Cool suit failure pumped dry ice on the drivers head.

Never heard of a cool suit failure like that, but seems like they've repaired it. Here we go!

That is horrible driving. Slade should have given the corner up, outside line through there is aomalippery and gives inside man zero room for error. Horrible lap one driving.

It's not rocket science. If the car isn't safe it doesn't race. Restart time!

I would have thought that would be a problem with the car but fair enough.

Seems like everyone has got into a rhythm now

No like rain over say 6 months, not constant but a period where it rains enough to soak the earth. It looks bone dry for so early in spring, a lot of 40 degree days coming.

I cannot see lap times, hows he going?

Gee the cars with lowndes and tander as second drivers have a huge advantage, they lose little to nothing. They dont have the car speed but are reeling the fast stangs in.

Yeah. I’m amazed Penske can’t do better. It’s the car to have and they surely would have had every driver offering their services to get that seat. Premat almost seems like an afterthought.

Nearly 3 hours of racing, effectively no yellows and top 3 are nose to tail.

That is amazing.

McLaughlin and Premat are mates... 3rd in GP2, A1GP Champion... Premat is surely a good driver? :)

I guess, but it's rather a procession wouldn't you say?

 

The field size of 26 cars is particularly pathetic.  For obvious reasons, there was more action and more stories when the field size was 55.

Procession?? No. Its proper racing. Nose to tail, there have been many passes for the lead. We dont need chaos for a good race when ita this close.

Yes he is a good driver. But he isn’t a fast supercar driver. He would make as good second further down the grid, but Penske isn’t the place.

Those Indy drivers are very good as well, but they a far from the fastest out there. Supercars are very particular to drive. Bourdais is the only driver I can think of who jumped in one of these and was fast straight away.

I love watching SVG in this kind of situation.

 

Not many drivers could or would try to pass at the Cutting.

 

Of course, he might bin it in a few laps, but never a dull moment.
