Verizon IndyCar Series team owner and winner of the 1986 Indianapolis 500 Bobby Rahal has criticized the domed skids that the Honda powered teams of which his team Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing are one have had to use for the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Rahal believes that the skids make the cars too unpredictable and inconsistent. Speaking ahead of the second day of qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 Rahal commented by saying:
One day it is great and the next day it is horrible, I don’t know what the hell is going on but something has to be done. I think this domed skid probably has a lot to do with it. You see some really good teams struggling.
This year Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing are running two cars with Spencer Pigot joining Graham Rahal at the team.
