Agreed! Never heard of him, but looking at the results he didn’t even do that well. And he’s still 17.

not really, verstappen came 3rd in Euro f3 in his first year and won a load of races. This guy came 9th in us f4 after 2 years. Don’t get me wrong, I thought that verstappen could have done with a year in gp2, but he probably wasn’t going to be completely out of his depth skipping a rung.

My comment was about his age, rather than on track achievement.

Baltazar Leguizamón seems very well connected.

Looks like it has been confirmed.

That feels like a big upgrade from chilton or Kimball. Maybe not Hartley sized upgrade, but still.

Chilton was the biggest disappointment in 2016, but wasn't too bad in 2017.

Drivers looking for a ride include Carlos Muñoz, Charlie Kimball, Max Chilton, JR Hildebrand, Conor Daly, Mikhail Aleshin, Esteban Gutiérrez, Sebastián Saavedra, Santiago Urrutia, Matheus Leist, Jack Harvey, and Zachary Claman DeMelo.

Current teams with open seats include AJ Foyt, Dale Coyne and Ed Carpenter.

Additional seats could be at Carlin, Harding and Juncos.

Only ones I'd really be disappointed if they don't get a ride of that list are daly, claman demelo and urrutia. Hildebrand and harvey maybe a little too.

Racer reports that Tony Kanaan's new teammate in AJ Foyt's team would be Matheus Leist.

I see the Foyt team is still a career killer.

Munoz is probably off to IMSA now, like Hawksworth. I'd like to see Harvey get a full season deal - it seems that AutoNation (one of Andretti's sponsors) is supporting him so that's a good sign.

Leist could probably do with a bit more time in Lights, he was very inconsistent - won a few races, but also stuck it in the wall or was mysteriously off pace.

I never bought into the Hartley hype - he was just one possibility for the #10 car. Chip himself said as much. He doesn't have to hang around waiting for Hartley to make up his mind about 2018, and picking Jones is a big vote of confidence in the recent MRTI graduates.

Good point on foyt's team. He doesn't seem like someone to entrust with young talent. It's a shame for both Munoz and Daly. I mean, did foyt expect them to be in the upper half right away with a team like his?

They had a manufacturer change, didn't do much testing, and then despite the second half improvement, both drivers are let go. They should have fired Will Phillips instead.

On top of that they hire Kanaan of all people who is on a severe downslope, in addition to that lazy setup of running one car out of a different facility in Texas because of inflexible personnel arrangements. I don't even know if Larry or Foyt senior is the one actually calling the shots here.

Why are they running two cars from different facilities, doesn't make much sense?
