Former Formula 1 and ChampCar racer Tiago Monteiro is in talks to join the IndyCar grid for this year's season-finale at Las Vegas, this week's AUTOSPORT magazine reveals.
The series is offering a $5 million bonus for any 'guest' driver who can win the race, although Monteiro said that it was not just the prize money that appealed.
"I know a few teams from my time there and some of them asked if I was interested," he told AUTOSPORT.
"I said 'yes' right away. Even if there was no $5 million, I would do it."
