the normal pace car driver. I don't know if he was just in it for the morning or what but I think he completed one turn and spun in the next one?
    the regular guy was driving that car very fast all over the circuit and I believe is an IMSA guy.
    I was very impressed with Dixon. He really made it happen.
    Also if you were following dave w's accident. The guy behind him was trying to get a jump on the start, wasn't watching the pack as much as the starter who was about to go green. So he's on it at the same time the pole sitter had eased off and was slowing slightly, along with everyone else.
    Anyway Dave got hit from behind and that shoved the car sideways and into the wall.

    Probably should have made a mention about Marco's pole on Saturday. The dude takes a lot of crap but absolutely crushed out a perfect lap. The Indycar Radio guys were going nuts after he obliterated the previous top time.

    And on the flip side, Kimball continues to do Kimball things and really had trouble owning up to it. His twitter folk had no problem reminding everyone when someone hit him from behind a few months back. Clownshoes.

    Wasn't Kimball penalized for that act also? I thought I heard that.

    Yup. Avoidable contact. For all the crap that Marco gets as being the worst full-time driver, you could make a case for Charlie. I don't think Marco wrecks nearly enough. Trouble just seems to find Kimball everywhere.

    Maybe if they made the offender pay for the damage to the other cars that he caused we'd have less of this crap.

    I bet Verstappen is in indycar in 2 years with SPM and Wickens is with Penske.

    The Iceman with a victory on 2 straight weekends. Lots of top 5s and top 10s in between now has him atop of the leaderboard.

    Rossi 23 points down. Threw 22 points out the window last Sunday I think I read. I wonder if he's going to want those points back in a few months.

    Pretty much of a parade. Max did ok and kept his race clean. There was some racing lower down the board but none at the top. I'm surprised Kiki was so slow.

    I think you mean Kimi...

    I thought I read he was stuck with an older engine. Otherwise, yeah, he was really slow compared to Vettel.

    I was surprised Montreal produced such a non-eventful race. Usually it's the opposite there.

    here's a lap of Paul Ricard by Lewis Hamilton. Fairly interesting commentary.

    In some big, but not all that surprising news- Red Bull changes to Honda power next season https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/13...da-engine-deal

    Interesting move.

    I think this will prove to be a great move. Honda is committed to winning but they were cut short two years of development at McLaren when the team refused to modify their chassis to accommodate the engine. Now with a full year with Toro Roso to develop I think they’ll be very strong next year with RB.
