We’ll be doing a statistical breakdown of all of the drivers who ran in the 2014 IndyCar season, starting from the back of the points standings and ending with the championship winner, Will Power. To view all of the driver breakdowns, click here.
Sebastien Saavedra had a season to forget in 2014, never finishing a race above ninth. Saavedra did achieve one pole position start this year, which came at the Indianapolis G.P. (which he would crash out of on lap one). His best result came at Long Beach where he was able to put his KVAFS racing machine into the top ten and lead three lap during the race. Birmingham was the only other track where he was able to lead laps in 2014 (14 in total).
Crashing and mechanical failures were both big troubles for the Colombian. He crashed out in two of the races in 2014 and had mechanical failures in another three. All but one of these DNF’s saw him finish outside of the top 20, causing him to lose valuable points.
Sebastien Saavedra has no official plans or drive for 2015 yet, but his future in IndyCar is questionable after finishing outside 20th in the standings for the fifth year in a row.
