You'll have to figure that out yourself, I'm not into amateur psychology.

For my part, I have no issues with you that would justify restricting my posting habits in such a way.

Ok.. maybe the internet is too narrow a conduit for me to understand your tact... I apologize for any misunderstanding.

It's quite a new question actually. Always used to be WDC.

And still truly is.

I'll be following Fernando without doubt and love that he's determined to crack Indy. The triple crown is one thing everyone is talking about and rightly so - but there is another group I want him to join. Almost as rare and exclusive.

F1 WDC/IndyCar champion/Indy 500 winner currently only 3 men hold all of them collectively. Hopefully Fernando does IndyCar for a whole season at some point... in terms of open wheel it doesn't get more exclusive than that.

I wonder what number they'll use, I'm sure they'll want to keep the 29 from 2017.

"Reportedly"

Yeah, that'll be the Chinese whispers death knell alright.

Funnily enough Eric Bretzman said Fernando told him the exact opposite...but you read the internet so that's where the truth is ...

 

However....your second assumption seems spot on.

Formula-e is, as coined by a certain driver I know, "Like trying to ride a flaccid penis"

Yeah I keep hearing that too, but I've never seen a solid source linked to it at all.

Isn't he? I haven't heard him say anything about it but maybe I missed it.

I've seen a couple of stories quoting Alonso indicating he has no interest in FE.
