Video Monday - They Think It's All Over...

The Indianapolis 500, the self-proclaimed "greatest spectacle in racing" (although frankly F1 cars at Monaco make for a much greater spectacle despite the general lack of overtaking IMHO) and part of motorsport's "Triple Crown" along with the LM24 and the Monaco GP, has seen plenty of action in its 101-year history. Even last year, when a rookie was all set to win, he let go of it at the very last corner of the 500-mile race when he ran wide to pass a backmarker and slammed into the wall, allowing Dan Wheldon through to take the win. This year, it was similarly dramatic in the closing stages, as former BAR-Honda/Super Aguri F1 driver Takuma Sato tried pulling a cheeky move on Dario Franchitti at the 796th of 800 left turns.
