That would be great news!
It would give Mr. Johnson someone to play with.

We'll have to wait for 2022 at least, it seems.

Wonder why that track never comes up as an option. One race was hardly enough to make a good conclusion about it

I could see pagenaud going to andretti. He's always been the red headed stepchild at Penske for whatever reason. After his first season with them, he was already on the hot seat beginning year 2. Then he won a championship, which should have cemented him there for years. The next year he was 2nd or 3rd in the standings. Then the following hear he struggled and was immediately on the hot seat again. So what does he do? Wins indy. Now bringing both of those to Penske, you'd think he would be locked in. Instead, he was just ok last year, and somehow an older will power gets the extension before he does. His accomplishments are further in the rearview than pagenaud and he's been struggling more of late. Yet, it looks like pagenaud is on his way out.

A few years ago, penske was at 4 cars for a year or two and dropped back down to 3 when shifting Montoya and Castroneves over to imsa. Feels like a similar scenario, where mclaughlin is in to replace pagenaud to keep 2 younger guys, along with power. Then in a couple years, power shifts over to imsa as a 42-43 year old. Maybe they keep pagenaud for another year or two before moving him over as well? Either way, I'm not sure why he always seems to be the outsider of the group when he's performed as well as power at least, and probably better over the last few years.

Could do a lot worse than go with Pagenaud, he’s a safe pair of hands. He had a tough time at Penske and struggled to get anywhere at first, then had a lot of success with them, including the championship, showing far they had both come. Penske should have stuck by him. But they haven’t. But it might good for him

Penske earlier realised they couldn’t run four cars and it would be better off splitting it’s team into IMSA, which has worked well. Use the experience in sportscars, but keep them on standby for Indycars in case they are needed. But Pagenaud should go off elsewhere. He could even be better off going to sportscars. But I think he’s shown enough in Indycars to show he’s worth his place there, even if he isn’t quite a Dixon

He's still got something in him. Maybe he's lost a bit of his winning ways since last decade, but he certainly can come back, but there are plenty of others who can win now, so it's getting tougher all the time

I'm thinking he will get moved over the sportscar program in a couple years. Maybe that is the saving grace for pagenaud sticking at Penske? They both can compete a little longer and would both make good sportscar drivers.

Like it has been said, the field is super tough. There's 14 or so race winning contenders every race, and at least 10 that at the beginning of the year you would expect to compete for a championship. Maybe more now, adding in ericson and palou and the like. It is a very impressive field. I'd put it up against the f1 grid favorably, imo. Unless the competition was family bank accounts....

mstets should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Pagenaud is currently sixth in the championship, only 34 points behind Newgarden. His status in the team reminds me of Al Unser's in the mid 1980s. I am having trouble thinking of who is available for next season and could be expected to do a better job than Pagenaud. Grosjean might be a possibility if he was willing to do a full season, but the ovals would be a question mark. Ferrucci? I don't see him as fitting the typical Penske driver profile but he has performed pretty well with second tier teams. Who do you see as a possible?

Rossi might have been possible but his form has gone south in the last couple of years so his stock is lower I guess.
The likes of Pato, Herta, Palou and Veekay have taken the attention away from him.

Veekay might fit Penske's requirements though.
