Doesn't help that they've scheduled the 2nd race at the same time as the IRL. I know it's hard to fit all the races in but you'd think they'd try an avoid a clash when they are in the same continent.

To be fair this circuit is actually quite wide but I'm amazed that Buemi is still making up places with that damage

Although it isn't great for the closeness of the championship, after his ranting yesterday I can't say I'm not pleased

I really like Formula E - yeah, maybe some of the circuits aren't the best (understandably really), but I generally find the races quite a bit more enjoyable than F1.

Buemi's rant yesterday:

what did you think to the commentary? i wasn't keen on the ozzie, and they were all far too excitable & shouty for my liking. in contrast, the race was a little dull - at least by WG general standards.

Yeah it was strange , but the Aussie is Leigh Diffey, does a lot of commentaries on the Aussie V8's and other motorsports , as for the race , superb race management by the furniture row racing team and brilliant driving by Truex Jr , he really deserves the championship this year

Cracking Indycar race at Watkins Glen

Switched over to Free Sports but I think I've seen more ads than trucks. Still nice to have it available.

OK Platty, you're our NASCAR man, was this a big deal, seems like it should be?

Blatant cheating , pit crews and the crew chief will try to gain any advantage , Joey Logano , had a win earlier on in the season which would have got him into the playoffs , he retained the points but the win became “encumbered “ , he didn’t win another race , and didn’t make the post season , I think NASCAR should get tougher on cheaters !!
