“We consider McLaren would be a profitable further to a IndyCar paddock,” a orator for Andretti Autosport told The Drive. “Our partnership for a 2017 Indy 500 valid to be successful and we would acquire a event to work with them again.”
Meanwhile, a Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing orator went true to a point: “We are not commenting on that.”
As Andretti Autosport forked out to us, final year’s partnership with McLaren and their luminary motorist Fernando Alonso was a successful one in terms of on-track success and altogether media exposure. Alonso’s competition might have been cut brief due to a automatic failure, though a approach means of a Spaniard’s retirement wasn’t something McLaren or Andretti Autosport could’ve finished anything about. All fingers forked during Honda’s unreliability in 2017.
Would we acquire McLaren on a IndyCar grid subsequent year? Let us know in a comments section.
Stay tuned for some-more boots-on-the-ground coverage from The Drive from now until a 102nd using of a Indy 500 on Memorial Day Weekend.
