From memory the guys that made stopping more work at Ohio were able to get clear air.  WIth these yellows I don't see it working...

That cycling thing was extra weird because that was what was on NBC Sports immediately preceding Indycar. So the broadcast is continuing in some other dimension, apparently.

The time off from Mid Ohio seemed to make this group extra comedic. I love restarts.

Bourdais undid the recovering of positions after the first incident, he'd gotten back up to 13th.

No issues mate, just that the commentators are dull and disheartening always needing to remind us what Charlie's ailment is. It's the same thing with Hinchcliffe's mayor thing.

Hearing about it every weekend for the last 3 years is my guess.
