Comment of the day

IndyCar St Petersburg, 2016
IndyCar and F1 seem to be converging
Have IndyCar’s aero kits made it too much like F1?

I’m worried IndyCar is becoming like F1 with grip levels.

They should just up the boost of the turbos instead of these body kits, the last couple seasons have been great with overtaking, this season with higher grip and dirty air might not be as good – it might be like F1.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday to Rob Wilson!
