Franck Perera is a young, talented driver. Naturally, then, he's now without a ride.
In the post-'96 world of open-wheel racing, this is not too uncommon. Perera deserves a ride, but talent is not the only currency needed. He lost out to a ridebuyer.
To be fair, former Champ Car fans gloating about this need to remove their heads from their, err, behinds. Look, we all knew that unification would NEVER fix everything right away. If we are still in this spot in 7-10 yrs., then we'll be in real trouble.
