Yeah, apparently "rookies" Although some are veterans, so a little confusing.

Still fastest out there.

I agree. It shows he is comfortable at least.

He's having fun. DOT. He's not worrying about blowing engines and he knows he has a competitive car. Time to enjoy, have fun and it shows. Like a kid in a play ground.

Real racers are the multi-discipline guys.
Like Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Mansell, Montoya, Aj.Foyt, Phil Hill, Bruce McLaren... Even include Kubica and Raikonnen.

Takuma Sato!?
Sato has been in Indy for 7 years.

You F1 fans need to look at where real racing is happening. And like Andre said true racing drivers don't just compete in the sissy pants F1 series they go run shoulders with other types of cars and series.

People like Bourdais, Raikonnen, Kubica, Gavin, O'Connel, Ambrose, and the list goes on. And that's just 4 wheel sports. People like Pastrana and Mira combine 2 and 4 wheel adventures. Those guys are real talents.
