I think Ferrari is more likely to do LMDh than IndyCar, the Le Mans heritage is strong there, but if they did both I'd love it.

e: I wish jag would get their heads out of their asses wrt motorsports and start doing more sportscar racing again

I don't see it, simply because you can't win in LMDh, they'll just BoP you until it's "Your turn" again. Ferrari will go places they can dominate. *

* In theory, if they weren't shithouse.

I can imagine them treating an LMDh program same as they did 333SP or the current GTE program, where there's a pro team but it's not Philip Morris Scuderia Ferrari running it.

Huski Chocolate is a lifestyle, not only a product. It's about adventure & expedition. Living life to the fullest. It's a perfect recovery drink after training, because of the healthy carbohydrate and protein content, easy to digest and perfect for replenishing tired muscles.

more constructors good
but constructors just getting into the sport just to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into R&D so they can say they won is bad

i was about to type "how could you think otherwise" but I realized that everyone in motorsports has brainworms

Toyota in WRC had the greatest cheat of all time once too, so they've got that on their record. Plus the US IMSA GTP team curb-stomped that rules set into the dust as well.

I still don't see Ferrari to IndyCar, but hey, I guess we'll see if they can run Mission Winnow in the U.S.

Vettel in IndyCar would be awesome, if only for all the tantrum-inducing poo poo he would be forced to deal with in a spec series. Obviously not going to happen, though.

Nothing would top Nigel whinging "I feel really sick" and his crew telling him "You have a one lap lead, Nigel" (shut the gently caress up and drive the car).

I've been to the Toronto Molson/Honda Indy weekend since 1992 more or less. Bummer it's been cancelled.

She doesn't consider it a racecar unless there's a comma in the horsepower.

Also, given the condition of the bottle, that is clearly an early race drawing of Liz Power.

I'm pretty sure IMSA's revised calendar is missing Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport) as well for a very simple reason: crossing the border.

for the Toronto race, the choice would have to be made early due to the track setup and teardown plans as well.

here's hoping 2021 is more or less back to normal. I'm guessing even this schedule gets shifted around.
