  • If Wickens gets an opportunity down the line to return to racing with the team then he has to look after himself and take it

    Zak Brown has seriously gone down in my estimation over the treatment of Hinchcliffe, everyone knows it's due to fall-out of the McLaren/Honda F1 split and nothing like juvenile point-scoring than having Honda's star of their TV commercials binned without a drive, they should have been adding a third full-time car for Hinch if they were serious about competing with Penske/Andretti/Ganassi next season. I hope they fail

    Great news about Penske buying IMS and the Indycar series, couldn't be in any safer hands to take things forward




  • Sebastian Bourdais has left Dale Coyne racing - initially reported as being due to sponsorship issues. ...but now it appears that Honda pulled the plug on Bourdais as he didn't score them any manufacturer's points.

    This would appear to open the seat for Hinch.....

    Which everyone is claiming is a bullshít excuse. His car was ineligible for the last four races of the season because he had to go to a fifth engine, and in several races he was the third or fourth best Honda (especially Barber, where he finished P3 on an all-Honda podium).

    Not to mention it's a lot harder to score manu points when your team has 13 cars, versus 9.

    Plus, why isn't Veach getting pulled? He scored no points all year, and that's despite being eligible for them in all races.

    Veach is 24, Seb is 40, that's why.




  • If you've got nothing to do this evening, there's another four hours of testing going on right now :pac:

  • One week to St. Pete !

    Rumours abounding about Nascar legend #48 Jimmy Johnson who is to test for McLaren at Barber AND the news that McLaren have acquired the right to use #48 in Indycar. ...




  • St Pete has been cancelled along with the first four races of the season.

    Same weird strategy as F1, yesterday no attendance today cancelled. :mad:




  • It's the right thing to do, as much as I hate it. We have to be careful and get past this virus. I don't want to see anybody lose their lives to it.

    Totally agree, so pick a strategy and stick with it. No left, right maybe

  • I have race day tickets for the Indy 500. Flights and accommodation all booked as well. I’d say there’s no hope.

    If everybody does the right thing and protects themselves then we can be clear of it all in six weeks.

    Looking at champions League, people were not allowed into the stadium so thousands gathered outside. Not gonna over anytime soon




  • It might be a bit simulated and a bit virtual, but we finally had some IndyCar racing earlier tonight :P





  • It was ok, not as good as the Nascar but better than nothing. If they had shots of the drivers and their set ups at home it would have been more interesting.
    I seen Jimmy Johnson's last Sunday, set up like an indycar for the Nascar race. Looks like he is moving to indycar next year.




  • Now confirmed by Zak Brown (McLaren ) that a test is being lined up for Jimmy Johnson.
    More surprisingly is the news that Jenson Button us due to test an Indycar with a view to competing on a road course.

    The other piece of news emerging is that Alonso is/was scheduled to run the Indy road course race - the " was "is the race has been deferred ,the "is " is that the plan remains unchanged for the rescheduled race in July

    I think Jenson would be competitive in an indycar. Have to wonder is it an attempt to get Honda on side given his links to Honda?
