Servia talking to Rahal Letterman Team?UPDATE Catching up on updating some old rumors. This one is 'false' since Servia signed with Dreyer & Reinbold.
Q: The Rahal family seem to be big fans of yours. Graham couldn't sing your praises high enough regarding your car-sorting abilities when you replaced Robert Doornbos midseason at Newman/Haas in '09. But earlier that year, Bobby Rahal said – after running you at Indy – that if he could find a budget to run a car for a full season, you'd be his choice of driver. Does that still hold true? Considering he's bought two new cars, is Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing one of the teams on your radar?
Servia: Yes, for sure. I had a great month of May that year. Even before you join, you know it's going to be a good team, but when I joined I was still highly impressed with everyone, from Bobby and Scott Roembke down. So yes, that's one of the teams I've been talking to. As you know, it takes more than just desire to make these things happen, so there are a few things to work out, but for sure that is one of the teams I'd be happy to join.

Q: Were Telemundo not satisfied with their coverage this year?
OS: They were very happy. Telemundo have expressed to me that not only were they happy, but they would like to continue with me. It's a program they wanted to grow through the years, and it was like a marriage that worked very well. So I'd bet they would be on whichever car I went, but it's just not enough to support a whole car for a season.
Q: So the deal was never as big as it looked on the car in 2011?
OS: Your words, not mine! What I know is that Telemundo are committed and are trying to get the Hispanic rights to broadcast the races, so they're certainly not thinking of going away. The opposite, in fact.
