@Julie So, since F1 makes terrible calls on a weekly basis than it's ok for IndyCar to do the same? That is what you just said right? Sorry, but it is not acceptable to be inconsistant with calls and rulings. What separates a racing incident from avoidable contact? A racing incident is when 2 or more people are racing hard that so happen to make contact. Racing incidents are what mostly happen. "Avoidable contact" is when someone makes a bonehead attempt to over take or defend their positon. Take the example you used in your first post. If you can use the term "dive bomb" to discribe Marco's or any driver's move than 20 out of 20 times it was avoidable and driver error. If someone tries to pass coming from 3 car lenghts back, sideways with tires squaling, dive bombing with caution to the wind, and you can see a mile away that they have no hope pulling off the pass than that's avoidable. Who makes that determination? Race Coontrol. That's why they are called "Race Control".
