    Yes, ABC Supply extended their commitment to two cars. AJ Foyt Enterprises has been around since the 1970s, so it’s a well established outfit and a definitive step up for Hawksworth.

    Fontana (Auto Club) is June 27th as per the list you’ve copied, Keith. Not sure about the placement of Pocono so close to the second Nascar Cup race – I was expecting it to be in July, with Milwaukee ending the season.

    Hawksworth already beat him this year, despite missing one of the 500 milers worth double points. The battle with JPM at Houston was fun to watch too. His one lap pace has always been good (going back to his first few Formula Renault races with the likes of Daniil Kvyat and Richie Stanaway).

    After the shenanigans with Rossi\Chilton at Spa and the collapse of the Marussia car company, this isn’t really a far-fetched scenario…

    Merhi was on the outside of a three-wide situation and come off worst.

    Nice run by Beitske Visser, outshining the usual suspects like Sainz and Gasly.

    That’s why there are budget caps. Oval aero was being tested at Texas Motor Speedway as well, no photos of those yet though.

    Someone took that from far back in the stands. Honda were testing designs elsewhere.

    Apparently it’s an early Chevrolet design, we won’t know the final version until mid-January.

    Koiranen have indeed thrown him a bone, he’ll be replacing Carmen Jorda: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/116230

    He’s out for 8 weeks and thus will miss the Jerez races: https://twitter.com/RyanTveter/status/519087491429969920

    To my knowledge Stoneman doesn’t bring any significant funding, so it sounds like Cullen Sr or Kujala’s sponsors have withdrawn their financial support…

    Gonzalez is spare income in the off-season. Hinchcliffe is making an announcement today (4.30pm EST) and I’m 90% sure that will be his move to Schmidt-Peterson Motorsports.

    The thing is that Ganassi already have Sage Karam under contract (who has already shown his adaptability and speed across Indycar, its ladder series and sports cars). He’s been consistently strong on ovals, something I have doubts about Bird being able to do. Out of the recent European-based converts Rubens Barrichello had the best oval average, approximately 9th (although that’s based on only 3 finishes). Aleshin showed more speed, but has a tendency to stick it in the wall too often to be reliable.
