Andretti Autosport owner Michael Andretti has issuws a deadline of next week for McLaren and Zak Brown to give him a definitive answer aa to whether or not they will be competing in the Verizon IndyCar Series as a full-time entrant in 2019.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Honda Indy 200 at Mid Ohio Andretti said that decisions need to be made so that he can put things together for 2019.

Andretti has also confirmed that he would love to see Fernando Alonso compete full-time in the Verizon IndyCar Series next season.
