courses! Why wearing no. 1 at Indy doesn’t always make or mean you’re a winner

Tradition is a big part of the Indianapolis 500. And one of the most storied racing traditions involves the right to use the number 1 on a driver’s car as the defending series champion.

This tradition dictates that the defending IndyCar series champion team gets exclusive use of the No. 1 on their championship-winning car for the following season — as it does in many other global racing series, like Formula 1, where champion Max Verstappen is carrying the No. 1 instead of his traditional #33 this season.
