Newgarden and Rossi top final IndyCar practice
Newgarden tops final practice
Newgarden tops final practice

Sunday's Iowa Corn 300 is run in the heat of the afternoon Sunday so this cool evening practice session after qualifying Saturday was a total waste of time, especially since the grandstands were empty. The grandstands were empty for qualifying too.  NASCAR owns this track and once they bought it IndyCar attendance has dropped every year. It will eventually lead to the race dying from lack of proper promotion. 

Why isn't this race still run as a night race? The fans will bake tomorrow in the afternoon sun and go home wilted.

Newgarden
Newgarden

Josef Newgarden and Will Power ran 1-2 in practice for the Iowa Corn 300 in their Penske Chevys Saturday morning on a bright sunny day. Newgarden turned a lap of 17.519s to beat Power by 0.0259s.

However, their times were set with a tow and it was Alexander Rossi's lap of 182.223mph with no-tow that was easily fastest on a single run with no help.

Colin Braun
Colin Braun
Building off of last week's contending pace, Watkins Glen pole sitter Colin Braun took the top spot in both of Friday's practice sessions in the CORE autosport LMP2.

Try as they might, the Team Penske Acura DPis could not quite match Braun's pace, with Dane Cameron sitting just 0.037 off of Braun's best lap time of 1:06.902. Cameron's teammates in the #7 improved from the first session to the second, leaping from sixth fastest to third.

Hamilton nips Raikkonen in final British GP practice
Hamilton quickest but what does Vettel have up his sleeve?
Hamilton quickest but what does Vettel have up his sleeve?

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton pipped Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen by just 0.093s to top the timesheets in final practice for the British GP Saturday morning at Silverstone. However, Ferrari's lead driver, Sebastian Vettel, did not make a qualifying simulation run and he's usually faster than Raikkonen so qualifying should be interesting in 2 hours time.

Valtteri Bottas was third quick for Mercedes 0.42s behind his teammate while Vettel was 4th 1.1s back but at race pace, not qualifying pace, and only ran 8 laps.

Hubert shines in sunny Silverstone Race 1

From left, Nikita Mazepin (ART Grand Prix), Anthoine Hubert (ART Grand Prix), Callum Ilott (ART Grand Prix)

Anthoine Hubert cruised to victory in an eventful GP3 Series Race 1 at Silverstone, Great Britain, shrugging off two virtual safety cars and a full safety car period to clinch his second win of the season. Hubert beat his ART Grand Prix teammate Nikita Mazepin by 3.9 seconds, as Callum Ilott completed a podium lockout for the French team.

Getting away from the line on the formation lap, Hubert suffered a slight scare having edged away from his grid slot slowly, but was able to reassume his position at the front of the grid. He kept the lead as the lights went out, keeping Mazepin at bay as Ilott thrust past a slow-starting Giuliano Alesi. Immediately, there was plenty of action at the first corner; Alessio Lorandi stalled, leaving the field to bunch up in avoidance. Juan Manuel Correa attempted to pass Julien Falchero around the outside of turn 1, but the Arden driver had nowhere to go and speared into the side of the American driver - leaving the two to retire.

Renault team walk the wash board circuit
After the highs of a very decent run of eight consecutive finishes in the points culminating in our home Grand Prix in France, Austria was like a crash landing. Although the circuit did not play to our strengths, we must do better. While the race did not go our way, it certainly benefited our rivals, who took advantage of three retirements in the top teams to finish higher than usual in the rankings.

Steve Letarte

NBC NASCAR analyst Steve Letarte for the next two Cup races will "move to the network's pit box, which will be located in the same row as the team pit boxes."

During Saturday's race at Daytona, Letarte will work alone on the pit box as "sort of a middle man between the main booth and NBC's roaming pit reporters."

The NBC box is "very close to the racing surface, potentially bringing a lot of noise into the broadcast when Letarte is on the air." Also new this weekend, Mike Tirico "will be included" in the prerace show. USA TODAY
