He got penalized for ignoring the blue flags on Saturday. Then yesterday he got a little aggressive (just a bit) with Justin Wilson. Then at the end of the race it looked like everyone really pushed him around when they passed him. Any thoughts?
add to that a pit row speeding penalty at PoconoI think Marco is a tier 1.5 driver. He has shown signs of being a top tier driver but he hasn't put it all together. (I consider a top tier driver as one who can win any given race). At Pocano he showed a great start but faded quickly. It is natural to compare him to his father and grandfather but that is the burden of a last name; like other next gen drivers he should be compared to his piers.
ouch! something else that some might say is relative. USAC was where it was at, really tough competition. Marco running in CART had a whole lot less caliber of driver to compete with. We probably don't even want to go there with the Rahal's.Marco is 27 years, 3 months and 23 days old. He has 2 wins in IndyCar.
By the time Michael was that age, he had 9 CART wins.
By the time Mario was that age, he had 10 USAC Champ Car wins, 2 USAC Champ Car Championships, a Daytona 500 win and a 12 Hours of Sebring win.
LOL no, we don't. But Bobby has always made Graham find his own way and wouldn't hire him as a driver until he brought his own sponsor to the team. Michael has given Marco a silver spoon and owned his cars at every level. So, I give Graham extra points for that.We probably don't even want to go there with the Rahal's.
