Well that didn't last long...
Not sure what happened here, although it seems that statements made by Askew's management did not help.
Some people are highly vulnerable to concussions. Jahvid Best was a potentially great NFL running back but had to retire because every time his head hit a solid object, he would be significanty concussed, and he became more and more susceptible, which is normal. Oliver Askew may have the same issue. Or his concussion may have been a bad one. Bad concussions leave you sensitive to light and unable to sleep.

...certainly an interesting point to aver. However, I hope not. I would think that a driver of his caliber would still prefer to be an "also ran" in a Haas rather than a contender in Indy...also not sure of his oval skills.

...but if true, is Indy soon to be the F1 retirement home?

many times Jolle, many times. However it's somewhat surprising how often it has proved not fruitful. :wink:
