Big John has his faults but has always been devastatingly fast.

He has the tools to dominate in the US if he gets his brain the right place.

He was subject to a fair amount of criticism for his on track antics in F1 and he has shown a tendency to revert to that, since coming to IndyCar. The most recent example was the argy bargy with Jimmie Johnson at the Cork Screw at Laguna Seca last weekend. He doesn't need to do that.

And as widely rumoured... Pagenaud to MSR next season:

https://www.indycar.com/news/2021/09/09-27-pagenaud-msr

Helio full time in the other car, right? Former team-mates at Penske... I wonder if this could be really, really good.

Now, about Jack Harvey...?

He's going to end up in Sato's ride at RLL, just waiting for the official word on that too

Possibly to Grosjean's seat to DCR but only rumored as of this weekend.

Wasn't there talk of RLL becoming a full time three car team?

I think if they find someone to fully find it yes, Sato ain't bringing that much money it appears. Harvey's name is always mentioned as the replacement in Sato's seat. This weekend MP mentioned Sato to the Grosjean seat with DCR/RWR

Also - this gives Mike Shank a couple of really great options for third drivers in the long IMSA races... Pagenaud and Helio both know how to wheel prototypes of course. Cool.

Let's add Toronto to that list! We did it in 2013 (successfully, especially if your name is Scott Dixon) and 2014 (also successfully with two races on Sunday... not so good if you sat through the downpour on Saturday though).

Supposedly a multi-year is in the works and the team was quite cross at MP for saying he was not under contract for 2022 so I would venture that's confirmation just without the sponsors all signing their post-it noted pages

Well JJ and Grosjean get to have their own Rookie Orientation Program outside of the scheduled combined ROP and tire test with Pato and Helio. And of course everyone on Racer thinks millions will tune in to watch both of them turn their laps.

Remember Indy rookie testing is terribly boring, 10 laps at 205-210, 15 at 210-215 and 15 at over 215. It took Alonso 50 laps to record that, 10 over minimum.
