Sam should have gotten out of the way! He was 3 laps down, what was it going to do?!?! Scott would have won the race if it wouldn't have been for Sam being stupid. Imagine if it would have been Scott infront of Sam and Helio. Sam would have been just as angry as Scott was. Good for Scott though in keeping his frustration in. Dan was turning the fastest laps the last half of the race!

Interesting insight my friend........
Perhaps Sharp will get payback.

Yes, Hornish should have moved over. I understand he didn't want to go another lap down, but at that stage of the race, what difference would it have made. All he did was give Franchitti a bigger lead in the points race.
