IndyCar drivers find rain a real challenge

When it comes to driving in the rain, F1 drivers are the best, but of course they have tire warmers to get heat in their tires. At Mid-Ohio Sunday morning it rained for the IndyCar warm-up session and it was a comedy of errors. Dario Franchitti slid into the tire barrier in Turn 5, Oriol Servia spun in Turn 10, James Hinchcliffe spun in Turn 7, Graham Rahal spun on the front straightaway. and Ed 'I can only turn left' Carpenter spun three times, Turns 2, 4 and 6. Maybe it's time Firestone make an even softer rain tire since IndyCar won't allow tire warmers.
