Pining on about the minutiae of every form of motor racing is old and tiring, too, don't you think?

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.

100% correct.

And broadrun96 isn't alone with his most recent post. I stopped reading sportscar thread over a year ago and show up there only occasionally. There were too many motorsport-SJW's whining about the 'metaphysics' of GT racing and how everything used to be better.

Probably worth pointing out for those that havenít seen it, Pietro Fittipaldi broke both his legs in a WEC shunt yesterday and will be sidelined for at least 8 weeks, thus missing the 500.

I wonder if Claman de Melo will step back in for a shot or if someone else will take the seat. Hopefully the entry wonít be sidelined already

It depends on where sponsors depend on the driver.

Here's to a full and speedy recovery for Pietro Fittipaldi.

It is unlikely that Coyne would park the car for the Indy 500 as this is one of his full-season entried that competes for the Leaders Circle budget.

The replacement driver, whoever that will turn out to be, will have a chance at a very good result because this is a really good ride. Under the circumstances, maybe Coyne could ask Penske if Montoya would help him out? He would be the obvious choice at this stage, as it is already May and the race is drawing closer.

The last time he raced in the 500 was in 2015, for Dale Coyne, so a possibility.
