Ilott to debut IndyCar

Some news which recently got announced is that Callum Ilott, is set to make his debut in IndyCar this weekend.

Ilott, was the runner up to Mick Schumacher in the Formula Two 2020 world championship, he unfortunately didn’t get a seat in F1, however his kept himself busy…

Callum, who is part of the Ferrari driver academy is also one of Alfa Romeo’s reserve drivers, he is also a test driver for Ferrari. Callum also takes part in competing in sports car races including the 24 hours of Le Mans where he finished 3rd.

However he has now been given the opportunity to race in IndyCar this weekend. He will be driving for Juncos Hollinger Racing.

“I am pleased and excited to be announcing I will be racing with Juncos Hollinger Racing at Portland,” Ilott said. “This will be my first time in the NTT IndyCar Series and running in the United States, which will be a bit of a change from running on the European side. I am looking forward to working with the team during this first phase of their development. I would like to thank the Ferrari Driver Academy for allowing me to take this opportunity and for Ricardo Juncos and Brad Hollinger for bringing me on board the team.”

My Opinion-

I think this is good for Callum, it could be a full time thing if he doesn’t get an F1 seat this year. It seems he just excels in everything he does, which isn’t a bad thing at all and he should count himself very lucky to get opportunities like this and i’m sure he does!

However, I would like to see him in F1 and we all know there are seats up for grabs this year…
