Here's the Speed Channel link if anyone's interested....
www.speedtv.com/articles/auto/champcar/27170

According to the above link, and corroborated over at grandprix.com, current ChampCar Atlantic Championship driver Graham Rahal, who drives for MiJack-Conquest's Atlantic team, is slated to have a GP2 test sometime next week with DPR Direxiv team at the Paul Ricard circuit in France. If the sources are correct, if the 17yo Rahal has a good test session, the possibility of him getting a GP2 ride for 2007 could increase fairly well.

Currently, Rahal has two poles(Monterrey, Portland) and one win(Monterrey) to his credit and is 7th in the 2006 standings, 46 markers behind current points leader Andreas Wirth.

Scratch the above; bad weather the weekend prior to the recent GP2 test on this side of the pond prevented Graham from being able to attend the GP2 open test after sweeping both Atlantic rounds in Cleveland. :( :shock: :shock: :shock:

Lewis collided with Carroll in the first race putting them both out of contention, he apologised to Adam. Lewis did manage to set the fastest lap in race one. In race two Lewis started from 19th on the grid and managed to salvage 5th place which was no mean feat. :shock: :D

He looks like he has taken his eye off the ball doesn't he :? and yesterdays qualifying is yet more evidence of this. Racing is all psychology, just look at Fernando he's mind has wondered just for a second now it's snowballed and his break testing friday drivers and picking up 2 second penalties.

Apparently Lewis spun early in qualifying then had mechanical problems and never set a time... :oops: ...I tell you it's all in the mind and that is why SChumacher is so successful because he doesn't doubt anything; his ability, his fortune or his divinity! :roll:
