@twblackb Thoughts on external complaining by drivers to media. Bad for IndyCar's image?
@DJWIndyCar Personally I think we should be free to say whatever we think but unfortunately the decision of what is right and what is wrong isn't necessarily my personal opinion...I prefer the drivers come to me to complain rather than tell all of the fans that Race Control is a bunch of muppets.
@RumJumbie Do you know how the teams feel about IndyCar not having a media director for a year now? Media being the food for sponsors…
@DJWIndyCar The teams are aware that IndyCar is rebuilding all of front office, media included, so I think the teams understand what's going on and IndyCar is trying to do it as quick as they can.
@PaulJourdain Will Mexico be back in the future?
@DJWIndyCar Not in the immediate future, but it is a place of high interest for us to be racing in Mexico...you can never say never. We had some great races in Mexico and had a strong fan base there and I think we definitely need to get back.
@ILovedCART Would an international series possibly have new TV partners?
@ILovedCART Can the DW12 exhaust note be modified without affecting performance? F1 and CART cars SOUND(ED) fast.
@DJWIndyCar I'm told that it's difficult to change the sound by the exhaust itself. The biggest difference in the note of the IndyCar will come from the engine configuration and the rpm...older Indy cars were V8 and we had higher rpm which gave them a different sound.
@MDavidSchafer Has a date for Brazil been found yet?
@DJWIndyCar We have a date for Brazil but there appear to be some issues in Brazil that are currently being resolved which may change the date. As of now, it's as advertised.
@isitmayyet Can you elaborate on how an international series makes money and doesn't cost more money? I don't see it.
@DJWIndyCar Compared with some series in the world, ours is cheaper and the promoter pays for the team travel and the fee to IndyCar which the teams share in... Our racing is a relatively cheap deal for the value.
@KeyWestChris Next year at the end of the 2014 season there will be a six-month layover until 2015. No off-season series. Employee layoffs?
@DJWIndyCar I hope not.
@simverdi Time for fresh thinking in audio coverage? Sports car racing has got this right in recent years, whereas the Indy format is tired.
@DJWIndyCar You got my vote.
@ILovedCART Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions today. I appreciate what you're doing for my favorite sport.
@DJWIndyCar Thank you and I hope you and all of your racing buddies continue to support IndyCar. Only with the support of the fans are we able to make IndyCar better.
@AaronM1978 Can you give teams the higher horsepower they get for a road course and make them manage durability so they make the 500 miles?
@DJWIndyCar Possibly yes, but for 2014 we have no plans to do so...
@_GiuCanbera What's the current situation with IZOD? Any possibilities on a new title sponsor for 2014?
@DJWIndyCar Working hard on it…
@DJWIndyCar Thanks for the questions.
