The Andretti Autosport Verizon IndyCar Series team revealed their car liveries on Thursday ahead of the opening day of testing at the Phoenix International Raceway.
While the respective paint schemes are similar to last year reflecting each cars primary sponsor, this year each car will carry a uniquely colored stripe to symbolize each of the three generations of IndyCar drivers that pair the Andretti name, starting with Mario, team founder and chairman, Michael and of course Marco Andretti.
Michael Andretti commented by saying:
As we enter a historic season of Indy car racing, with the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500, I’m proud to be able to bring this design element into our field of cars,” said Andretti Autosport owner Michael Andretti. “My father was an inspiration to me in my career, and remains an inspiration and major supporter to our industry. To carry a little history with us is something special.
Andretti Autosport retains Ryan Hunter Reay, Marco Andretti and Carlos Munoz for 2016 as well as adding former F1 test and reserve driver Alexander Rossi who will drive the No.98 former Bryan Herta Autosport Honda which was merged into the Andretti Autosport organisation last week.
