Andretti Autosport team owner Michael Andretti has confirmed that the outfit are working on running a four car outfit next season.

Andretti Autosport had a disappointing season in 2016, with rookie driver Alexander Rossi winning the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil in the Bryan Herta Autosport No.98 Honda.

Andretti has two drivers confirmed for 2017 with Ryan Hunter Reay recently signing a new contract with the team along with primary sponsor DHL.

Hunter Reay will be with the team until the end of 2020 season. Marco Andretti is also on a multi-year contract with the outfit and Andretti has confirmed that the team will have four cars next season once everything falls into place.

Andretti has even raised the possibility of running a five car entry in 2017 however he admits that this scenario is unlikely.

Andretti confirmed that the team are talking to Carlos Munoz and are very close to signing Alexander Rossi for another season, despite apparent interest from Team Penske for Rossi. Josef Newgarden is a free agent however he is likely to join Team Penske alongside champion Simon Pagenaud, Will Power and Helio Castroneves.

Andretti has confirmed that the team will be in a position to announce more details about 2017 in about a month or so.
