Fox’ Daytona 500 pole qualifying yesterday afternoon drew a 1.2 overnight, down from a 1.4. Does anyone really want to watch single car qualifying on an oval. Talk about boring.

Just after that telecast, FS1 drew a 1.4 overnight for the Advance Auto Parts Clash, up from a 1.3 last year.

Driving in his debut event for Stewart-Haas Racing last year, Aric Almirola had the lead roughly a mile from the finish line.

But as he approached Turn 3 at Daytona International Speedway and tried to block a run by Austin Dillon, contact between Dillon’s No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Almirola’s No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustang sent Almirola into the outside wall and Dillon into Victory Lane. 

Under the circumstances, Almirola was extraordinarily gracious after the fact, defusing what could have been a volatile situation between the two drivers.

Ericsson finds IndyCars harder to drive than F1 cars
Marcus Ericsson finding IndyCars a handful
Marcus Ericsson finding IndyCars a handful
As readers of AutoRacing1.com know we have long maintained that F1 is an engineering exercise first and foremost. As such engineers win races in F1, not drivers and the car is 99% of the equation and the driver 1%. Hence winning the F1 World Driving title does not mean you are the best driver, just that you are driving the best car and you beat your teammate.

Former F1 driver Marcus Ericsson, now driving an IndyCar and preparing for his first year in the American-based series is finding out that driving talent matters in IndyCar.
