INDYCAR IN CANADA

JOSEF NEWGARDEN

This was certainly a topsy-turvy race. Check out to highlight video which will explain it better than I can. Josef Newgarden was the winner and it was his second time in the last couple of years. In second place a very happy Alexander Rossi. James Hitchcliffe rolled into third.

Ed Carpenter's team finished 13th and 18th. Takuma Sato - 16th, Tony Kanaan - 18th and Ed Jones - 20th, but out of the race on lap 75.

FORMULA 'E' IN NEW YORK CITY - RACE TWO

SAM BIRD

Sam Bird was lucky enough to win both races in New York. Beautiful weather with plenty of people watching. Felix Rosenqvist came in second and I was very happy to have Nick Heidfeld come in third. He has a lot of Formula One under his belt.

Prost - 6th, Vergne - 8th, Piquet - 16th. Off to two races in Montreal at the end of the month.

FORMULA ONE IN ENGLAND

LEWIS HAMILTON

Lewis Hamilton is not my favorite driver, but the man can sure drive. Each race he is breaking new records....some as old as 60 years, 40 years and 25 years. Just in this race alone. In pole position he was off to never look back. Winning his home Grand Prix. His teammate, Valtteri Bottas, came in second which happens all too often. Third went to Kimi Raikkonen who is breaking some records of his own.

Nico Hulkenberg did a fantastic job of holding sixth place. Massa finished tenth and the Haas Team finished 12th and 13th.

FORMULA 'E' IN NEW YORK CITY - RACE ONE

SAM BIRD

After a week of continuous computer problems I am finally back online. I finally ran into Formula E again. They have such a weird schedule that I kept missing them. This week was their maiden trip into New York City. Surprising that there were so many people there. This series might make it in spite of themselves. They have several drivers that I like pretty well....the ones that have been pushed out of Formula One for one reason or another. Nick Heidfeld, Prost, Vergne and Piquet. The cars are nice looking with good color combinations. The teams are owned by car and tractor manufactures, some former racecar drivers and some team owners from other series.

First place went to Sam Bird who has raced in every race since Formula E began three years ago. Second place went to Jean-Eric Vergne who came from the Toro Roso Red Bull Team in Formula One. Stephane Sarrazin came in third.

INDYCAR IN IOWA

HILDEBRAND, CASTRONEVES AND HUNTER-REAY

Just like in 'Field of Dreams,' build it and they will come. Push the corn stalks aside and "poof" there it is. A small oval that reminds you of the tracks in the 50's at only 7/8 of a mile. Just turn left and keep on turning. It was the 30th win for Helio Castroneves and this is going to be his retirement year. Well, at least for Indycar and everyone will be sorry to see him go. Happy, friendly and extremely poplar guy that will be missed. It seems amazing to me that this was the first time the Penske team has won here. J.R. Hilldebrand, from my current favorite team, came in second. Ryan Hunter-Reay coasted into third.

Tony Kanaan came in 9th and Takuma Sato was 16th. Ed Carpenter, also from my favorite team, came in 12th. Rookie Ed Jones, who I have been watching, came in 18th.

FORMULA ONE IN AUSTRIA

VETTEL, BOTTAS AND RICCIARDO

I like this old Formula One track. The race today lacked the excitement of Azerbaijan two weeks ago. Bottas collected his second Formula One win right from the pole position. Vettel came in second and, of course, claiming that if the race was a little longer he would have won. Maybe so. Daniel Ricciardo came in third and is doing quite nicely in the points with his podium (five times this season) finish consistency.  No surprises with 4th and 5th, but what is surprising is the rest of the top ten. Sixth place went to Romain Grosjean of the Haas Team which is something special for the team. Seventh and eighth went to the Force India team who have really been doing good this year. Ninth and tenth went to the Williams team with Massa in 9th.

Nico Hulkenberg had a rough day again and ended up in 13th and the other Haas car did not finish.

INDYCAR IN WISCONSIN

Another beautiful track, half a world away. Road America winding its way through the countyside instead of a city. I am happy that both Formula One and Indycar had today's tracks return this year.
The winner here today was Scott Dixon. He was chased into that win by Josef Newgarden who was only 0.5779 of a second behind him. Third went to Helio Castroneves.

Both Takuma Sato and Tony Kanaan crashed out on the same turn in laps 44 and 54. The Ed Carpenter cars finished in 12th and 16th. The high-flying rookie, Ed Jones, finished in 7th.

FORMULA ONE IN AZERBAIJAN

A great track through a beautiful city. This race today was just nuts. The short version is that we had new podium finishers away from the usual suspects. The winner was Daniel Ricciardo. Second went to Valtteri Bottas after just inching out Lance Stroll. Bottas drove a great race to come from the very back....not just the back, but a lap down at the back. Stroll is going to be the new teenage wonder boy.

Massa and Hulkenberg were given 16th and 17th places, but they were both out. The Haas Team finished 7th and 13th.

