gonzo, I care about the top ten but only as a potential indicator of who is getting competitive for the top positions (supposedly - yeah I know the weakness of my argument...)
MrKiwi - I Like Red Cars
The jury is still out. People on either side of the argument were going to overreact after 1 race. I expect him to be much more competitive this weekend.
I dont necessarily disagree with the Rubens supporters who think he will be competitive this year and maybe win a race. I dont think that is unreasonable. All that yesterday showed is that IndyCar is a damn fine series with some damn fine race drivers with some challenging cars and tracks to get used to. You dont just walk in and run the show.
Now, the Rubens supporters who thought Rubens would simply walk in and dominate the series and take it to the Indycar elites, are complete rockheads and out of their mind and this season will make fools of all of them. Plain and simple.
My words may not be what you want to hear.....but what you need to hear. TF CHALLENGE: CONVINCE 1 NEW PERSON TO WATCH INDY NEXT SUNDAY
I guess the thing is we'll never really find out because no Indy Racing driver has ever had a chance to go to F1.
Hey Ernest.........remind me again who won the pole, and who occupied the three steps of the podium at Barber.
Hey Ernest, remind me again who won the pole and who won the race in Long Beach and who is one and two in the championship.
I think Rubens is in the top ten.
Get your head out of your past!!!
I didn't think he was going to come in and set the world on fire and make the series look silly, but I did, and still do think he will be very competetive.
"Unfortunately, the business types who now permeate the sport don't share this same gut centered devotion. I can only hope that the truly addicted will prevail, and that the original spirit of open wheel competition will somehow manage to survive and prosper into the future."
