Tomas Scheckter still wants F1
Although Scheckter has yet to win a race in IRL he has been quick all year, leading most of the Indianapolis 500 before crashing out and then getting into a dominant position in the Texas 500 before being sidelined by mechanical failure.
Still fairly wild, Scheckter is beginning to clam down thanks to the influence of veteran crew chief Owen Snyder, who runs the Cheever operation.
Scheckter says that he hopes success in IRL will lead to opportunities in F1. "If I do well here," he said, "it will open doors."
