For indycar i would soften turn 8 quite a bit and take out the short loop (13-14-15) after the long back straight, changing it into something like yas marina 11-13 to help keep that braking zone pass at turn 12.

for f1, probably just soften up turn 8. it just kills the lap for me. It may be completely awesome for other categories..
Let's hear your thoughts.
They should run the same exact layout as F1. I'd like to see how the two series's stack up.

I think Indy cars have more HP, but weigh more and are less aerodynamic. When Indy cars ran at Montreal they were about 2 seconds a lap slower.

I had to watch the qualy session replay on my phone. Did live tv bleep out Ricciardio's f bomb? The replay was clear as day for helmet speak.

I’m I seeing this right. ABC gets the race. But it’s not going to show it live. But join in an hour into the race. This makes no sense

It was live for me as well (East coast). Well deserved win for Kimi. Classic Iceman post-race interview. I think he might have even said that he wasn't happy!

I'm pulling a Kimi and drinking a Laphroaig.

On another note, Vettel's continuing inability to race at all decently has me longing for LeClerc next year. Man I wish they had signed DRic.

Totalsportek had enough live streams to watch....
