This time they all stayed in touch, swapping places every lap. As I said, when passing is this cheap, it doesn't really feel like racing.
I assume it's the new formula, although I don't remember last year being this bad. It stretches credulity to believe that so many teams prepared cars with identical performance. I'm not sure if IndyCar thinks it's a problem or not. We'll see, I guess.
Judging by the fans reaction, I don't think anyone at IMS will see it as a problem.
