    It's garbage. Means nothing these days to win an IndyCar championship. Absolutely nothing. Nobody gives a rats ass that Newgarden won the title, not in the motorsports world, nor amongst the ans.

    You realize that winning the title automatically qualifies one for an FIA Super Licence?

    Emerson Fittipaldi - 1 Championship 22 WINS!!!

    Josef Newgarden - 1 Championship 7 wins.

    Josef isn't even near in the realm of these guys yet his piece of hardware now says otherwise. I wish they would do away with this joke.
    Oh come on man, you sound like TeamChevy. Just watch the 500 and tune out for the other 11 1/2 months.

    You're comparing Josefs short career against drivers that fought for years against some insane levels of competition who were in top teams the majority of their career. Hell only Andretti never drove for Penske in that list. Josef has been in the series 5 years and only one of those in a Top team (which ECR ISN'T). He managed to best three incredibly accomplished team mates who are also arguably three of the best drivers in Indycar, including Power who is in your list with 32 wins and Helio who despite 23 wins, three indy 500's in 16 years never managed to win a championship.
