Three current IndyCar drivers, Tony Kanaan, Sebastien Bourdais and Scott Dixon, are taking part in this weekend's 86th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. All are driving for Ford Chip Ganassi, in the LMGTE PRO class. Good luck to them.

IndyCar drivers think the series must be careful in how it opens the 2018 car up to development, fearing a rise in costs would "kill" smaller teams.

Dallara will introduce a front wing extension, that is intended to increase front downforce.

That article says: "Multiple sources say McLaren-to-IndyCar will happen". I've yet to read one source.

Well if it does happen, it would be good to have an established name in the team, with loads of experience of Indycar

I believe that's MP referring to his sources are telling him. Why would he be quoting other news outlets when he has a great network of insiders in the paddock who would be his sources?

If he has multiple sources, It would be helpful if he provided some confirmation because so far there has been none.

That's the point of sources, they are secret.

I think you're looking for confirmation of news that isn't his to confirm and the reason he phrased it the way he has is because his sources were speaking with him and not for the record. Otherwise he would have had confirmed names and likely an interview with Zak or someone else from McLaren. At this point it feels like McLaren has been kicking the tires enough to warrant smoke, everyone involved in Indycars has hinted at their talks and they've been seen talking with multiple teams and both engine builders more than just conversationally.

Maybe he shouldn't have said he's got multiple sources if they are secret and if the information isn't his to give, otherwise he's just begging the question.

Anyway, this is the most recent article I could find.

Do you not understand how reporting works? That's what happens every day so I'm not sure what you think he's done wrong here?

Of course, which is why one cites one's source.
