Wilson insisted that a boycott wasn't on the cards and that he'd already had productive discussions with IndyCar vice presidency of technology Will Phillips about measures to reduce the downforce at Texas to meet everyone's concerns.
"We're disappointed with the position we're in but right now we feel like we can't really boycott," Wilson told reporters last week.
"I can tell you after the test that there's going to be pack racing with this aero package unless the downforce is reduced," Tony Kanaan agreed after taking part in the first test of the DW12 on the Texas speedway last week. "Having said that, we don't think boycotting is the right thing to do at this time."
Wilson also called on the series to look into improved safety fencing around the ovals, describing the current catchfence as being "like a cheese grater."
"We think the other type of fencing works better - but if we don't have pack racing then the fence isn't as big an issue," agreed Kanaan, who along with Wilson and Dario Franchitti represents the drivers' safety committee formed after the tragic events at Las Vegas last October.
