This makes for fascinating reading about the things that went wrong:

Well it sounds like if they want to do it next year they should start NOW, get Fernando to all the remaining ovals this year and sign a deal with a good Chevy team!

Yes that would make sense, get some experience and momentum on the programme.

As for this year's race there's good news on the broadcast front, as Tom Gaymor and Alex Brundle will be commentating whilst the US are on their ad breaks

...and what a good race, especially the closing laps. The Sky coverage was just the tonic for the almost constant ad-breaks.
Also Alex Brundle sounds just like his dad.

Now let’s hope Sky keep this format, they may have pinched it from BT but even they had breaks during Yellows.

Depending on how you read this, the UK commentary in breaks might be staying:

Guess we'll find out next weekend.

Damon Hill was in Indianapolis and clearly enjoyed it, and is suggesting to Lewis Hamilton he should have a go:

(spoilers in that tweet for anyone who hasn't seen the race yet.)

Indycars will look very different next year with this:

It will be interesting to see how much tyre debris and oil etc accumulates, presumably they'll have big tear-offs that get removed at pit stops.

Shame about the central pillar but I guess the tech isn’t quite there yet. Super interesting if it clears up doubt and “what if” about using a screen though.

Eight hour recording of Indycar on my Sky box this morning but fair play to them it got the whole race. Now they just need to sort out consistently adding races to the series link.

The reverse grid W Series race from this morning is very well worth a watch, the live stream is available for replay on their YouTube channel:

It seems that Dale Jnr had his biggy after he retired! All survived from what they say but watch the end for the most inappropriate advert ever.

You might want to check your Sky+ recordings as I found they’ve added serieslink to Indycar at last but have somehow broken it as I found It recording the SD as well as the HD versions. There is nothing major to watch today as they aren’t qualifying due to weather but it’s repeated the link for tomorrow as well so delete what you don’t need.

Thanks for the warning! Fortunately mine was ok, but maybe because I added them manually earlier in the week when I saw the series link hadn't worked.

Scary start just now, fortunately everyone seems to be ok though. Rossi had a very close call with debris and Rosenquist lucky not to end up fully in the fence.

Rosenqvist off to hospital for more checks, I think they said he walked to the ambulance so hopefully nothing too serious.
