Conor Daly has been replaced at Venezuela GP Lazarus heading into Monza this weekend.

Indianapolis, IN - American Conor Daly learned early on Tuesday morning that Venezuela GP Lazarus had replaced him for the upcoming weekend in Monza, Italy. It was not a total surprise as the team had informed him after Spa that they were in need of additional funding. 

Daly comments

"I'm naturally disappointed but thankful for the opportunity that Venezuela GP Lazarus provided me this season," said Daly. "Lazarus is a great team of people who race because of their love of the sport and I wish them every success in the future." Daly was not in a position to provide additional funding to the team and therefore had to step aside.
 2014 marks the fourth season of European racing for Daly who spent three years racing in GP3, and this season in GP2. Daly won two races and stood on the podium eleven times and scored one pole in the past two years racing in GP3. He finished third in the GP3 Championship in 2013. 
 
"Europe for the past four years has been a an invaluable experience for me," said Daly. "It was a sacrifice well worth making because I know today that I am a better driver because of it. I'm ready for my future, whatever it may be."

A future in IndyCar?

Daly attended the recent Fontana IndyCar weekend as he pursues all options for the 2015 season. "I want to be a professional race car driver and be in a position to take advantage of any opportunity that might come my way," commented Daly.
