The Wheldon memorial articles on Racer are brilliant. Some of Marshall's finest work. Marco Andretti I think is childless there is no next generation of Andrettis coming up. Enter Oliver and Sebastain. So the Wheldon boys appears to be filling that gap. Brilliant move for Andretti Autosport to be supporting them.

I don't understand the Graham hate. In the past seven seasons he has never finished lower than tenth in the championship and in five of those seasons he's been in the top seven. Those results coming in probably the most competitive years in Indy car history, and driving for a team that has been 4th or 5th best most of those years. I would guess that he passed more cars on track last season than any other driver. When the car suits him he is capable of winning at any type of circuit.

The test is at his request and therefore sounds very much like it's a one off.

Rahal finished 7th in points, and his loose wheel at the Indy 500 took him many points.

Interesting comment by Nico saying he wants to see if he likes the atmosphere of Indycar. I'm guessing testing atmosphere is different from race atmosphere, but maybe trying to get a feel for teams preparedness?

Yes, he surely would have been in the top 5 if he'd kept running at the same pace and very likely could have won. He got 11 points at the 500 and fifth was worth 66 points. Graham routinely admits to his errors, even claiming some responsibility for the wheel coming loose - as he evidently left the pit box without a signal from the front wheel man. In a routine stop when the car hits the ground it's time to go, so it's hard to fault him on that.

I think that he is underrated and underemployed. Good to see that he is interested in Indycar. No idea if he brings any sponsorship, but Coyne has a couple of seats open......

I couldn't agree more with Alonso there, for me Indycar is on a par with F1 and therefore should be recognised as such by the superlicence points

After all he has raced in F1, IndyCar and WEC.

However, I don't think that is just the issue with awarding Super License points. I think the issue may also arise because IndyCar does not come under the auspices of the FIA.

ACCUS, the Automobile Competition Committee for the United States, is an umbrella organization of the various racing sanctioning bodies in the United States, which includes IndyCar, IMSA and NASCAR. ACCUS is the official liaison of those sanctioning bodies to the FIA. Maybe IndyCar needs closer affiliation with the FIA?
