Former Formula One driver Romain Grosjean is set to make his NTT IndyCar Series race debut this season with Dale Coyne Racing. The ex Haas F1 Team driver is had been linked to a drive with AJ Foyt Racing however President of AJ Foyt Racing, Larry Foyt poured cold water on that theory saying that the team never spoke to Grosjean after they confirmed that Canadian Dalton Kellett will step up to a full time drive alongside the returning Sebastien Bourdais.
Grosjean, who burned his hands in a crash at the Sakhir Grand Prix at the Bahrain International Circuit last season revealed via social media earlier this week that he no longer needs the dressings on his hands tweeting:
Dressing fully off and Petrus happy!!!
