Michael Andretti expects approval to enter Formula 1: “We are very close”

Michael Andretti hopes to hear from Formula 1 within a few weeks whether Andretti Autosport can compete in the premier class. The legendary American’s team has been successful in IndyCar for decades and recently looks to expand into Formula E, racecross, Supercars championship in Australia and Extreme E and international motorsport.

Andretti Autosport owner and 1991 IndyCar champion Michael Andretti plans to enter Formula 1 after more than a year and a half as former F1 driver Senna’s teammate at McLaren. “Hopefully we’ll hear that in the next few weeks. That would be a nice Christmas present,” Andretti said Indie Star About F1’s endorsement. “It’s not about IndyCar. We want to do something that’s never been done before. We want to compete in all kinds of motorsports, from Le Mans to Monaco, from the Indy 500 to the Daytona 500. And in the future, we want to be all under one roof. That’s our big goal, to get there. We have made plans.”


Red Bull is still reportedly open to selling sister team AlphaTauri, but Andretti no longer plans to take over the existing team. “No, they’re not interested,” said the son of 1978 F1 champion Mario. “But we work every day [om het elfde team op de grid te worden]. I still have faith in that. We are close. We haven’t got the ‘OK’ signal yet, but we’re very close.” A year ago, plans Alfa Romeo and decay.

[over dat Formula One Management erop tegen is om de grid uit te breiden], often doesn’t tell the whole story. There’s a lot of conversation going on and we’re not trying to rush or use the media as a tool to influence anything. A certain attitude is expected from them and we respect that.
