The Verizon IndyCar Series introduced a universal aero kit ahead of the 2018 season and as a result of the new kits we have seen three incredible races with three different winners in the first three races and incredibly overtaking moves.
At the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg we saw over 360 overtakes and watched Graham Rahal come from the back of the grid to finish the race on the podium in second place.
In contrast in their opening three races of the season, Sebastian Vettel has won twice with Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing winning last time out in China.
The Haas F1 Team’s boss Gunther Steiner has taken a direct shot at the Verizon IndyCar Series saying that Formula One must not become a spec series like its American counter part however, the new universal aero kit kit in the Verizon IndyCar Series has produced three incredible races and this year’s championship is shaping up to be extremely exciting and close.
IndyCar are currently in Alabama for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.
So far this weekend the on track action has been extremely exciting as the drivers adapt to racing the new universal aero kit on the road course at Barber Motorsports Park.
Team Penske have unloaded well so far however Andretti Autosport’s championship leader Alexander Rossi and Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon are not at all far behind.
It is not only the on track action where the Verizon IndyCar Series is winning against Formula One but also when it comes to fantasy interaction and engagement.
A Verizon IndyCar Series fan can gain access to the Paddock and garages areas for an entire weekend for just over $100 or so whereas Formula One fans have to fork out thousands for that privilege.
