THE LIST OF DRIVERS FOR THE 2021 US INDYCAR CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

[ad_1]

INDYCAR 2020- The peloton of single-seaters.

The 2021 IndyCar US Single-Seater Championship field will include, as regards the teams expected at the start, eleven Teams with thirty-one cars confirmed full-time and thirty-one drivers therefore, including ten locals, ten Americans and twenty-one foreigners. To date, they represent thirteen countries (Australia-Brazil-Canada-Colombia-Spain-France-Holland-Japan-Mexico-New Zealand-Sweden-Switzerland-USA)

Some drivers will only compete in the queen event, that of the Indy 500, the prestigious 500 Miles in Indianapolis, such as Marco Andretti or the Swiss Simona de Silvestro back in Indy!

Others like the ‘rookie’ the F1 pilot, the French Romain Grosjean, enlisted by Dale Coyne and who will discover the discipline will not participate in the four races on oval. So his new team, Dale Coyne will have to find him a replacement!.

We know that Rick Ware’s son, Cody, who should play a full season in NASCAR, should also race a few rounds of Indycar and so far it seems that his name is linked to a possible third car, rather than to replacing Grosjean on the ovals as he recently tested at Sebring, because it wouldn’t make sense if there wasn’t at least the idea of ​​racing on the road and street circuits.

James Davison, who has long been linked with the Ware team, could also be included in the package, where we could also have the return of experienced drivers, like Oriol Servia, or even youngsters, like Spencer Pigot or Oliver Askew.

As for the Carlin team, which reaffirmed its commitment to the USA with Alex Peroni back in Indy Lights. It seems quite plausible that we are witnessing the return of a situation similar to that of 2020, with the Max Chilton-Conor Daly alternation, while for the second car, it will take a driver who brings the budget…

INDYCAR 2020 – ST PETERSBURG – SIMON PAGENAUD from Team PENSKE

At Roger Penske, who now owns the Indycar Championship and the Indy circuit, there will always be four drivers, including Frenchman Simon Pagenaud – the 2016 Champion and winner of the 2019 Indy 500 – but also Josef Newgarden (USA) crowned him in 2017 and 2019, Will Power (Australia) crowned him in 2014 and victorious in the 500 Miles in 2018 and the Australian driver, Scott McLaughlin the V8 Supercar Champion.
