  • Has Mr. toe tapper lost his touch?

    Pretty early, and still in testing, but Helio is getting out driven by his new teammate. Has eating the King's pudding all off season caused the dancer to lose his hunger to win a little?

    any predictions on early returns?


    (and while we're speaking of hunger - wait for Kanaan at Indy this year - he's gonna win it)

      Briscoe is a Road Course specialist and no slouch. There is nothing suprising here at all. Briscoe is just that good.

        Helio's focus is on winning Indy. He'll be fine when May rolls around. (Although if Julianne is still in the picture, he may have trouble concentrating on racing )

          Briscoe just happens to also be faster than both Wheldon and Dixon also. Keep in mind that this is the same driver that finished 5th in a one-off at Indianapolis last year (albeit in an arguable 3rd Penske Car, but a one-off nonetheless).

            I take nothing away from Briscoe's abilities, I just think that Helio should have the upper hand at this point in the season - being familiar with the team and being a very well rounded driver - ovals and road courses, himself.

            I'm wondering aloud if these testing results are early clues that Castroneves will be outdriven by his teammate (again) this year.

              Test times are fun to look at, but they're really meaningless. Every car and team is working on something different, so there's no direct comparison. We won't know how anyone truly stacks up against the competition until March 28.

                  I agree, personally I think Milka is sandbaggin. I just cant wait till she wins the opener in Homestead.


                  this post was meant for pure enjoyment and fun although i do wish the best for milka

                      Of course Helio will be fine. He is a racer.

                        On road/street courses, he's every bit as good as Helio and will probably be better, but let's wait and see on ovals before pronouncing Helio is #2 at Penske and no, I'm not giving Ryan that much credit for finishing 5th at Indy when his crew left him out while four of the top five cars and a whole bunch of others pitted.

                        If you want a true reflection of what kind of car he had, compare him to Dario.

                        After the rain delay, Dario re-started 14th and Briscoe 16th on lap 115. On lap 151 when Marty Roth brought out a yellow, Dario was in 3rd and Briscoe 14th.

                            I suspect Helio will do well this year.

                              Not a game. Practice.
