      Race stopped with Fernando leading. The reason?

      Both drivers incredibly climbed out of their ruined cars and walked away.

      Alonso is out, shitty Honda engine again.

      So close too.

      We don't need another misfiring Honda engine to prove to us that he was the class of the field out there. Bar a bad restart where he got bogged down amongst some also rans he was faultless. Fastest average lap as well.

      Come on Vettel, Hamilton, Verstappen and co...prove yourself in this race like Alonso has!

      When he's trundling around at the back of the f1 field in a sh*t car it's often easy to forget how brilliant he is. The ease with which he transferred his f1 brilliance to Indy has probably led me to believe that he really is the best driver in the world. I sincerely hope other f1 drivers follow his example. They'll be letting themselves down if they don't.

      Now hoping for Takuma Sato to do the business for the rest of the race! Come on Taku!

      First Indy 500 I've seen in full. One of the most enjoyable sporting events I've ever watched. Delighted that a 00s f1 driver in Sato won it. F1 could learn a lot from this event and the current crop of f1 drivers could do worse than follow the example laid down by Alonso.
