Rodolfo Gonzalez says he’s committed to Indycar in 2015 with multiple offers on the table.
Good thing he’s not buying his ride via a ton of Citgo Cash but rather his amazing track record in series such as GP2!

Nico Hulkenberg confirmed. In the post-Bellof era, a deal like this is a very rare yet pleasant occurrence.27th November 2014, 14:41 at 2:41 pm #287529
@jb001 I know about Valsecchi’s test with SPM. I’d just assumed Leal would be moving to North America this season given his connections to Juan Montoya.
In reality, I’m not too bothered by any of these moves. GP2 and WSR had roughly the same amount of top-level F1 prospects last year, and its not as if the midfield of 2nd and 3rd-year drivers in WSR is leagues better than the midfield of 2nd to 5th-year drivers in GP2. With drivers like Latifi, Stuvik, Kirchhoefer, Ocon, Bernstorff, and Stanaway testing this week, if they were to all somehow make the GP2 grid next year – that’s a very good haul of promising talent coming into GP2 to join those who will likely return – Vandoorne, Marciello, Gasly, and Evans.27th November 2014, 0:05 at 12:05 am #287502
I thought for sure that Leal would have been jumping to Indycar or Indy Lights.23rd November 2014, 20:11 at 8:11 pm #287007

For the record, Speed no longer exist and NBC Sports got the F1 rights back in 2013.
I’m very glad Will is sticking around with them – for all the undeserved flack they get for being forced to run in-race advertisements in a market where NASCAR and IndyCar can’t run without commercial interruption, or for “dumbing down” the coverage to actually try and attract new viewers, their coverage has been the best it’s ever been in the States.
I’m just wondering who will replace him in the GP2/3 booth.8th November 2014, 17:30 at 5:30 pm #284451
That’d be a big “get” for Toyota and the WEC.31st October 2014, 17:02 at 5:02 pm #281716
I remember a race at Homestead Miami Speedway, 1998, it was him and Michael Andretti dueling for the win. In the end, Andretti won, but Moore put up a huge fight.
His was the first death that hit hard, the first time a driver I recognized was killed at the wheel.29th October 2014, 20:33 at 8:33 pm #280829
That’s the easiest 10 quid you could make, honestly.
Sato’s old and can’t avoid crashing and eventually it’s going to get to a point where fan-favoriteness alone can’t justify a full-time IndyCar gig.24th October 2014, 17:45 at 5:45 pm #280243
Please tell me this is just an unfounded rumor.20th October 2014, 23:07 at 11:07 pm #279805

Dean Stoneman should have raced in WSR back in 2011 as Daniel Ricciardo’s teammate. Today he’s testing for Arden, who have previously fielded entries for drivers such as Pierre Gasly and Antonio Felix da Costa.20th October 2014, 19:30 at 7:30 pm #279801
I would expect a promotion to FR3.5 for the following two drivers:
– Esteban Ocon, has already driven for Comtec in small sample sizes this past season. A move up to FR3.5 seems likely, along with FP1 appearances in the major league. But will he still be a Lotus junior, or will Mercedes buy out his services as rumored?
– Dennis Olsen, 2nd in Eurocup this past season, also a likely pick for Red Bull Junior Team in 2015.
Also, I’m predicting a lateral move for Mitch Evans ala Jules Bianchi and Sam Bird.11th October 2014, 14:48 at 2:48 pm #278322
Jolyon Palmer wins the feature, and with it, the GP2 title. Evans 2nd, Marciello 3rd, Vandoorne drove a fantastic race to finish 5th despite a tactical blunder under the safety car.
All of them deserve to be in F1 by 2016.10th October 2014, 20:00 at 8:00 pm #278198
McLaren, please, loan Vandoorne out to some other team. It’s not as if Honda is going to want you to take youth any time soon.
