Aston Martin team owner Lawrence Stroll will welcome Andretti Motorsport’s entry into Formula 1. Team owner Michael Andretti is rumored to be interested in taking over Alfa Romeo and Stroll understands that.
Recently, there have been rumors that the Alfa Romeo Formula 1 team will take charge of Andretti Motorsport in the short term. Michael Andretti has a strong motorsports portfolio with teams in IndyCar, IMSA, Extreme E, Formula E and Australian Supercars and has long been interested in a Formula 1 team. He will focus on three potential teams.
It is related to the American company Haas, which is owned by Gene Haas and Williams, which was acquired by Dorilton Capital and Alfa Romeo last year. Andretti is rumored to be in advanced talks with the owner of Alfa Romeo Islero Investments. Lawrence Stroll, owner of Aston Martin after buying the struggling Force India car in 2018, is said to welcome the Andretti family into Formula 1.

“Andretti is a great name,” Stroul told the news agency. Reuters. “I know the family and I think they would be a great addition to the sport, if that’s true. I don’t know much about it other than hearing that something is going on in the track. I think they set up a special purpose acquisition company in the States and said they wanted to buy something in motorsports. I totally understand that, and I see the logic in it,” Al Kindi said.
If it comes down to it, IndyCar driver Colton Herta will be in the picture for the seat. The 21-year-old American, who drives Andretti Autosport, has been a trendsetter in IndyCar this season and will also be interested in Formula 1, but first he has to get enough points to get the necessary super licence.

Mario Andretti, the head of the family, would like to see the American in Formula 1. “He also won the right way, fast and good strategy. The last race he won was in Long Beach and he started from P14, I gave him less than 30 per cent chance of winning but he came out on top. “He has it,” Andretti said, “the qualities of someone who only comes once every ten years, I’d like to see how he would do in Formula 1.”.
