Andretti Global owner, chairman, and CEO Michael Andretti has revealed that his team aims to run their 2023-spec Formula One car in the wind tunnel next week.
Andretti Global was recently given the green light by Formula One’s governing body the FIA to compete in Formula One but the organization has been accused by rival teams of attempting to dilute the prize money fund.
Speaking to Sky Sports F1HD in Austin on Friday ahead of this weekend’s United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas, Andretti said that he hopes to be on the grid competing in either 2025 or realistically in 2026.
Andretti Global has begun construction of a new global racing HQ in Fishers Indiana. Speaking during the broadcast, Mario Andretti said that he is proud of what Michael has achieved in motorsports and that they want to make it to the pinnacle of motorsport. Michael Andretti said that he hopes that the team would bring more to Formula One than they would take away and he is delighted about the sport that the project has received from the fans.
When Danica Patrick, Andretti’s former INDYCAR SERIES driver asked him about drivers for the F1 project, Michael said that there is Colton Herta who has tested for McLaren but that there is the issue with him getting enough points for his mandatory FIA Super Licence points.
