Alonso and Honda, a match made in heaven. Or an Aldi version of it. Loved how he embraced the race, and how the American fans embraced him. Definitely hope to see him there again.

Well done Sato, and quite surprised by Chilton too. Scott Dixon's crash was horrifying live. Castroneves might have shat himself too when he went under Dixon's flying car. Thankfully Dixon walked away uninjured.

Meanwhile, Monaco.... Well, to be fair, it was always going to be impossible to overtake with the wider cars. At least the start of race radio exchange between Alonso and button was decent fun. vandoorne has been very disappointing so far this season. Thought he'd do better.

    yeah, Monaco was a bit meh, especially with the Ferrari team order.

    But Indy 500 was great indeed. Alonso was strong, but obviously struggling a bit in traffic and with adopting to changing conditions in the second half - but he definitely has a chance to win this in the future. Well, and Sato is a really cool winner of course, happy to see him finally taking a big one, aged 40. He went for a risky move again to take the win - last time against Franchitti he ended up in the wall, this time it worked out :cool

    Good lord. Never realised he's already hit 40! Would have him in a heartbeat over Stroll and Palmer, even with his crash happiness and erratic nature.

    As for the Motorsport triple crown, I'm guessing Hulkenberg has the best shot. Think Renault will pull out a top car sooner or later, and he's shown with A1 and Le Mans that he's good in different classifications. Just a matter of whether he'll give Indy a right go.

    Also, have you any idea whether Ferrari are rotating engine components through the season or be taking a grid penalty later on?

    rotating I think, all of them can still be used as far as I know. But I guess they may still face a penalty later on in the season.

    How did Vettel not get chucked out for that ?
    Exciting finish though.

    that was probably the strangest race since... dunno, Canada, when Button won from last?

    but yeah, I agree, black flag for Vettel would have been okay as well. He is on the edge now with the penalty points though, so he can't afford another offense of any kind in Austria, otherwise he'll get a one race ban

    Crazy race. Great fun after the multiple safety car stoppages. Agree that Vettel should've been black flagged. My initial opinion was that Hamilton brake tested Vettel. Apparently, he didn't.
