The team's second car held back during a pace car ('nanny car') period and allowed the lead car to get a pit stop in without being passed by the field.The CAMS are looking at whether or not it was a 'team orders' decision to slow down that much and what penalties should apply.


Thanks for the translation, Ray!

Some posts have had to be removed. There’s plenty of scope for political discussion in the Paddock Club. TNF is not the place for it.

Thanks for letting us know, Brian.

What an amazing guy Penske is -- deserved honor, and good for the mainstream view of racing, too.

Can anyone name another person to even approach a similar impact on our sport for 55 solid years?

Congratulations, Captain. I'd like to think Mark is smiling somewhere.

Sadly comes on the heals of the Penske Aussie V8 team's monster fine from the Bathurst race.

It has been announced that the Penske organization will acquire the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as well as the Indy car series. I think this is great news. The track and the series could not hope for a better steward.

I would love to see Penske stage some races in the U.K. and in Europe, maybe at some venues that have been snubbed by F1 but are up to standard. If that makes F1 uncomfortable, so be it. One thing’s sure: If Penske does it it’ll be done right.

I don't imagine that would make F1 uncomfortable.  They have enough venues of their own already.  All that Indycar would achieve is to increase the teams' costs by having flyaway races.  They wouldn't get much of a crowd (although possibly a better one than they manage at most US venues) and their sponsors wouldn't get much benefit as most Indycar sponsors are US domestic-specific.
