INDYCAR: Promising Start for Carlin's New charge'



Yes Siree Daddy Oh', I'm fully cognizant of the Fact that One race Doesn't Make an IndyCar career. Whale', Otay it's actually two but, Nevertheless I'm just so G-Damn Happy that Mexico's Patricio Pato' O'Ward's Back in his Rightful place, upon thou Indy Cars Grid.

As I've mentioned before here on No Fenders, I'm torn between Thee Uber' Quick Swede Felix rosenqvist and O'Ward for whom to choose as my newest Numero Uno IndyCar Driver? As I really like both of these Cats; Err Young HotSchues!

Yet although I cannot put my finger upon it, O'Ward just seems to have the Chutzpah of a Blooming Superstar talent to Mwah, even if I must begrudgingly admit Colton Herta's No Slouch behind the wheel either, who was Pato's former team-mate.


Although it's worth noting, as the NBC Sportscasters continue Fawning over Americres' Herta. Colton's had the benefit of going to Spring Training this year, along with contesting an extra race vs. O'Ward...

Then come Race Day, Thee Talkin' Headz' finally started giving Pato his due, along with finally admitting what I'd been Screaming to Thyself all weekend long. That the Harding Steinbrenner Racing Team is essentially a Satellite Andretti Autosport ride! Even if Leigh Diffey tried Spinning It off as only a "Technical Alliance," which Wink-wink, Nudge-Nudge, technically it is...

As think it was good 'Ol PT', nee Paul Tracy who mused that it was effectively Andretti Autosport Cars running 2-3-4 during the race when alluding to Alexander Rossi, Herta and Ryan Hunter-Reay following Will Power...

And N-O Pressure upon the young Mexican, as may be it was Max Chilton, O'Wards Carlin team-mate noting how Pato had 400 Friends 'N Family (Guests) Unhand for the IndyCar event at COTA.

With the Brit' musing Thars' a lot of Mexicans there when talking to NBC Sports Pitlane Reporter Kelli Stavast, after missing out on advancing to the Top-12 Qualie' round; Ariva-Ariva-Ariva!


Although during Sunday's TV Broadcast they mentioned it was 120 Strong Guests rootin' for the Mexican teenager...

O'Ward surely must have been pleased with his Qualifying results, finishing P8, just precious tenths, or was it hundreds? Of a Second from advancing to the Fast Six shootout, and rolling off the outside of Row-4 alongside current points leader Josef Newgarden.

Then a strange thing occurred on Race Day, suddenly the NBC Sports Gang finally took notice of how impressive Pato O'Ward's first weekend back in an IndyCar was! Even though they were still tripping over each other about Colton Herta, whom contrary to what (Townsend) T-Bell' said, Colton was indeed Lucky to inherit the Lead of the race courtesy of a fortuitous Yellow Flag being thrown at the perfect moment, after falling behind second place Rossi by some 14 seconds...

But for Mwah, if Y'all haven't caught on by now? I was far more impressed with O'Ward's performance, especially his scintillating Duel with Thee Graminator', nee Graham Rahal, whom the Mexican said Excuse Me, Playing Thru! Which was when the Booth boyz' sat up and took notice of Pato, with T-Bell' saying loudly, HELLO!

Not sure what Blighted Pato's Pit stop, i.e.; Driver error or Crew error? Whilst apparently he faltered at the end of the race. Since I believe he was P6 on the final restart, but then was not only passed by Marco Andretti, who finished sixth. But also Taku-san', nee Takuma Sato nipped by to finish seventh, with O'Ward coming home P8, ironically where he started.

With runner-up Josef Newgarden saying it most succinctly during his Post-race interview, when congratulating Colton Herta and the Harding Andretti team on their first IndyCar victory...
