IndyCar to Welcome F1 Drivers for Lower Fees
text size: A- A+
At least not according to IndyCar's official site! Following FIA president Max Mosley's suggestions earlier this month that “a driver who does not want, or even cannot afford to pay for, a Formula One super license thus has many alternatives”, an open letter to all F1 drivers out there (under the signing of Indy Racing League management) appeared on the IRL official site.
The fictitious letter goes like this:
Know that IndyCar Series teams would welcome your participation in the 2009 or beyond season should you follow FIA president Max Mosley's suggestion of looking elsewhere to ply your trade.
Please note that an IndyCar Series license fee is only $1,000 (U.S.) - a bargain that includes your/three guest hard cards for venue admittance, participant accident medical insurance coverage and other benefits. There are no closing fees, user fees, points fees or even landing fees for your aircraft.”
Max Mosley has decided to take a “my way or the highway” approach of the matter, suggesting the F1 drivers have plenty or racing series worldwide to continue making a decent living. The message was quite clear: sign or resign! Under the circumstances, the North American league can only hope to put their hands on some world class drivers in 2009.
