Does Bernie still own Cosworth?
Forsythe and Kalkhoven according to Wikipedia.
Did he ever own Cosworth?

Prior to Forsythe and Kalkoven it was Ford, and prior to that Vickers had bought it back in the late 80's. Prior to that they (Cosworth) had sold to United Engineering Industries, but Duckworth in that sale retained the position of President, and was a Board Member of UEI.... he was also involved in the technology side.

McLaren have ordered two cars. So it's entirely possible they'll run two at Indy.

Hopefully NTT are putting a lot of money in.

But I doubt they are.

Carlin confirms Chilton, part-time for Kimball. Makes sense with Wehrlein supposedly doing a few rounds.

No surprises with Chilton.... As for Wehrlein I guess that will be in between sessions as Ferrari simulator bitch. Still, that function saw Kvyat get another return to F1. :roll:

Kvyat got a lot of credit for his simulator work during the year, especially at Singapore, IIRC, where they at least wasn't as lost as they were during friday, come qualifying. That said, it might all be meaningless fancy words. Simulator work is important today, but it's not really glorious.
