Let's start with the bad news: noted cucumber Narain Karthikeyan is expected to join the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series grid in Dale Coyne Racing's second car. This also means that either Jules Bianchi or Adrian Sutil has joined Sahara Force India's F1 team, winning a seat that was known to be available to the highest bidder and the highest bidder only. The good news? as I understand it, Ryan Briscoe will run in the American Le Mans Series with a prominent team in 2013. No word on what team it is, but if I'm to take a bet, I'd say it's either Panoz (who will be running a Deltawing part time) or Level 5 (who, depsite initially confirming a sitting out of the 2013 ALMS LMP2 championship, will run two HPD ARX-03bs in the ALMS full time).
