Paul Tracy, Justin Wilson and Robin Miller of SPEED are the stars of the April issue of RACER magazine, as we examine the immediate and long-term future of the IZOD IndyCar Series.
P.T. offers his unfiltered insights on all aspects of 2010, including…
- Danica Patrick: “When you're doing all that running around, it doesn't leave a lot of time to do the things that are necessary to beat guys like Dario, Dixon, Kanaan and Briscoe – guys who are singularly focused on what they're doing…”
- Helio Castroneves: “Last year he was getting it handed to him by both Power and Briscoe. [They could] make life pretty difficult for Helio…”
- The struggle for sponsorship: “I don't feel there are many teams actively trying to generate sponsorship. They're sitting back and relying on drivers to bring a pot of gold, and some of them can. Sadly Graham Rahal isn't one of them…”
Meanwhile, Robin Miller has penned the authoritative story on the proposals for the 2012 Indy cars, and ex-F1 designer Gary Anderson has delivered his verdict on the wild-looking DeltaWing and its rivals from Swift, Lola and Dallara.
Dreyer & Reinbold Racing goes under the microscope as the team steps up to two full-time cars, with multiple race winner Justin Wilson joining Mike Conway. Can they deliver the team its first win in a decade? Yes, he believes so.
The April issue of RACER is not all IndyCar. There's a great piece on Joe Gibbs Racing's Denny Hamlin, analysis of the Jenson Button/Lewis Hamilton pairing at McLaren, Allan McNish on how to be one of the best sports car racers in the world, an interview with Al-Anabi Racing's Funny Car star, Del Worsham, and much more.
