Yeah, he can't race yet I don't believe anyway due to Indy Lights not having enough full time drivers for points to count. He's got to earn the seat through time and points. And it sounds like Tiktum's time had finally come and gone, I would have thought when he was banned for that crash after the race he was done but guess Red Bull haven't seen enough to keep him. Think the only way O'Ward is back in Indy is on the way down after F2, or a short F1, visit.

IndyLights issue is that you need a minimum number of competitors for the SL points.

Some races had enough, some didn’t. The year overall did, but obviously not all did full season.

Seems like FIA (who would believe it!) never thought of this when they specified a number as the rules are unclear and open to argument and maybe negotiation.

Roger Penske receives the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The only other person from the world of motorsport to receive it was, former NASCAR driver Richard Petty, who won the NASCAR Cup Championship seven times.

Clearly no. Looks like motorsport is not on the top of the list of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Only one other person, in American motorsport, has been awarded with it.

Dixon tests Aeroscreen, though at first glance, it's not too dissimilar to the Halo. However, it didn't have the polycarbonate laminated screen in place.

I don't think the actual screen would be worth much in the sim, that needs on track visibility and cleaning/tear-off testing. Sounds like they are on pace for it to appear on track this fall though

That's one way to read it. I took it as RM has to file a story and there's nothing to report yet other SPM made a "substantial offer" but you know there was no way he was going there. Same as any claims about Ganassi, he's not going anywhere other than Andretti or Penske. As long as Cindric is in charge, to the extent Penske lets him, they will stay a 3 car with 4 at Indy only race team

I agree. There's nothing firm in that article.
Andretti wants to keep Rossi, we know that.
Penske wants to sign Rossi, we knew that already.
Andretti is going to run Honda or Chevrolet, nothing has been signed yet.

So, what's new? Except for the SPM bit (bid) ?

Just a case of: "Nothing to see here" as far as I'm concerned.
