Former Verizon IndyCar Series driver turned team owner Michael Andretti has become the latest series personality to react to former Formula One driver Felipe Massa’s comments that the series has done little for safety in motorsport.
Andretti tweeted on Monday evening:
I have to disagree with you on this,
@IndyCar is doing a lot of research in this area. They want to make sure it 100% before they implement.
Championship leader Scott Dixon and Chip Ganassi Racing along with Team Penske’s defending series champion Josef Newgarden and Team Penske have been carrying out testing on a new windscreen aero shield that will be introduced and as Andretti said the series aren’t rushing anything as they research the best option for driver safety.
