Welcome to the central discussion thread for the second round of the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series at the Circuit of the Americas.
For the first time in a very long time, modern IndyCar travels to a current Formula One Grand Prix venue as the series makes its debut at the Circuit of the Americas venue in Austin, a reasonably new Tilke designed facility that debuts on the IndyCar schedule this year.
After an enthralling race last time out at St. Pete, the field will once again reconvene to do battle on another impressive circuit, swapping out the tight and twisty turns of the St. Pete street circuit for the open corners and long straights of COTA - should be a great place for the action to unfold on Sunday.
Can some of the big names who fell last time out make up for lost ground? Will the rookies impress again? How will IndyCar laptimes compare to their Grand Prix counterparts?
Whatever happens, it should be fun!
