    He’s had a lot of collision DNFs in Euro F3, otherwise his results are respectable considering he’s not with an established team like Prema or Mucke.

    In an intriguing development, Jake Parsons and Colton Herta will test for Cape Motorsports’ USF2000 team.

    http://www.racer.com/latest-stories/item/108644-road-to-indy-herta-parsons-to-test-for-cape-motorsports

    Parsons is considering a move to the Indycar ladder:

    “I have tested previously with Cape in F1600 about two years ago now. It was one of my first drives in a racecar, and I set quick times, so it will be good to see them again. I’m in the F2000 for half a day, and then switch over to the Pro Mazda for the second half, get the feel for the two, and give me a good idea of where the categories are at, and what I want to do for next year.”

    “Racing in America definitely interests me, it would be an exciting place to go and race. There and Europe are probably the two top places.”

    Parsons won in the Formula Masters China series last month, if I recall correctly (also at Sepang).

    Still aged 14, Herta takes pole position and wins in his Formula BMW AsiaCup debut despite entering the series part-way through: https://twitter.com/Hallbean/status/510628509698375680/photo/1

    I could see KV getting rid of Saavedra, but Coyne doesn’t have the money to pay two drivers good salaries and maintain both cars.

    Apparently Briscoe’s presence at Ganassi next year isn’t confirmed yet, so that would the best open seat.

    Guret has also sampled Formula Renault and Formula E machinery this year, as he evaluates options for the 2015 racing season.

    “We’re going to bring him back to Indianapolis either tomorrow or Wednesday,” said Dr. Terry Trammell, safety consultant for the Verizon IndyCar series and the orthopedic savior of Indycar drivers the past 34 years.

    “I’d like to keep him in Methodist (Hospital) for one night so everyone can see him and then he could either stay in Indianapolis for a while or go back home. It’s his call and I think he wants to be back in Russia pretty quick but he doesn’t need to go into a rehab hospital. He’s going to be sore everywhere for quite a while but he’s been walking around the hospital in California and he’s doing really well.”

    “I think they’re going to move me to Indy in a couple of days,” said Aleshin, who admitted he’s rather bored with sitting in a hospital bed. “I still have to heal, but it’s OK. It won’t take too long.”

    “…the first thing I thought about when I woke up – how is my car, and can I race? At the moment, the only thing I have to do is my recovery, and then I will think about 2015 when I am better.”

    He posted “That was a strong life lesson” on his twitter account. Not much else.

    For those that were curious about Aleshin’s accident, a more detailed explanation is here: http://www.indystar.com/story/sports/motor/indy-car/2014/08/30/mikhail-aleshin-indycar-ganassi-racing/14866233/

    The initial impact with Kimball’s car was measured at 97G.

    “I’ve been crunching numbers all night,” Dr Trammell said Saturday. “Ninety-seven lateral Gs. We’ve never seen that applied over such a small area (of the car).”

    I like the anecdote about the volunteer nurse who spoke Aleshin’s Russian dialect.

    The track holds 90k, even Nascar races don’t sell a majority of those seats. Third date change in as many years, August in California is extremely hot (that’s why the race started at 9pm). No support series either.
