Felipe Nasr led Day 1 and Max Chilton led Day 2 in testing at Sebring Monday and Tuesday this week. Nasr had the fastest lap on Monday and was second quick on Tuesday. It is testing and probably doesn’t translate to a race weekend, but it is a nice way for Carlin to begin March. No driver has been named for car 31 as of now, but Nasr has to be a strong candidate. If someone else drives the car at St. Pete next week, the NTT Indycar Series opener will the first race without a Brazilian driver since 1999.
The times from Tuesday:
Rinus VeeKay looks as if he has adapted to Indycar quickly. We’ll find out how well in about a week. Back in a while with a summary of today’s Josef Newgarden/Simon Pagenaud teleconference.
