“Show me anyone who would not like to drive for this team and drive this car!" he said after a day of testing. “It all depends on what my main program is for next season. My focus is on single seaters, either in IRL, Champ Cars or maybe elsewhere. It's too early to say anything for certain.
“I'm still a road course racer and the IRL has about 14 or 15 ovals and three road courses which isn't really enough. [The ovals] are a completely different type of racing and you need half a year of experience to find out what it is all about. It wasn't easy, I did two tests before the first race this season and it was difficult for me to feel the car, it was difficult to get in the groove. It was generally not bad, it was hard but it wasn't bad. I'd say I need at least another half a year to find out what it is all about.
“I'd say the chance of the IRL and Champ Cars is about the same. We are in really good talks with Chevrolet and Patrick Racing who I drove for this season in those two races so it's looking very positive but we still have time to decide and I wouldn't say that either has an advantage over the other."
