Lap 2. Turn 7.
I assumed Harto was getting off race line and letting me have entry into corner, As he made a sharp turn to left on exit of T5 to get off racing line, but we made contact going into that corner. CrewChief did say car inside, but as he had no way to make turn with speed, i got it wrong thinking he was letting me by. Both continued on.
Lap 4. Turn 5.
I ran into rear of Harto. He came to a complete stop midcorner and I Just wasnt expecting that speed difference there. I let him back thru, but Cook lost his front Wing in the accordion affect.
Both Incidents I'm at fault.
Anywho, I felt i had good pace. Got my butt kicked in those first 3 turns. Got forced out wide and put myself in situations to ruin race. Thanks Sam for feedback on wheel setting, definitely felt controllable tonight, not the rear end always going opposite of turning like first few rounds ive joined you guys in. See you all later.

Great race, and congratulations to all!... Congrats for the winners!
I'd like to re-post my last comment about blue flag on Indianapolis, and this time it appears very good to me, the blue flag is showed up when the fastest drivers is closer enough for let them pass creating a good conditions to be lapped without loose too much time, and let them pass in a good circumstances and better session of the track.
Thank you and best regards,

I was punished twice with drive thru penalty, because of a blue flag, and I'd like to ask for all who overtaken me on blue flag, if I made you lost time.
I always let me overtaken on a best point of the track, on straights and using DRS... In slow speed curves and on difficult points where reduces the speed could be dangerous for both, I try avoid reduces the speed and keep the normal speed, except if I committed a small mistake, that I will create a dangerous situation, in this case, I just stayed out of the track.

When I see a fasted driver approaching, like and example on this race, I let Argenis Riera overtake me without fight, and I should defend my position, but it would be a nonsense, and I could cause an unnecessary incident, or cause delay for both, or finish the both race, because he would overtake me anyway.
On this bases, I'd like to know how it works, when and how I need to let overtaken me on blue flag to avoid this kind of unfair punishment, if the driver did not lost time.
