I would like to see another chassis manufacturer but I doubt it. If another chassis manufacturer were to come along, what proportion of the field would they need to supply to be profitable and recover R&D costs?

However, if it does come down to one manufacturer, I would like to see some variation, depending on which engine a team is using but nothing quite as radical as the aero-kits, that were used recently. Something more on the lines of Lola's bid, back in 2010.

If they do open it up to other chassis manufacturers, I hope they don't do what the Iconic committee did back in 2010 and just give it to Dallara. There were some better concepts than theirs. Particularaly Lola's with their universal tub, which could be used for both IndyCar and Indy Lights.

That is definitely a better future plan for Indy, a combo chassis that is something teams can use for over 5 years. I know it's not F1 and chassis of the year but Indycar can't afford to follow that path.

And a combo chassis could actually allow a real bump day with Lights teams pushing each other to make 'the big show' or make a race in a sponsor specific market.
