BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA wow…. I don’t really know how to respond to that12th April 2012, 18:30 at 6:30 pm #199344SteveMovieVoiceParticipant
Autosport said Bourdais as well. 12 drivers…12th April 2012, 18:31 at 6:31 pm #199345Victor_ROParticipant
@SteveMovieVoice Bourdais isn’t running a Chevy engine though, he’s running a Judd (from now on I’m no longer calling it a Lotus engine).12th April 2012, 18:45 at 6:45 pm #199346SteveMovieVoiceParticipant
@Victor_RO I never said that the engine for Bourdais was a chevy. I do realise he is in the Lotus badged Judd, that has been playing up. I was just adding that it’s 12 drivers who will get penalties, not 11.
Lotus are now a byword for joke, although Chevy are running them close in IndyCar with this debacle.12th April 2012, 19:01 at 7:01 pm #199348BasCBParticipant
And we thought Lotus/Judd were having trouble with reliability! Best chance so far for the Target cars to get pole, I guess.12th April 2012, 20:15 at 8:15 pm #199349AnonymousInactive
@WelshF1 but the title of the post is ‘Grid Penalties for 11 Chevrolet drivers’. Whether anyone else has a grid penalty is neither here nor there in the context of this thread.12th April 2012, 21:31 at 9:31 pm #199350Joel HollandParticipant
@welshf1 In fairness to Chevy, they have won the opening two races, so they’re hardly a joke. This ain’t good though.
Dixon for the win on Sunday? Pagenaud could be a bit of a dark horse too – podium maybe?12th April 2012, 21:31 at 9:31 pm #199351Joel HollandParticipant
Oh, and that Franchitti fella might be able to kick-start his season now too ;)13th April 2012, 12:55 at 12:55 pm #199352AndrewTannerParticipant
I wonder what the issue was with the engine(s)?
Better to be safe than sorry I guess!
