Power dominates while Sato drives the wheels off en route to his first IndyCar podium...

So after everyone played nice for the races opening green flag in Sao Paolo - Will Power once again crushed the competition... As the NBCSN ‘’Boothjockeyz pointed out how infuriating it must be for the ‘Aussie to simply motor away from the competition on primary black sticker tyres vs. ‘Bully-Ray (R. Hunter-Reay) falling behind him on the faster, stickier, gooier alternate ‘Reds; CRIKEYS!

And as much as I enjoyed seein’ Power simply cruise off into the sunset; Whale, at least it didn’t rain down South, eh? I was more intrigued by SFHR’s Joseph Newgarden’s early race pace... Not to mention ‘Taku-san (Takuma Sato) definitely having the drive of the race! As the Japanese pilot drove from P25 to his first-ever Indy Car Series podium with a fine third place finish for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. HELL! ‘Taku even out braked; Err pulled off a fine Kamikaze pass on Dashley LePew (Dario Franchitti) and ‘HULIO (Castroneves) to go from fifth to third in the latter stages of the event.

And how ‘bout that Oriel Servia, eh? Pretty good result for his last time out with the recalcitrant ‘Luddi lump,) Lotus) which reputedly the team had to scramble to repair the motor which had an issue with its oil pan before the race... As Servia finished a fine 11th place, one spot ahead of le ‘Hamburgular, nee Sebastain Bourdais; Yeah, I know that 11th & 12th place finishes usually aren’t anything to crow about; BUTT! I’d like to believe that the Lotus-by-Judd ‘Boyz ‘N Girls are getting stronger each race. Now if we can just have 33-cars for Indy...

  1. SeaBass was such a dominant force in Champ Car- I can't wait to see him in another good car and back out front. I know I know- it's fun to hate on guys like him- I hated on him too (I am a huge Paul Tracy fan), but it's going to be great seeing him here in the US again, and glory glory IndyCar is coming to Houston next year! Still praying for the USGP...
