    This should be a new paradigm for HOW MANUFACTURERS SHOULD COMPETE in motorsport. Different manufacturers should come up with new ideas, and the best – winning – ideas should be implemented in the cars.

    Step A. Stop crashing. Step B. Let go of the wheel when you know you have failed. Step C. If all else fails, employ a better driver.

    Stupid comment, when i did Speedway, on a dirt track, 1/4 mile..

    Good ideas

    Love it! What a perfect solution that doesn’t ruin the mechanical steering!

    Also how could any one down vote this?!?

    A great way to further protect the driver without taking away from the physicality of the car.

    This is so cool! I love these tech videos

    Nice !

    IndyCar really is the pinnacle of single seater racing at the moment.

    Indycar absolutely rocks, this is insane, I remember how many drivers had wrist injuries (Gil, Tony, a lot of them). Thanks, Prof. B.

    Did someone say director *Jeff Gordon*?

  16. Therius Oktavario on August 12, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    is F1 and other single-seater formula racing series also use prototype steering damper?

  17. xtlm on August 12, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    Very cool, I just hope the arms don’t snap on minor collisions where the wheel may jerk. DNF’s for minor incidents would stink.

  18. PeatCowman on August 12, 2020 at 2:59 pm

    Hey Indycar, are these on the cars this year?

  19. Niels Heusinkveld on August 12, 2020 at 2:59 pm

    Somebody with a damaged hand accidentally pressed dislike..

  20. Stoppahpowah on August 12, 2020 at 3:01 pm

    Very smart. Love these segments, indycar.

    Was this not implemented for St. Pete?

    How did Ed Jones break his hand?

  22. heat cliff on August 12, 2020 at 3:03 pm

    the steering need to be done by legs while the hands control throttle and brakes. Moahahajanauhrtr5&#=&:%#$3*&.-🔼💓😣💩🔯👍♈💹💹💌🐂🚶🐘💩💞🔯💞⚡💪💌💌

    What a genius solution while still keeping it fully mechanical without power steering. The obvious answer would have been a drive by wire system that disconnected the steering linkages from the wheel but that would have changed one of the things that makes IndyCar great.

  24. Chris Mckenna on August 12, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    Thats genius

  25. Brent Tnerb on August 12, 2020 at 3:19 pm

    Danica became an expert at taking her hands off the wheel.

  26. David C. Pierce on August 12, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    Impressive. And very much needed!

  27. Rhayr Harry on August 12, 2020 at 3:24 pm

    Great stuff. No one likes a mushed up hands. How about f1?
