Hm I think there's a bit of confusion between SMP and SPM there?

He was driving for SPM (Schmidt/Petersen Motorsport) in Indycar and one of his sponsors is SMP.

SMP = SMP Racing = SMP Bank = a Russian bank owned/created by Russian Boris Rotenberg.
BR Engineering = Boris Rotenberg.

The Indycar team has nothing to do with SMP/BR. SMP was a personal sponsor of Aleshin, not Schmidt/Petersen.

I stand corrected. Thanks for that.

Aleshin crashed a lot, especially on ovals. Many people won't miss him. But he's a reasnoably good driver to me, and will do great in FIA WEC.

Is Wickens going to fill the empty seat at SPM?

Saavedra replaces Aleshin for next two IndyCar races.

That's Pocono and Gateway, two ovals.

It's been rumored that Robert Wickens, Santiago Urrutia or Esteban Gutiťrrez could take the seat for Watkins Glen and/or Sonoma.
