Karthikeyan has seat fitting for IndyCar

I do not know which team's car is in the picture, maybe Andretti?

Makes me think Sarah Fisher's car. It's the only one with a full blue monocoque?

I think it is blue because Tata is Karthikeyan's biggest sponsor

Wasn't the Schmidt #99 car at Indy (Townsend Bell) mostly blue too?

The top of the monocoque's on the Pagenaud and Bell cars were black, the rest of the cars were white and blue but reversed. Sato was also blue, but only the center bit, so there'd be a lot more white.

That basically looks like the blue with black sidepods car Clauson drove at Indy and Newgarden the rest of the year.

The old Dallaras had more of an F1-style intake. The kind of oval-y shape that's smaller at one end and has a gap to the top of the cockpit. That's a current car.

And the IR03 had pull-rod front suspension. That's a DW12.

Good spot Peat!

I would have thought Karthikeyan would have been better off in the WEC. Ovals are a little different for someone of his relative skill and age level.

Good pick up for Rahal. Wonder what that means for the man drivers rumored to be in that seat this season though?

Sam Schmidt apparently with two Frenchmen in the team, anouncement reportedly tomorrow. Pagenaud stays on, second driver is Tristan Vautier.

Bruno 'the man' Junqueira.

Must have been a hasty seat fit in Baltimore of last year.

Thanks a couple friends and I couldn't figure it out. I had a hunch it was from last year or last pre-season. I wish that was more of a permanent seat for him. Seems so talented but not good luck or just not a good opportunity.

Rahal saying that Conway's sponsor is new to IndyCar.

Whoever they are, I believe they're onto a good thing. With Mike refusing to run ovals, it'll certainly be a talking point from a TV commentary point of view. I bet he'll get some pretty mega air-time on the road/street courses he manages to run =.$$$ and exposure for the sponsor.

I see no reason to expect much from Conway, especially on a limited schedule. If he was making one-offs in a third Penske, maybe.

At one point Conway looked like F1 material, blitzing the British open wheel championships. His career kind of stalled once he got into GP2, bit of a collision magnet there (same when he was with AA in 2011).

The de Ferran car, yeah, but the darkness of the yellow made his daddy's car come to mind first.

I bet if they inverted the black and yellow that it would look more like the Miller car.

Especially recently, with lack of sponsorship being on some cars you don't see teams putting on such bold colors. Black, white and shades of grey (all 50 of them) must be cheaper to do.

Apropos of nothing (except that it continues to be a long offseason), I was watching the 2000 race from Surfers Paradise this afternoon.

Oriol Servia's calmed down a bit, hasn't he?

Good race. Someone who I will not name who you all you really screwed up in not wanting to keep this race. Especially with the rise of Will Power and Briscoe.

Always assumed those colours where 'Service Central', perhaps this was an interim livery to announced Midas?

Interim livery definitely, since they properly announced a livery now.

She long said she didn't want to have children. Maybe after seeing all the younger guys around him having kids, maybe he wanted one?

Or maybe 2012 was that bad of a season for him.

That makes me kind of sad because the chances of Newman/Haas returning get more slim. At least Original Recipe, because more and more of the crew is working other places. Which is good for them individually, obviously.

Let's hope this is the step Viso needs to become a true championship threat.
