This Blue Angel looks a bit green

Clearly fed up with 73 winless races in the IndyCar series, Vitor Meira took his skills and reflexes this week to a team where they can be greater appreciated. Namely, the United Stats Navy. It remains to be seen if they’re going to call him to action though, since towards the end of the clip you can clearly see Vitor looking a bit unwell. (I suspect Dario Franchitti has also made this same face during the last two races.)

It should be noted that Vitor's seven(!) runner-up finishes have featured six different winners, so if he gets that F/A-18 fully armed he's got several choices for targets. Number One might be Dan Wheldon, since he kept The Mirror Man from victory at both Richmond in '04 and Indy in '05. Of course, Brian Barnhart might want to prepare a bomb shelter as well.
