Dale Coyne Racing team owner Dale Coyne has said that the deal with the Haas F1 Team’s development driver Santino Ferrucci came together quickly.
The American will drive in place of Pietro Fittipaldi in the No.19 Paysafe Honda for the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear and speaking about the deal, Dale Coyne said:
“It came together quickly. “His agent contacted us and said there was an interest in maybe doing an INDYCAR race or two this year. It kind of fit together all at the right time because we were trying to decide who was going to be the driver here (at Indianapolis) and how are we going to move around and make that work logistically, financially, all the things that had to happen.”
