IndyCar has announced changes to its push-to-pass power boost system for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio, in an attempt to make it harder to use the system to defend.

Not bragging but I did comment on the original story where the return of push-to-pass was announced and pointed out that when it was previously used it didn't work very well as the defender used it too and this resulted in a stalemate.

Kind of weird than an Armchair Joe like me can figure this out where as the Pro's at Indycar seem surprised that it happened.

This latest change is practically useless too. Most circuits only have one or two viable overtaking points so the defender can surely predict when it will be used and also activate it whilst braking for the corner that leads to the passing straight.

I don't see this change working on a circuit like Mid-Ohio. It has lots of corners one after other and two obvious overtaking spots, so the one front can guess when the other will use it and press the button 5 seconds earlier.
