IndyCar » ‘Road to Indy’ development system unveiled.

That's all well and good, but there needs to be some serious thought behind putting together a plan to get US drivers in a better position to make the move to Formula 1 or other upper-eschelon European championships. I agree with coldsteelrail2 that the current IRL formula isn't the most technologically advanced chassis on the planet, but it's what we've got at the moment. I understand the current IRL car is going to change in 2011. We'll see if it gets better. Anyway, my point is we need to get some more US drivers onto the world stage. The IRL can be so much more than just another path to NASCAR.

F1 » Ferrari opens launch season today.

It does look pretty sexy .... but looking at the pictures on another site, I think I still see some things that look an awful lot like barge boards, which I believe were written out of the rules for '09. I really do wish the FIA would close **all** the aerodynamic loopholes and say 'simple 2-element front wing, simple 2-element rear wing. That's it.' Maybe venturi tunnels. But hey, what do I know? However, all that said, I'm eager to see what the new rules do for racing (passing, perhaps?) next season. Game on!
