Just because you can,

That was a good race. It was good to see that pass happen without the artificial push to pass either.

Now on to the big one. Hope the present rules will enable the cars to stay close enough to have some real passing there too.

Qualifying for the last row should be interesting. I doubt anyone would have predicted the participants a week ago.
The weather makes it look like it could be postponed until tomorrow so the top spots will be determined from the Saturday runs.

McLaren and Alonso may well miss the show. From what I've read, they showed up thinking they'd be competitive based on name only, they were not close to prepared. Not out yet but as Alonso said, unlikely they'll find the speed they need over night.

McLaren promptly fired the Indy Team boss. That’s embarrassing.

That's what happens when you go cheap trying to get in the Indy 500. I'm pretty sure Alonso is relieved that he didn't qualify so he doesn't have to drive 500 miles in a car that can't win.

Something tells me they should have read the Indy GP to help get a better feel for the car. At least they probably wouldn't have wasted hours of practice time looking for an electrical fault.

McLaren did so many things wrong. Alonso had tagged the wall and they didn't have a backup car ready. As I understand, it needed a paint job and they'd been told a week before to get that done, didn't do it.

And yeah, I'd also bet Alonso is relieved. Not for having to drive 500 miles in an inferior car but rather for however many he could drive and keep it and himself in one piece. Five hundred miles were never going to happen.
