This sounds like an entertaining race; I'll have to download and watch it later. Can't really tell if it's a good "SATOOOO" or a bad "SATOOOO" though. :D

Man, no need to feel bad for my man Sato. He raced hard and showed what he's about. Sato is about that life. He will get some more wins this year.

That was real racing. Im tired of this "blocking" BS, that we've got in racing lately, maybe Sato shouldve pulled over and painted an arrow and build a 20ft sideroad for him to pass on to? This was race for lead, not a backmarker and a leader.

Should get rid of the stupid "blocking" rule when its for position, more excitement.

Total chaos for 90% of the race and fantasting racing for the rest of it. Still don't know how Newgarden and Pagenaud got there by the last restart, but who cares :up:

Sato was aggresive, but I'm glad they didn't penalize him.

Well, I don't often applaud, but I had to applaud Hinchcliffe there. Great move.

As the commentator has just said (can never remember his name), the lack of a Sato penalty sets the tone for the rest of the season.

Defensive driving is okay, when you swerve and/or don't leave the guy room that's blocking. It takes no skill.

I haven't watched an Indy Car race live for a few years (other than the 500), but I'm glad I caught the end of this one! Look at Sato's hands working in the cockpit coming out of the final corner, fantastic racing.

It's going to be great then. :up:

Sato simply drove a straight line where the track curved inward.

Indycar is four-for-four in entertaining races this season.

Sato's braking into the last corner was out of this world.

People act like Schumacher never happened. If Indy really thinks that Sato was blocking, then they need to pull their heads out they butt. Sato made 1 move on those straights.

In defense of Sato he was driving on tyres that were 40-odd laps old.

You didn't miss too much, apart from the usual "And what the hell will happen to Will Power this week" sweepstakes.

But that's race fans for you. Give em a good finish and they'll forget if the first 75% of the race was run under yellow  ;)

I reckoned they were shot from about three laps out.

If there's no penalties applied, according to Indycar's Twitter feed, Sato leads the points standings with Marco in 2nd, 13 pts back.

I like the half joking tweet by Briscoe,

"I think Sato's blocking looked worse than it was. The "straight" there isn't straight and he was technically apexing the bends... Maybe :-)"

Was he blocking? Maybe, but didn't we see a lot of that at St. Petersburg will little or no penalty?
