I was skimming through the interview of Hoskote & Naina, and they mentioned that they had a layover in Dallas, which seemed to play a factor why the 2nd set of teams were a lot farther behind than the 1st set. I wonder why it was not shown at all, instead showing as if it was a straight shot from LA to Santiago.
I am also not a fan of the new intro, but I guess I will have to get used to it.
Also, the casting has definitely gone the way of the Asian edition. And who knows, if Phil Simms will get his wish. He did say in one broadcast, that he would like to try out for the race.
