Ryan's a useful quick pedaller as showed in a "Penske" at Indy last year. He'll do fine but probably will act as a pacy no 2 to HCN

I hope Indy wasn't a one-off - Penske, and the series in general, really needs him to succeed. He's had a pretty patchy career, but there is obvious pace there.

Personally I think he'll be a revelation. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see him blow Castroneves into the weeds and win the title.

Can't see Kanaan or Castroneves winning it. I think it'll be between Dixon, Wheldon (if he can regain his 05/06 form) and Briscoe.

Kanaan, Dixon or Wheldon for me. They are far and away the class of the field in Indycar.

It does of course depend on the equipment as well.

We'll see - if he can keep it off the concrete for the first few rounds I'll agree. He's quick enough for sure, but you have to question his temperament especially when faced with a difficult car.

He's definitely quick, but 2005 still leaves a question mark for me. A good run at Indy is one thing, but there are some far nastier ovals in Indycar.

He should be a lot better this time around though. Experience is a wonderful thing.

He was desperately over-driving a completely rubbish car in 2005.

With a much better package this year I expect him to win races and maybe even push for the title - big call.

Bear in mind that he was usually as quick as Dixon in difficult circumstances in 2005.

Castroneves is well and truly going to have his work cut out for him to establish himself as the team's number one this year.

Helio has gone seriously off the boil recently, I would have to agree his position in the team is under threat. Last season he spun when he was competitive and finished when he was off the pace. A weird old year and he needs to bounce back.

But if anyone can, Helio can!

Briscoe will do well in the Penske car

No Mystery, Dixon isn't near enough. He is a K1W1

Knowlesy, agree with your pick of Kanaan, Dixon or Wheldon but with Dixon before Kanan, Briscoe following Wheldon. Would be great to see another nail biting finish to this years title.

Raven, don't see him in contention for the title but will be up there

Knowlesy, Helio was on the boil as twinkle toes, will be outside the top 5 this year
