Most surprised with Danica Patrick 4 th place the race it self looks more a lottery ,happy with 9 th place from Bobby D after starting in 15 th place , did not see the Quali. bud I did hear the team did not a good job ?

So up to the Oval's next weekend.

Some really awful driving this weekend to be honest. So many cautions. And I hate how many commercial breaks Versus have.

Danica ran really well once she got up with the lead pack. Stupid mistake from Briscoe, what was he doing?!

Good job from our Dutch rookie! Finally a weekend without any (small) problems. The NHL car seems to have a good setup, but still impressive to be on the front row in your very first oval-race.

I hope TK takes it this year. He is worth it. But would be good for the sport if Rahal wins as he seems to become their (USA) new big star.

Graham needs to put his qualifying pace into race pace. It will come with experience.

Bizarrely Marco Andretti is the other way around despite being young and inexperienced too.

Dixon or TK have to be favourites for this. Perhaps Briscoe or Castroneves too.

Robert Doornbos Third Quickest in ROP test

Robert Doornbos, No. 06 Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing Dallara/Honda/Firestone: “It’s great to come here and drive the right way around the track after running here in 2005 and 2006 in Formula One. I definitely respect this place; the speeds are quite high and it is definitely impressive here. I’m living it up at this moment. I took some laps around the track last night in a Pace Car with Arie Luyendyk, who is sort of my coach this month. He showed me where to go, where to put the wheels. He observed my style in Kansas and said I was smooth which is how he drove his information has been very helpful. The team has been working hard and I think it shows. I’m learning really fast and I will take all of the assistance I can get. We got up to speed quick and I think we can be quite happy with that. I sense more of a European feeling from the track here. There are very long fast straights and fast corners. It’s different. I love it!”

• FAST FACTS: Will be his first Indy 500 and third time to drive on this track after running here in the 2005 (Jordan GP test/Friday driver) and 2006 (Red Bull Racing) Formula One events….The Indy 500 will be his second-ever start on an oval. Qualified second in his oval debut in Kansas…Has competed against fellow ICS drivers Marco Andretti (A1GP), Danica Patrick (Formula Ford), Ryan Briscoe (F3) and E.J. Viso (F3000)…Two-time Indy 500 winner and fellow Dutchman Arie Luyendyk is serving as an advisor to Doornbos. Luyendyk won the 500 in 1990 and 1997 and is the only driver from the Netherlands to win the Indy 500 to date…Leads the Rookie of the Year standings.
