If IndyCar could host another race overseas where would you want it to be?

For the sake of the question I'll avoid current F1 tracks and imagining distance is not a problem I'd love to see Imola hold a race. Brands Hatch too were it made safe enough

But realistically Watkins Glen is a stunning track and fits all the necessary criteria

For UK viewers who watch IndyCar, it will now be on Sky Sports F1 after BT Sport lost the rights to it.

Genuinely pleased about this. I was concerned that I wouldn't get to watch any live racing this year, as I wouldn't get Sky just for F1 due to a point of principle on pay per view and a lack of exciting racing these days.

But Indycar and F1 means I will stump up

With Indycars now racing at the Circuit of the Americas, for the first time in years we’ve had an almost genuine comparison of the difference between F1 and Indy. As expected the Indycars are around 10 seconds a lap slower as they simply cannot take the corners as fast without the power steering that F1 has. The much cooler temperatures probably had a minor effect too.

It was also interesting to hear Marcus Ericsson talk about how his car was the most difficult machine he’d had to handle in years. And turn 19 saw a lot of drivers struggling to keep the car on track.
Should be an interesting race

I'm going to watch this to give it a chance. If nothing else the chance to watch open wheeled single seaters at Brands is always welcome.

I'm not convinced it is the right way forward to encourage women into the higher levels of the sport but if it brings exciting racing (the likes of which F1 seems incapable of bringing these days) then it'll be worth it

The opening race of the W Series was entertaining enough. Surprisingly brief though but it's May so I'll take as the first in the famous 'Month Of May'

Utterly brilliant race in Indycar tonight. Pagenaud's hunting down of Dixon reminded me of Schumacher on Alesi at the'95 Euro GP. Great stuff

Great to hear that qualifying will be shown for viewers in the UK on the W Series YouTube channel following qualifying being geo-blocked in the first round.

They say there are two types of drivers at Indianapolis, those who have hit the wall and those who will hit the wall.

Hopefully that's his one mistake over the next fortnight

Fernando Alonso is in danger of failing to make the grid for the Indianapolis 500 after setting the 31st fastest time on the first day of qualifying.

The two-time Formula 1 world champion faces a shootout on Sunday with five other drivers for the final three places on the 33-car grid.
