i believe the race is called "the coke a cola 600" but i'm not certain on that.

Yes, very interesting race as you don't often get red flags in Formula One. Always love the tight street courses like Azerbaijan, Monaco, Abu Dhabi where you almost always get a full course yellow. Was shocked to see Verstappen crash out while in the lead and even more shocked when Hamilton wasn't able to capitalize and finished out of the points. Wish the Haas team could figure things out, would love an American team to be able to successfully race over there.

Also surprised how the different series try to help influence the racing. Nascar throws a yellow flag to get the field grouped back up. Indycar has the Push To Pass button to help facilitate passing. Formula One uses the DRS to help allow the chasing car to get the speed to make a pass.

When I saw my fellow Canuck hit the wall I was thinking "There goes Lance again"...but when Verstappan's left rear did the same thing I felt a little better. It looks like the "James Bond" team is starting to find itself.
Let's leave the Pirelli tires alone-it makes things a lot more "interesting"! :rofl:
