According to an article on Racer.com, GP3 runner-up and former F2 champion Dean Stoneman is eyeing a seat in Indy Lights or IndyCar.

"My goal now is to continue that momentum and secure a test in America. I feel I'm capable of going straight to IndyCar, but if I need to start in Indy Lights, I'm OK with that route. There's a lot of interest building around both series, and I want to invest myself into a career there."

"I believe I have the talent to start in IndyCar, but with Indy Lights, you can also learn the tracks before moving up, but I'm not the type of personality to go for the easier path or aim low to start," he said.

"I won the Formula 2 championship in my first try, I nearly won the GP3 championship in my first year, and there's no reason I can't go into IndyCar and do a good job," he said. "I know it would be a big challenge, but with all I've gone through and proven to myself, I feel I'm ready and capable. I'm not afraid of challenges, and I'm ready for either series – whatever I can make happen for myself."
