Gil de Ferran, a.k.a. the guy who won the Indy 500 four years ago (it seems longer) has stepped down from his job as Sporting Director of of Honda's F1 operations. Effective immediately. No nasty quotes were readily available.
This may (or may not) have implications in the short (or long) term for Formula One aspirations of Young Marco Andretti. Every time there was a recent story of Andretti testing for Honda it seemed de Ferran was around saying encouraging words. Then again, maybe this is like second place at Indy - nothing.
On a related note, the front page of IndyCar.com is featuring a poll to bring back de Ferran in some capacity to Honda's IRL operations. Curious.
