    The other astonishing thing about this is there wasn’t even a yellow flag after it – never mind a red flag, which was surely warranted. Heads must roll over this one.

    We could have another change for the race. Mikhail Aleshin is stuck in France due to via problems so Robert Wickens will fill in for him in the meantime. If Aleshin can’t make it to the track in time for Sunday Wickens will make his debut. He previously tested for Schmidt Peterson at the end of last year:

    Anorak note: Wickens was Aleshin’s successor as Formula Renault 3.5 champion in 2011!

    Gutierrez has now been confirmed in Bourdais’ seat at Coyne for the rest of the season:

    http://www.indycar.com/News/2017/06/06-22-Gutierrez-back-with-Coyne

    He was thrown in the deep end at Detroit but he has prior knowledge of the track he’s racing at this weekend, Road America, albeit from ten years ago when he was in Formula BMW.

    After that Bourdais will see out the remainder of the season at Iowa (oval), Toronto (street). Mid-Ohio (road), Pocono (oval), Gateway (oval), Watkins Glen (road) and Sonoma (road).

    I agree to an extent regarding Ford but I think the series organisers need to cop some of the blame for allowing a car that wasn’t even on sale yet into the race. But that’s a different matter

    I’d dispute whether balancing performance does work better in other categories. I think it comes under greater scrutiny at Le Mans because the stakes are far higher, and it’s found wanting. If those other categories mattered as much and had manufacturers spending as much money on them the system would be just as obviously flawed there.

    I need to apologise to Paul as he in fact did post the correct answer but it looks like it post got eaten by the anti-spam filter. Sorry Paul!

    @ronanskie @peartree @xtwl @ben-n @chrischrill @hunocsi @cavman99 Great guesses everyone but I’m afraid no one got it. The sequence was:

    Sam Hanks
    Giuseppe Farina
    Piero Taruffi
    Luigi Fagioli

    And the connection is that these are the four oldest first-time race winners in the history of the championship. Fagioli was 53 years and 22 days old when he took his first win in 1951.

    As @xtwl has already suggested a new question let’s continue with that one.

    @xtwl OK one more hint:

    We’re talking about a record which is unlikely to be broken.

    No Alonso on the IndyCar grid this weekend but the series will have another F1 driver making his debut: Esteban Gutierrez will replace the injured Sebastien Bourdais at Coyne:

    http://www.indycar.com/News/2017/06/06-01-Gutierrez-to-Coyne

    Following Bourdais’ crash in qualifying Coyne suggested he would be out of action for at least 12 weeks. That would indicate a return around Pocono, by which time the championship would be almost over, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he chose to wait until next year before returning.

    @ronanskie Nope, that’s not it.

    As a hint, the next in the sequence is that last in the sequence.
