Ferrucci finds a seat in IndyCar

After being given a two-weekend ban by Formula 2, having been fired by Trident for the remaining races of the season, Santino Ferrucci has found another series to compete in.

He will drive in the final two races of IndyCar’s current season for Dale Coyne Racing, with whom he raced in the double-header at Detroit in June. On that matter, Trident said the following, while announcing his firing from the F2 team:

“Since the beginning of the championship, [Ferrucci] justified its payments’ default with alleged failure by his sponsors to fulfil their obligations. It seems weird that, despite such kind of issues, Santino Ferrucci had the resources needed to enter the Detroit INDY race from June 1st to 3rd while, at the same time, he was not honouring his agreement with Trident Motorsport.”

However, on the other side of the Atlantic opinions about Ferrucci differ.

“We were very impressed with Santino at Detroit this year, and not just by his performance behind the wheel, but also by his professionalism and maturity outside of the race car,” said Dale Coyne. Ferrucci retired in the first race after a collision, and ended race two one lap down.

Ferrucci said: “I am extremely grateful to Dale [Coyne] and everyone at Dale Coyne Racing for giving me this opportunity to get back behind the wheel of an Indy car in Portland and Sonoma.”
