He's done well considering and certainly has not been afraid to stand up for what he believes in. Can't say he has done a bad job in that regard

I meant he is from the era of gladiators, self-taught mechanics and trailers.

mstets should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Hulkenberg to ECR?

Guessing that Hulkenberg is the most talented driver who has sat out the bulk of the last two seasons. I think he should have a seat in F1, but it would be great to see him in Indycar next year.

Ricardo Juncos will return to IndyCar this season, partnering with Brad Hollinger.

That is great! Sounds like they will do a few races this season in prep for a full season next year:

No word on drivers, but there are plenty of quality options out there right now.

Great move. We'll see how useful a few outings this year will be for 2022 if at all. We'll see who is available to drive for them, I'm sure there's one or two who would jump at the chance

Think his ride rests somewhat with the Mercedes F1 driver lineup. If Georgie gets moved up to the main team and Bottas is out, Hulk may be the Williams guy. Can't see Williams, without a reduced engine cost deal, wanting Bottas and the hard to overcome I was fired outlook over Hulk and his reported driver feedback level to build the car like Russell has, Latifi likely isn't that guy.

Alex Zanardi Update

Saw an ad for Paralympics and thought of Alex. Sounds like it's not great, but it's something:

Hollinger sounds like someone expecting a financial return for investing some of his Covid-support dollars.

At least he has made some progress, although I fear he won't be able to do any sport ever again

I think about Alex Zanardi at least a couple of times a week. And he always comes to mind whenever I hear anybody say "nevertheless". He is my all-time favourite driver and his story is so sad.

He is not my favourite because of race wins or season championships. He became my favourite before I really even knew who he was. I was in the paddock in Detroit in his rookie year and Alex was nearby. I recognized him as a driver only because of the firesuit. And so I approached him hoping that he'd autograph his page in my program. I was embarrassed because I didn't know who he was, so I couldn't open the book to the proper page. Instead I just handed him the program. Instead of simply signing the cover, or looking directly for his page, he leafed through it with me. As each individual driver's page appeared, he spoke highly of his competitors. I distinctly remember him turning to Greg Moore and mentioning that he would be a great driver. He had nice things to say about everybody. Finally he found his own picture and autographed it for me. (This was the moment that I realized who he was). He must have spent the better part of five minutes talking to me. So kind and so friendly.

I walked away with a new favourite. And this was before he'd won a single race.

Godspeed, Alessandro.
