Sato has probably just fucked Rossi’s championship. Stupid move from him glad everybody is ok

level 2

Yeah, Rossi gotta get lucky and hope Newgarden has a DNF in the next race to keep it alive

Actually starting to hope they don’t sign a new deal with Pocono, after last year this place is too dangerous

level 2

Is it possible they can patch his car up and get him back out?

level 1

I’m at the race. So many people defend the track, and blame the driver instead. Yes, Sato caused it. But, the last two Indycar crashes at this track have resulted in cars going into the fence. The margin of error is too small on this track configuration, compared to the other superspeedways.

level 1

Insane that a 42 year old F1 podium taker and multiple time indycar(and Indy 500!) Race winner caused such a stupid fucking crash while a 21 year old kid who was kicked out of F2 managed to keep his nose clean and make good smart moves. Paul Tracy said on the broadcast that he was suspended for less. Sato, who I’m generally a fan of, has got to be suspended for the rest of the season in my view.

level 1

This circuit needs serious revisions in my opinion. Turn 2 of Pocono is based on turn 1 of Indianapolis and has just 1 racing line, hence why Sato cut across. Problem is turn 1 at Indy is usually a single file corner, overtaking sometimes around the outside. Having a similar turn after a long straight is just asking for trouble on the first lap of a race.

level 2

It should have been revised after the incident with Wickens. Completly stupid with these fences who become death traps once airborne.

Edit: Wickens not Wilson.

level 2

Indianapolis turn 1 has a much bigger straight before it and they too get there in pack at the start.

You can’t blame the track if a driver who’s in a three wide wants to take the corner as if he was alone.

level 1

And this is the repair job to the fence

level 2

The mesh fencing is to protect spectators, of which there are none in Turn 2, from debris. The horizontal cabling is what retains the car. It doesn’t look safe, but what matters is that the cabling is in good condition.

level 1

Rosenqvist was crazy lucky. A couple more inches higher and it could have been just like Wickens last year

level 2

Lucky, but not that lucky. Half a second faster and he would’ve walked out of it scot free.

level 1

Newbie here, don’t quite understand indycar yet. Is there such thing as a penalty for causing a collision?

level 2

The pundits and drivers on TV are talking about a possible suspension.

level 2

yes, avoidable contact is a penalty that can be called, but since he’s out of the race they can’t really do anything about it. it was pretty bad, but it would have to be exceptionally bad for them to suspend him for future races, that is unlikely

level 1

I truly don’t understand why the barriers are barely more than concrete

level 1

“No way to prevent this” says only series where this regularly happens at a certain track

level 2

a) this is not the only track this happens or could happen at

b) this is not the only series where this happens
