This rumor is upgraded to 'fact' with this press release from the Newman/Haas team that Servia is driving for them.
03/11/11 With another test scheduled with NHR at Barber, Servia told Speedtv.com that negotiations are headed in the right direction and hopes for some positive news to emerge next week from Alabama. “Let’s say I feel a lot stronger on the possibility of joining NHR than the last time we spoke. Things are looking good. That’s all I can say right now."
03/07/11 Last night on SPEED CENTER Robin Miller reported that Newman/Haas will run two cars with Servia and James Hinchcliffe.
03/07/11 "I'm not at liberty to say anything but we will be testing and racing," Oriol Servia said at the end of last week. "It's looking good. You will see us at the track. It's hard to get the funding but we've been working very hard and I'm excited that we will soon have an announcement."
