Remark of the working day

Romain Grosjean’s go to Juncos Hollinger for the 2024 IndyCar period did not thrill RandomMallard…

Actually, not a huge supporter of this go to be trustworthy. I have truly liked looking at Grosjean in IndyCar, have rooted for him a large amount of the time, and have truly desired to see him (lastly!) choose a acquire. Moreover, I recognize why Grosjean can charm to a group like JHR on a marketability foundation as nicely. He’s nicely-recognized and, as considerably as I can convey to, frequently rather preferred in Indy.

On the other hand, I really don’t see what JHR have to obtain from bringing in a 37-yr-aged, who used the latter element of previous period having difficulties rather typically, around a 24-yr-aged (admittedly twenty five by following period) who has extensively been noticed as undertaking pretty strongly in a car or truck/group set up that is not rather on the similar degree as the Andretti, Penske, Chip Ganassi setups. I can recognize it remaining marketable, but I’m not certain how it’ll function out from a outcomes standpoint. RandomMallard
