F1 should consider a return to Indy - Brown

Isaac Mcdaniel | 28 May, 2017, 06:43

"One of the things I've seen with Fernando is his attention to detail", three-time Indy 500 victor Dario Franchitti told CNN. But he is definitely curious.

"It's unusual initially but I'm getting to grips with it. I enjoyed it, I tapped the barrier a couple of times, it's good to know I am pretty much online and pushing the limits but no damage so far so that's good as well".

"I think it was the largest ever online views that IndyCar has ever had when he was not only doing his private test, but also in the days leading up to his qualifying at the weekend".

However, with F1 cars faster and more demanding in 2017 following rule changes introduced, Button said it took him time to settle in during Thursday's two practice sessions. "And if you believe that if you park in the front yard of a friend or at a relatives house and your auto will be safer and they would assume liability if something happens to it, that is just not true".

Alonso said he understood that interest back home in the Indy 500 had spiked by 800 percent.

"But it's more than my choice, especially with the way sponsorship is these days".

Jenson Button admitted he found his Formula 1 return "a bit of a struggle" but is confident he will improve for the Monaco Grand Prix.

"I think it was a wake-up call for him".

When asked what he would define as a successful race come Monday morning, he said: "I think enjoy the race, enjoy the moment, leave that's a race you can not plan, so I don't have any plans or clear expectations. But it's not in my control". So guys like Castroneves and Kanaan could end up like two-time Indy 500 victor Juan Pablo Montoya, who accepted a reduced role at Team Penske to make room for Josef Newgarden. "I could see that happening (with me)".

It's an event which has helped him get the racing butterflies back and feel like he did as a youngster breaking into Formula One back in 2001.

"He's probably with the best team to come as a one off, basically. Like I've seen Fernando say, "I'm not just coming here to drive, I'm trying to win", and realistically he could win it". That's not what I want.

Following the century running last year, this year's race has some big shoes to fill. It doesn't necessarily have to be in January. They know you are on quick lap. "Commercially, it's to make sure we deliver to our partners the exposure which we promised".

Is this the end of an era? Like in NASCAR, those decisions disappoint fans and leave an entire series looking for the next wave of new guys.

"He's done wonderful and to win the race he's going to be one of the guys you're going to have to beat", Dixon, a four-time IndyCar Series champion, said. "Some is choice and some is not by choice". "It's just kind of pinching each other every day, reminding each other of some little things so that you don't keep repeating things".

"With another day with the engineers and a look through the data, I'm confident that I can improve for Saturday, he added".

Fans at Indianapolis Motor Speedway were treated to a thrilling dress rehearsal for the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil with Monday's practice on the 2.5-mile oval.
