Lets see if Dixon can go 3 for 3.

Still too early for fans.

Way too early. Really stupid to have fans there.

Grandstand at turn 1 looked packed. Idiots.

That's why I'm not there. I'd kill for a doubleheader during non plague times.

Hey "start your engines" guy; fans won't be back for long. Talk about tone deaf AF.
 
2020-07-11 5:13:28 PM  
This intro makes them look like just-booted robots.

What's that hose on their helmets for?
 
2020-07-11 5:15:15 PM  
I am not opposed to fans at a road course in theory.  People look way too close and it doesn't look like they limited the entry to the facility all that much. It is outdoors though which seems to minimize the chances to spread.  I hope things go ok, but it doesn't look promising.

Princip's Sandwich: What's that hose on their helmets for?


Trying to keep them cool.  The new aeroscreen means no airflow in the cockit.

Airflow through the helmet

I see. Makes sense.

How do you end up at Williams distance before the green flag even drops? Goddamn.

Hey! Russell made Q2 today.
 
2020-07-11 5:18:57 PM  
Chaos
 
2020-07-11 5:19:10 PM  
I gotta say, them shrieking "That's a rookie!!!1!" is getting really, really old. Especially when they do it for drivers with 5+ years of top-level experience.
 
2020-07-11 5:19:18 PM  
can't believe they didn't go full clownshoes there with the run through the grass

I saw that. I figured some act of God occurred.
 
2020-07-11 5:19:55 PM  
Here's the clownshoes we were expecting a week ago
 
2020-07-11 5:20:14 PM  
Banner race for Rossi and Marco so far....
 
2020-07-11 5:20:15 PM  
That should have been more clownshoes than it actually was
 
2020-07-11 5:20:26 PM  
"He's off again!"

"That's a replay, PT"

Top-notch PTing.

Yeah, it was pouring rain. Qualifying was delayed by 45 minutes.
 
2020-07-11 5:21:16 PM  
He was doing some cleaning work with his front wing.
 
2020-07-11 5:21:52 PM  
Yeesh. Poor Marco.

/are you not entertained?
 
2020-07-11 5:22:52 PM  
Charlie Kimball hit somebody? color me shocked
 
2020-07-11 5:23:08 PM  

NINEv2: Yeesh. Poor Marco.

I firmly believe this is because he hasn't bottled it at Indy yet this year. Clownshoes potential energy. It won't let up until his car croaks at Indy again.
 
2020-07-11 5:23:17 PM  
With the sign repairs, I don't know why you wouldn't take the opportunity to change tires there.  Your strategy is already up in smoke, might as well get both compounds out of the way and hope the cautions maybe bring you back into contention.

Careful. Your blood sugar might spike.
 
2020-07-11 5:24:58 PM  
Three wide a couple times and an outside pass thru the carousel... I hope it continues.
 
2020-07-11 5:25:31 PM  
Why's Rossi in the Firestone ad when he's only won it once? Murica?

As a fan, hell yes. I think some team owners are probably hoping otherwise.  That can get real expensive and there is a race tomorrow.
 
2020-07-11 5:30:10 PM  
Most cars are a second apart now. They're practicing social distancing in case the audience isn't.
 
2020-07-11 5:30:40 PM  
Marco has the Latifi Prize for already being 90 seconds back.
 
2020-07-11 5:31:23 PM  
Oh shiat. Belated good luck to Mr Severn and RLL.
 
2020-07-11 5:35:11 PM  
They're all drunk, right?  Would explain a lot.
 
2020-07-11 5:35:54 PM  

Princip's Sandwich: Marco has the Latifi Prize for already being 90 seconds back.


At least it's not the Haas Prize for having the same mechanical failure over and over
 
2020-07-11 5:36:17 PM  
God damn I miss my track.
 
2020-07-11 5:36:19 PM

Grosjean got to play with sand though. That's a plus.

That's nothing to brag about Diffey

Say what, 2% with masks?
 
2020-07-11 5:43:19 PM  
His car's too greedy.
 
2020-07-11 5:43:23 PM  
well that was a good race for Rahal...
 
2020-07-11 5:43:38 PM  
Bummer Graham
 
2020-07-11 5:43:40 PM  
It happens to a lot of guys
 
2020-07-11 5:43:59 PM  
Suuuuuucks for Graham.

If they're lucky. O/U 1,000 fans there having COVID within 2 weeks
