Even though Indy was a little different today, I enjoyed the hell out of it.  And Rossi revealed how big his balls were today, too.

Trust me, I was nervous as hell those last few laps.  No way did I think he'd be able to dominate literally all night long like that.

Good win by Power. I've come to like him more now that he's not running over the top of everyone to get to first. He's become a cool, calculating and  fast driver, IMHO. Congrats to Daniel for the obvious reasons. I turned off the World 600. Too boring to watch after seeing Monaco I'm afraid. LOL

Well there wasn't even one proper safety car and despite the new tyre everyone in the front only stopped once.

The problem with this race that everyone was saving their tyres.   This is not racing.  Though I am glad that Daniel won though!!...Smile

^ Monaco is so iconic but I don't remember ever seeing one on TV that was not a procession. The first one I watched was in 1975 on ABC's Wide World of Sports (I think). It was run in the rain with Lauda winning. The rain added a lot of excitement and going through that tunnel! Wow!

Doh! Cant believe I forgot to post here. I was travelling at the time. 

Belated congrats to Ricciardo! Redemption served! 

Congrats to Seb for his Canada win! 
Takes a, razor thin, lead for the title again. THIS is what Im talking about, real competition. 

Unlike Kimi....hurts to say from your biggest fan since 2003, time to hang it up Iceman. Unless Seb is that superior with a car that is beneath him (which is possible) he just isn't hanging at all. Kinda sad, someone else could be there.

^Like Ricciardo.  Could you imagine the fight he could give Seb, if the team allowed it?  It would make F1 interesting again.

Scott Dixon takes a pretty dominating win last night at Texas and takes the points lead over Alexander Rossi and Will Power, who had issues and dropped to third.  I'm still hoping Rossi can keep his consistency going and take the title fight to Sonoma when I go. Tongue

I can't believe no one is talking about Alonso conquering the second leg of the Triple Crown over the weekend, as "easy" as it might have come.  Now, he needs to come back to IndyCar full time and conquer Indy.
