A driver is considered a rookie in the IndyCar series during a given season if the driver has
1) not participated in more than four races during an IndyCar season, and
2) participated in less than eight IndyCar races in their career.

Pietro Fittipaldi will be racing in IndyCar full-time for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing in 2024.
While many may consider him a rookie, he in fact appears on my
2018 IndyCar Rookie List where he
raced in 6 races and then raced in 3 more, including the Indy 500, in 2019.  So he is technically not an
IndyCar rookie.  
WHAT HE HAS BEEN DOING SINCE:
He finished 5th in the 2019 F3 Asian championship.  
He has been a reserve driver for the Haas Formula 1 team since 2020.  
He competed in two F1 races in 2020 for them.  
He has also had some races in sports cars in the LMP2 class.
With girlfriend Georgie Young
He got screwed after winning the 2022 Indy Lights
championship when Penske took over and suddenly
cut his earned $1 million IndyCar scholarship in half.
That crippled his move to IndyCar in 2023.
