The lady has impressive credentials and will definitely elevate SPM towards the front.

Right now Hinch is full of glee because he has a great engineer. But he may rue this change, because if he does not produce top results, his job will be in jeopardy.

It is getting tense with the final Indy Car seat. Zachary Claman De Melo quest for an Indy Car seat is now up for grabs. Emerson Fittipaldi's grandson Pietro recently tested Sebastian Bourdais seat. After testing multiple seats in Formula E and sports cars, the 2017 and final Formula V8 3.5 champion could possibly snatch the seat for 2018. Pietro is also sponsored by Telmex big chief Carlos Slim, due to Pietro's Mexican roots. His father is Mexican cigar merchant Carlos Da Rosa. He is also Max Papis nephew.

Love to see the Fittipaldi name once again.

Lucas Oil Field where not expecting the Indianapolis Colts for an autograph session. But Schmidt Peterson Motorsport/Michael Shank Racing were on hand as their liveries for the 2018 Indy Car season with drivers James Hinchcliffe and Robert Wickens who are the official full-time drivers. 2-time Indy Lights runner-up Jack Harvey will drive the #60 SPM entry shared by Michael Shank Racing and will compete only 6 events unless funding is found. Wickens changed his car number to #6 for 2018.

Oil magnate Total has re-joined Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing for this 2018 season as their team sponsor. the #15 car will have this special livery for the Toyota Long Beach GP.

This is considered as a reunion of sorts for Bobby Rahal since 1992.

Thanks Placid for these updates. These car look manifold ways more aesthetically pleasing to the eye than F1.

Best livery of all time for my money, anything that can be favourably compared to that can't be a bad thing. Hope the new car improves the racing as much as JPM has been suggesting it will, F1 could take a few pointers.
