The Sunday NBC Sports Honda Indy Toronto video recap

6 Comments

As ever, there were a lot of video tidbits and clips from an IZOD IndyCar Series race weekend, and Sunday’s second race of the Honda Indy Toronto doubleheader was no different. See the clips from Sunday’s race linked below (and Saturday race and post-race clips linked as well).

From the pre-race show, this was INDYCAR president of competition and operations Derrick Walker explaining how and why Dario Franchitti’s post-race penalty issued Saturday was later rescinded.

The focus this week is on the United States Grand Prix from Circuit of The Americas in Austin, but because it’s Tuesday, the Pirelli tire selections for next week’s Mexican Grand Prix are also out.

And for once, there’s a wide variance in selections.

Both Red Bull and Ferrari have gone for a more balanced portion of supersoft and ultrasoft tires, with Red Bull only selecting six sets of ultrasoft tires.

Meanwhile all other teams have gone between eight to 10 sets of ultrasoft tires.

The full breakdown is below.