Vettel returned to his former whiny, childish self today. I  am not into penalties because I think that they are too harsh considering it is a race and anything can happen. Vettel got mad at Hamilton and intentionally turned into him. These guys are not driving NASCAR....not only that it was done on a safety car lap. They only made him sit out 10 seconds....I think they should have finished his race.

Below is an article by Valentin Khorounzhiy (pronounce it if you can) from motorsport.com giving an idea just how crazy it all was. Quite frankly, I was exhausted by lap 23.
*********

Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo emerged a shock winner in a remarkably chaotic Azerbaijan GP, punctuated by a huge flare-up in the rivalry between title rivals Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton and Vettel had an on-track run-in while the race was neutralised, which yielded a penalty for the latter – but a loose headrest denied Hamilton what could've been a comfortable cruise to victory.
This left Ricciardo, who qualified 10th and looked well and truly out of contention after stopping early to have debris cleared out of a brake duct, in position to take his fifth grand prix victory.
The Aussie headed home Valtteri Bottas and Williams rookie Lance Stroll, the latter picking up a maiden podium just two weeks on after scoring his first points in F1 with a ninth-place finish in Montreal.
Bottas had run a lap down after a collision with Kimi Raikkonen – but allowed to unlap himself during one of the race's many interruptions. Chaos ahead allowed him to find his way into third, and he reeled in Stroll, beating him to the chequered flag by a tenth to claim runner-up.
At the start, the Mercedes drivers had maintained a 1-2, but Bottas suffered wheelspin coming out of the first corner, allowing Raikkonen to enter the left-hander Turn 2 alongside him.
Bottas kept to the inside line, bouncing off the kerb and understeering into his compatriot, with the contact sending Raikkonen into the outside wall.
The Ferrari appeared unscathed at first, although Raikkonen did slip behind Vettel, Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen, whereas Bottas was forced to crawl to the pits with a right-front issue and rejoined a lap down.
The gap between leaders Hamilton and Vettel ebbed and flowed during the first stint, with the Brit ahead by over three seconds when the race was neutralised by a safety car for the first time.
The culprit was Daniil Kvyat, who had earlier run wide at Turn 1 at the start and rejoined sharply, with Toro Rosso teammate Carlos Sainz spinning as a result.
While Sainz dropped to the back, Kvyat had carried on, but what appeared a a technical issue left him stranded exiting the castle section on lap 11.
Shortly thereafter, it was also race over for another Renault-engined car in the Red Bull of Verstappen, who was pressuring Perez for third before radioing in a power unit issue and retiring in the pits.
The safety car, which lasted for several laps and allowed all the leading runners to swap their supersofts for softs, was back in on lap 16 – with Hamilton speeding up early on the main straight and immediately establishing a lead over Vettel.
The German even came under pressure from Perez, but saw off the Mexican's attack by braking later on the inside of Turn 1, while teammate Raikkonen fell prey to both Felipe Massa and Esteban Ocon, who shuffled him down to sixth.
Immediately, the race was suspended again due to debris in several parts of the circuit, and another chaotic restart followed a few laps later.
First, Vettel made contact with the rear of Hamilton's car as the Briton tried to back the pack up for the restart. The German was irate, pulling alongside Hamilton and gesticulating at his rival on exit of Turn 15 – as his Ferrari whacked against the side of the Mercedes.
Vettel, his front wing damaged in the initial contact, then had to fend off Massa and Perez into Turn 1, although kept position successfully again. Instead, there was drama for the Force Indias, as Ocon tried to edge past Perez on exit of Turn 2, but ended up squeezing his teammate too close to the wall, which resulted in contact.
The chaos was followed by another debris-caused safety car, and the red flags were soon thrown out. Perez looked to have retired in the pits – as did Raikkonen, whose right-rear tyre came apart – but both were allowed to rejoin, albeit a lap down, after the 20-minute stoppage.
At the restart, Hamilton and Vettel – back on supersofts - maintained position with relative ease, as Ricciardo passed both Stroll and Massa, the latter forced into retirement due to a broken rear damper shortly afterwards.
The Aussie's overtakes proved crucial shortly thereafter, as the two drivers ahead of him had to visit the pits. Vettel, having served a 10-second stop-and-go, rejoined right ahead of Hamilton, who had had a loose headrest fixed.
Vettel and Hamilton ran in tandem through the midfield for the rest of the race but could do no better than fourth and fifth respectively, having caught up to the Stroll-Bottas battle on the final lap.
Ocon and Haas driver Magnussen had both run in a podium position after the red flag, but had to do with sixth and seventh in the end.
Sainz recovered to eighth, with Fernando Alonso scoring McLaren'sfirst points of the season in ninth.
The Sauber of Pascal Wehrlein took 10th. Wehrlein ran behind teammate Marcus Ericsson for much of the race, and their battle even yielded contact, but the team appeared to order the German ahead of the Swede amid the lingering threat of McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne – who came home 12th.
Romain Grosjean was a lap down in 13th, with Raikkonen classified 14th and Perez retiring after another visit to the pits.
Renault drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Jolyon Palmer were both among the retirements, with Palmer pulling into the pits early on with an issue and Hulkenberg demolishing his right-front suspension at Turn 7.
