Is that what Nick Daman said? If so he's either failing to appreciate, or he doesn't understand how difficult the last 10 years have been, since unification.

Everyone would like to see a return to an open formula, with multiple chassis and engines, like in the CART era. However, there just isn't the money at this stage for an open formula. Hopefully, the new aero-kit will produce the close, competitive racing IndyCar needs, in order to attract the money needed to eventually create a more open series but it won't happen over night.
