Ant to give up on F1 for IndyCar?

While Takuma Sato is testing this month for STR, former Super Aguri teammate Anthony Davidson looks to be headed to IndyCar’s Panther Racing to extend his racing career.

The Briton was a guest of the team at the Detroit race last weekend, and was scheduled to test this week before an injury postponed the test, according to the IndyCar Web site.

Davidson, of course, has a long relationship with Honda, the official engine supplier for the series.

If he did wind up at Panther, he would be part of an all British lineup. The team announced today it had signed countryman Dan Wheldon, who was bumped out of a ride at Newman/Haas/Lanigan yesterday by Dario Franchitti.

Sutil says he needs to work on qualifying

Force India’s Adrian Sutil feels he needs to focus on improving his qualifying performance if he is to get results this season.

“I had a little bit of a bad luck weekend in Valencia, especially in qualifying,” Sutil told SPEEDtv.com. “In the race my pace was very fast, but I couldn’t show it. So I want to make a good race weekend in Spa, and be able to show all my potential. Especially in qualifying, I need to work on that, get everything clear in my mind, and put the hammer down.”

A year and a half seems a little long to come around to that idea. Time may be running short for the German. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
