Hang out bump day with a helmet in hand. If the Lotuses are slow there may be some Honda and Chevy teams that decide to just throw a car out there for the paycheck if its almost a sure thing.
"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."

Yeah, I do anticipate that on bump day there will be a lot of spare engines sitting around since the manufacturers will overbuild out of an abundance of caution. The question is will there be enough extra chassis to put them in and enough time to get the contracts done to get them put in.
I really would rather have him than Michael Jordain Jr.. but like the Breadman said himself he doesnt have $$, which it what he needs. Hope he is there and works on a ride for next year, hopefully alongside with Pagenound on SSM/Hamilton.
There is probably a WEC team that will hire him to drive. And unless he spends the next 9 months hunting for money he won't have an Indycar ride in 2013 either.
Anybody walking the garage on bump day this year will still be in street clothes at 6PM.

He is driving this Judd powerd LMP1 this year.

Maybe he can drive the Newman/Haas car if Alesi's deal falls through.
It's a great shame that a driver who was so competitive at Indy last year will probably be on the sidelines this year.
