Former Red Bull F1 reserve driver Juri Vips will make his IndyCar debut with Rahal Letterman Lanigan for the remainder of the 2023 campaign.
Juri Vips had his contract with Red Bull terminated over a year ago after he made a racist comment on social media. As a result, he lost his association with Red Bull and his drive in F2. However, he is now set to make his return to full-time racing in IndyCar. Rahal Letterman Lanigan, after releasing driver Jack Harvey, is looking to evaluate Vips in the final rounds of this season ahead of next year. Vips, who tested for the team earlier in the year, expressed his excitement about the opportunity and his hope to bring a good result for the team.
