Well, we may have seen the last of Ryan Briscoe in the Indy Racing League. According to CarsGuide.com, the 24-year-old Australian still has his eyes on Formula One, and he doesn't think driving on oval speedways is the way to get there.
Briscoe says he will not turn to the oval-based IRL series unless it is with a top team with the engineering brains needed for success and safety, but is also ruling out any full-time move to V8 Supercars in the immediate future.Thank you very much, Dreyer & Reinbold, but see ya later. Considering last year he was FIRED from a top team (Ganassi) after crashing in 7 of 15 races, it seems highly unlikely he will get hired by one for 2007. One can only conclude he wants to spend his Sundays following the SeaBass in that other league.
"I am still committed to open-wheel racing in the US," he says.
