IndyCar » Dixon wins as Dario makes crucial error


Scott Dixon drove a perfect race and was rarely under any threat of failing to win at Motegi ahead of Will Power, but that was drama with a vital mistake by Ganassi team mate Dario Franchitti.

Race was ruined by dreadful officiating - from the start where cars where not lined up correctly to the 'non' penalty for Darios incident.

Helio demotion from 7th to 22nd is laughable and it will be interesting to see the stewards reaction to Helios call for Brian Barnhart to go (and his tweet that BB is a clown).

Surely BB cannot continue with such poor decisions race after race.

Most unfortunate driver of the day must be Sato. JP's lunge up his inside in to the hairpin was more than optomistic, it was downright suicidal. Takuma then fought his way back from 13th up to 9th, and then took another two places at the final restart, only to find Viso parked across his path at turn two.
He, and the legions of Japanese fans who turned out to support him, deserved better.
