What a complete micky mouse arrangement.
After the reunification process, the Indycar organisation have been frantically working out how to get their fans back, and away from NASCAR. Allowing this disgraceful deal to even be considered makes a mockery of the so-called professionalism Indycar are trying to portray, and is just going to turn people off, and perhaps new teams considering Indycar with the new cars in 2012. Everybody loses.
I've got a message for Andretti Motorsport, and it's really, really simple to understand, and it's something like this.
Hunter-Reay = slow, Junquie = fast. conclusion = remove H-R from car and replace with Junquie. Result = sponsors happy + sports fans happy, sports fans buy sponsors services = shareholders happy. Shareholders vote for more sponsorship for Team = Team happy.
On a slightly less sarcastic note - If anyone should have been rewarded with a seat it should have been Conway - at least he's been a race winner this season and is ahead of H-R in
