On the latest episode of his and teammate Josef Newgarden’s online Bus Bros show, McLaughlin took a fan question which read, ‘If you could bring a driver from any other series into IndyCar, who would it be?’

The 29-year-old responded, “Shane van Gisbergen,” before explaining, “I just think he would be good; it would be interesting to see.”

Newgarden said, “I would love whoever anyone thinks is the best in the world, whether it’s a [Lewis] Hamilton or [Fernando] Alonso or [Sebastian] Vettel.

“I think they would have an interesting time going over to IndyCar and trying it.”
