The IndyCar rookie the series will miss this weekend

Double Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin was meant to contest IndyCar's Grand Prix of Indy with Team Penske this weekend. Imposed travel restrictions have delayed it, only increasing anticipation for when his series debut finally comes

It was probably some 18 months ago when Autosport told someone within IndyCar that the reigning Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin was eager to move to America to continue his motorsport career. The guy looked appalled.

"What a f***ing waste of talent!" he spluttered. "How can he live with that? All that road-racing talent and he's going to end up wanking around in an oval crapshoot week after week. It's gonna be Marcos Ambrose all over again - he'll win the road races and be lost on the ovals because he's got no data. What is he thinking?!"
