Indy Can Learn from F1

Following the untimely death of Dan Weldon, former Indy 500 winner, Tomas Scheckter's father Jody has described IndyCar as the most dangerous motorsport in the world.

Another former Indy 500 and F1 champion Nigel Mansell stated that Formula 1 safety measures can teach the Indy Series a great deal.

Weldon was a contemporary of Jenson Button and moved to the USA as an option he could achieve without the funding imperatives of F1.

With the Indy title already decided in favour of fellow Briton Dario Franchitti, the race was a prize fund arrangement at the end of the season with a larger field than normal and higher top speeds than F1.

Our thoughts are with Dan's family at this difficult time.
