I think a brick for every win, would be a bit over the top and take away the prestige and achievement, that comes with winning this race 4 times. Otherwise, continue to give every winner a Mini Borg.

It's a shame Muñoz isn't in. He's looked very racy at Indy in the past.

I agree. He’s done well. Wonder what he is doing instead?

I wouldn't say he's done particularly well. His career has been somewhat sporadic and he hasn't done well, of late.

In his first season in 2013, he finished 2nd at Indy. In his first full season with Andretti Autosport in 2014, he got three podiums, with 3rd places at Long Beach, Houston and Pocono. The following year, he was 1st at Detroit but no other podiums. In 2016 he was 2nd again at Indy and 3rd at Mid-Ohio. 7th at Long Beach was his best result in 2017. He only got three drives in 2018, with 7th place at Indy his best result.

Practice is underway. Problems leave Fred worryingly down in 32nd. Am I right in thinking he was considering doing the GP of Indy as a bit of practice before the 500?
