IndyCar: Tony Kanaan and Alex Tagliani get seat time

2013 Indianapolis 500 winner, Tony Kanaan and Alex Tagliani Wednesday joined Ganassi's regular drivers, Scott Dixon and Charlie Kimball for a private test session at the Sebring road course.

For Kanaan, it was his first ever outing with his new team, and his first priority was just to settle in.

"It's my first day on the job, so it's still a little weird," he said. "I'm actually trying to listen more than I'm talking. If I can bring something extra to improve what they already have, then great."

Veteran Canadian driver, Alex Tagliani was also on hand to drive the No.10 Chevrolet Dallara formerly driven by Dario Franchitti.

"Tag", who replaced Franchitti at the 2013 season’s finale at Fontana was called upon to take part in this testing session but the Ganassi team has yet to announce a replacement for the three-time Indy 500 winner and four-time series champion.

The test was Team Ganassi's first opportunity to work with Chevrolet following its decision to part with previous engine supplier Honda. Kanaan has previous experience with Chevrolet through his years with KV.
