Some big drops in MP's Silly Season update this afternoon.

Pagenaud to MSR to partner with Helio

Penske open to everything with his seat including downsizing

Grosjean is open to returned to DCR but likely to Andretti

RHR may be out at Andretti and over to ECR as Ed's road course guy with Mr Mullet on the outs.

https://racer.com/2021/08/11/pruett-...ate-august-11/

RM also thinks Sato to MSR for Indy program and RHR to IMSA only as DHL is done. Sounds like he thinks Penske will return to 3 cars fulltime.

Thinking out loud...
Teams might be more apt to reduce from four cars to three, (3 to 2, ect) when they lose sponsorship money. If a team is able to secure deals with primary sponsors, they're going to run said-many cars.

Guess marketing guys would call this a win and growth on growth, 28 car field for Indy Big Machine weekend. Only a non-race at Vegas (34) and race at Kentucky (29) drew more in the last decade, Indy 500 excluded of course.

Standings after Nashville:

1. ESP Álex Palou (Ganassi Honda), 410
2. NZL Scott Dixon (Ganassi Honda), 368
3. MEX Patrico O'Ward (McLaren SP Chevrolet), 362
4. USA Josef Newgarden (Penske Chevrolet), 335
5. SWE Marcus Ericsson (Ganassi Honda), 331

Will the Ganassi drivers help each other, or will they fight each other?

Can the Chevrolet drivers do a miracle?

So with Lundgaard's inpressive debut, I guess we can add him to the drive hunting list for '22?

Who will pay for it though? Some Alpine or their partners stumping up, or can he raise a budget separately?

Might tee Magnussen off to have another quick (and younger) Dane competing for a ride!

Alex Albon might be another looking for a berth. Presumably still with Red Bull backing.

If Lungaard continues running well in F2 I could see them wanting him to get other experience while waiting for Alonso to move on again.

I thought Albon was looking outside of Red Bull money involvement. The bosses haven't been exactly speaking fondly of Indy in the past, and think they said if he was in the US it wouldn't be on their dime.

Lundgaard I'm sure still has his sights set on F1, but at least now he knows he's got a good back up if he doesn't make it. Based on his performance last weekend I'm sure plenty of Indycar teams wouldn't need asking twice should he approach them for a drive

It was a fun race to watch, such a short track and if there were green flag stops you could go a couple laps down! I would love to be there in person to see the madness!

Madness indeed. An average lap time of 18 seconds.

I think it's likely that Lundgaard's looking at the USA because Oscar Piastri is becoming the Renault favoured youngster?

Oscar was out testing a 2 yr old F1 car at Monza last week.
