Not sure how that move didn’t have to be re-addressed or even penalized. He just threw it down the inside with every intention of using the other Merc as a brake. It’s pretty clear to see that without the other Merc there, he would have flown off the track. “He didn’t defend the position well” doesn’t really make sense because no one would have with the following car that far back. I don’t have a problem with the contact, rubbin’s racin’ after all, but he shoved the other car so far off the track. It’s ridiculous.

How about an endurance race for alternative powertrains? (Electrics and hydrogen).

Couldn’t help but feel as though Merc got a favorable BOP this year too. Sadly, they likely got it by a bit of sandbagging in earlier events.

FIA World Endurance Championship CEO Gerard Neveu and ACO President Pierre Fillon were among the dignitaries on hand at today’s 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, having been invited as guests to take in the historic running of the race.

Both Neveu and Fillon met with Mark Miles, the President and CEO of Hulman & Company (pictured above), while also making visits with Roger Penske and Chip Ganassi, including a tour of CGR’s Indianapolis headquarters.

“Just like Le Mans, the Indy 500 is a huge event both in terms of its recognition throughout the world and as a sporting occasion for fans, and it’s always really interesting to see how it works,” Neveu said.

The WEC had been in previous talks with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the possibility of a WEC event at the famed speedway. A deal, however, has yet to materialize.

For now, the championship’s primary focus in the U.S. remains at Circuit of The Americas, which will again host the Lone Star Le Mans event in September.

An estimated 400,000 fans were on hand at Indianapolis today for the sold-out race, with the 24 Hours of Le Mans being another one of the world’s largest spectator sporting events.

“In three weeks over 260,000 fans will be gathered at Le Mans in France for the Le Mans 24 Hours and we really look forward to welcoming every one of them for what is likely to be an amazing spectacle on and off track,” Fillon added.

Babe, car are the safest they’ve EVER been. Human error cannot be removed from the sport let alone a bizarre sequence of events. There have been cars doing 150+ down that straight for 30-40 years now with no where near as much traction, ABS etc as is currently on the machines. It is a dangerous sport it S!!t does happen.

I think most of us saw that coming 8 hours into race. The Mercedes dominance was quite boring even the last lap didn’t really make it worth it. Hopefully next year the other brands are closer to the front. If you took Mercedes out it would’ve been a more interesting race. Especially after the M6s kept getting smashed up.
