Here’s some interviews from the drivers post race:
IndyCar is returning, it seems, to becoming a racing series F1 pilots frequent because the racing is so competitive. Everyone has a chance to win.
If you want to see some great racing where the tires aren’t crap, cars can actually follow closely, and pass opportunities can be developed without pathetic aids like DRS, this is a great series to check out.
IndyCar doesn’t suffer the political bull$hi# the F1 circus can’t escape. In fact, it’s not just 2-4 drivers and one or two teams that have potential to win each week, but the entire field.
Imo, it’s a more respectable accomplishment to win the WDC in IndyCar because team resources and power unit advantages don’t determine the winner over driver skill.
I love Indycar and have been following for a long time… But, I can’t agree with some of your statements:
The tires are crap: There is a ridiculous high amount of degradation, to the point that 3 stoppers are the norm, if not for the need to refuel, you will hear the drivers complain about them in every race… Since they have to refuel, changing tires isn’t as big of an issue
You can drive closer, but instead of the pathetic DRS, they have the “pathetic” push to pass… Without it, you wouldn’t have as many overtakes as they exist today… DRS and Push to Pass are at the end both driver aids to assist with overtaking, so not a lot different really.
In regards to the Engines, I would argue that Honda has a big advantage, not only in terms of power, but more importantly fuel consumption… The Chevy cars have to do more fuel saving than the Honda ones, so you still have the engine you are using at play in the series.
It’s a great series to watch, I enjoy the races, but I still believe that F1 is superior one.
