I live just around the corner from the track, can hear the cars from my house. Looks like it’s going to be a fantastic day for it. There has been lots of red and blue walking past my house. No need to give tickets away like the Melbourne GP. Going to be a good couple of days of racing that’s for sure. :)
The attraction of F1 is that it’s the pinnacle of open wheeled and open cockpit racing. What next? Closed wheel? How ridiculous.
Indy is just not as safe as F1, easy to see why when you have oval tracks with walls on the outside and so many cars. If one of the front runners ends up in the wall they have no place else to go but into the path of the 30 something cars following.
