Sezona 2021 nije cestito ni zavrsena a vec pocinju testovi za 2022. Sutra (sreda) na programu je ruki orijentacija za novopecenog Andretijevca Romana Grozana i Ganasijevog Naskar izbeglicu Dzimija Dzonsona u pripremi za debi na Indi 500, zatim u petak sledi Fajerstonov test (Kastroneves ispred Honde i O'Vord ispred Sevroleta).

Imamo kalendar sampionata, u planu je sledecih 17 trka:

27. februar - St. Pit (ulica / aerodrom)

20. mart - Teksas (superoval - vise nije dabl-heder)

10. april - Long Bic (ulica)

1. maj - Barber (autodrom)

14. maj - VN Indijanapolisa (autodrom)

29. maj - Indi 500 (superoval)

5. jun - Detroit (ulica - verovatno poslednji put na Bel Ajl, i vise nije dabl-heder)

12. jun - Elkart Lejk (autodrom)

3. jul - Mid-Ohajo (autodrom)

17. jul - Toronto (ulica - valjda ce, vec kriziram nakon dve godine bez trke)
23. i 24. jul - Ajova (kratki oval - povratak na kalendar, dabl-heder)

30. jul - VN Indijanapolisa II (autodrom - moguce drugacija konfiguracija staze u odnosu na prolecnu trku)

7. avgust - Nesvil (ulica)

20. avgust - Gejtvej (kratki oval)

4. septembar - Portland (autodrom)

11. septembar - Laguna Seka (autodrom)

 

Dakle dva superovala, dva kratka ovala (od cega jedan dabl-heder, za ukupno pet ovalnih trka), pet ulicnih trka i sedam autodroma (od cega dvaput na Granpri konfiguraciji IMS).

 

Za sada zvanicno potvrdjene promene vozaca:

 

Andreti je dao otkaz dugogodisnjem vodji tima Rajanu Hanter-Reju u #28 i Dzejmsu Hincklifu u #29. Umesto Hanter-Reja potpisan je Roman Grozan za kompletnu sezonu ukljucujuci i ovale, dok ce bolid #29 verovatno da spadne na delimican program sa Devlinom de Franceskom za volanom.
 

Simon Pazeno je dobio otkaz u Penskiju i preci se u Mejer-Senk #60 umesto Dzeka Harvija. Penskijev program #22 se gasi (moguce da ce biti samo Indi 500). Pazenoov kolega u MSR #06 za celu sezonu bice Elio Kastroneves.

 

Takuma Sato je dobio otkaz u RLL #30, spekulise se da ce umesto njega upravo Dzek Harvi. RLL je objavio da planiraju tri bolida za kompletnu sezonu, pored standardnog Grema Rehola u #15 i kogod vec bude menjao Satoa u #30 tu ce biti i #45.

 

Potvrdjeni su O'Vord i Rozenkvist u Meklarenu (dakle bez promene), Njugarden, Mekloklin i Pauer u Penskiju, Erikson, Dikson, Palu i Dzonson u Ganasiju (ostaje da se vidi koliko ce Dzonson voziti, ako bude preskakao neke od ovala opet ce ga menjati Kanan), Kalum Ajlot u Hunkosu (pridruzili su se pred kraj sezone 2021, imaju zatvorenu finansijsku konstrukciju za celu 2022), ViKej kod Karpentera...

 

Ocekuje se da ce aktuelni Indi Lajt sampion Kajl Kirkvud naci mesto kod Andretija makar za Indi 500. Karpenter ce opet u deobu sezone u #20 (verovatno ponovo Dejli na ne-ovalima) osim ako ne bude dovoljno novca da Dejli preuzme celu sezonu u #20 a gazda Ed bi onda bio u trecem bolidu samo na ovalima. Kod Fojta se ocekuje da u #4 ponovo bude Dolton Kelet dok bi u bolidu #14 mogli da se smenjuju Tatjana Kalderon i Sebastijan Borde u vikendima kad ce biti slobodan od obaveza u Ganasijevom IMSA sportskom prototipu. Verovatno cemo opet imati tri bolida kod Dejl Kojna mada jos nema naznaka ko bi bili vozaci. Neizvesno je da li ce Karlin da nastavi posto je Ciltonovo sponzorstvo po svoj prilici presusilo...

Kirkwood earned a $1,369,425 scholarship for three IndyCar races in 2022 - including the Indianapolis 500 - but is fully focused on landing a full-time drive in the championship for next year.

 

He was joined at Sebring for the first of two evaluation tests - the second coming at Barber Motorsports Park on 25 October - by Andretti Lights team-mate Devlin DeFrancesco, who has heavily been linked with taking over James Hinchcliffe's seat in Andretti's #29 car next year.

 

Andretti Autosport race engineer Ray Gosselin said the team “couldn’t be happier” with the way Kirkwood and DeFrancesco adapted to IndyCars, with Kirkwood piloting Colton Herta’s #26 car run by its regular engineer Nathan O’Rourke, while Gosselin ran Devlin DeFrancesco in the #29 car.

 

Kirkwood turned a fastest lap of 52.49s, while DeFrancesco produced a 52.85s.

 

 

I dzabe sto je Kirkvud osvojio titule u svemu u sta je seo i sto je 4 deseta brzi po krugu, DeFrancesko ce da dobije mesto jer ima bogatog tatu...

If he likes the car and atmosphere, the next driver to migrate from Formula 1 to the NTT IndyCar Series could be Nico Hulkenberg.

 

RACER has confirmed the German with nearly 180 F1 starts will test for the Arrow McLaren SP team on Monday at Barber Motorsports Park. The test is said to be a standalone event for the Aston Martin Racing reserve driver whose last full-time F1 season was completed with Renault in 2019.
