Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal says that it is the right move that the NTT INDYCAR SERIES postponed the introduction of the new hybrid system until after the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 26.
Taking to X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday afternoon, Graham Rahal said RLL would have been at a major disadvantage as they have not been in a position to test the new hybrid unit.
Absolutely the right move, while a hard decision, it’s the right one by @indycar and the management team. Teams like @RLLracing who haven’t been able to test the units/car, would’ve been at a major competitive disadvantage, and any failures or delays would’ve been costly. https://t.co/LpwvOQEYzz
