Penske didn't have its best year. Neither did Rosenqvist at McLaren. Carpenter and Foyt are just uncompetitive.

mstets should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I wouldn't say Carpenter was noncompetitive, though they did struggle during the 2nd half of the season. VeeKay won at the first Indy road course event, then he and Ed qualified 3rd and 4th for the 500 and finished 8th and 5th. Daly and VeeKay led 40 and 32 laps in the 500, with Palou the only other driver to lead more than 20, with 35. VeeKay had a win and 5 additional top tens in the first 8 races before his cycling accident, but scored no top tens after returning. It will be interesting to see how things go for him next season.

Good points about Rinus.
He was well in the mix with the other young stars early in the season but struggled when he returned. Was he still carrying legacy of the accident?

I would be surprised if he wasn't and I was also surprised with how quickly he returned to racing, after breaking his collar bone. Detroit 1 was on June 13th and he was back on the 4th of July for Mid-Ohio. It takes about 6 to 8 weeks to heal in adults, and 3 to 6 weeks in children.

Looking at his results prior to the accident, he got a 1st at IMS and 2nd at Detroit 1, with his worst results 18th at Detroit 2 and 20th at TMS. He missed Road America and post accident his results were pretty lacklustre, with his best result 16th at Mid-Ohio.

I broke a clavicle in a similar cycling accident. I went over the bars when I hit a raccoon. It took me a couple of months to recover but I'm sure Rinus got much better treatment. So I was impressed to see him get through the weekend at Mid-Ohio with so little time lapsed after his accident. He qualified 11th but only managed a 16th place finish. I think he said later that he wasn't in top shape at that race, but I don't recall hearing that the injury hampered his pace after that. I hope that the team can find some road course pace in the off season and Rinus can be competitive.

A couple of months, 6 to 8 weeks is the average amount of time, but we all heal differently from each other and that partly depends on the severity of the fracture.

I'm not surprised he wasn't in top shape, though with 16th at Mid-Ohio being his best result post the broken clavical,makes one wonder what shape he was in for the remainder of the season?

Team dynamics may have come into play. When things are going well everyone on the team has confidence, which tends to lead to more good results. I don't recall the circumstances of the Nashville race relative to VeeKay, but he didn't qualify well and finished 24th. That seems to have set the stage for the rest of his season for whatever reason.
