    Since the live coverage starts on BT Sport 2 at 1.30am on Sunday, you might want to catch the re-run at 5.30pm on ESPN.

    Great domination by Penske, 1-2-3. Dixon has been left quite behind but he can easily make up some places. Nice job by Tagliani, he hasn’t raced for quite some time. Also, is EJ Viso injured after Houston?

    @sigman1998 – Apparently he is not feeling good enough to race on OVALS!

    At least Conway had a reason not to race on ovals, but Viso doing something like that is at least ridiculous.

    Could be linked to the Venezuelan government’s investigation into currency fraud by race drivers. Sounds like Maldonado is involved judging by the $66 million quoted here: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/10/18/us-venezuela-currency-idUSBRE99H03220131018

    Power was a contender for the championship for the past few years, but he was messing up in the finale. Now that he is not a contender, he made the perfect finale. Power is getting stressed really easily.

    Ugh, Wilson’s accident was too close for comfort to becoming another Zanardi. I’ll be glad to see the back of this racing year – too many lives lost, too many injuries and, apart from Indycar, the racing hasn’t been that great.

    Good to hear Justin is basically okay. I wonder who’s quicker on crutches – him or Dario?

    Not sure that comparison is appropriate, the chassis remained intact. If anything, perhaps too intact, because the 60+ Gs were partially transferred to the cockpit area.

    Good end to a very competative season. Kinda bizarre that Dixon was the only Honda entrant left at the end of the race.
    Also, i bet Power is kicking himself that he finally managed a win at the end of the season, but only when there was nothing at stake.
