IndyCar: Luiz Razia contemplating switch to American open-wheel

By ,

Former GP2 driver Luiz Razia is considering a switch to the American based IndyCar championship.

"I have someone talking to IndyCar teams for me," the Brazilian confirmed on SportAuto.fr. "It's Gil de Ferran's agent. He knows the championship well."

According to ItaliaRacing.net, Brian Herta Autosport, Dale Coyne Racing, KV and Rahal are on Razia's short list.

The Barreiras native, however, insists he was not made his mind yet.

"Nothing is concrete actually," he told Totalrace. "I wanted to continue racing in Europe, but the situation is difficult at the moment. (…) DTM could be another option."

The 24-year-old's career took a hit early last year, when he lost his chance to debut in Formula One even before season got underway over sponsorship problems.
