Verizon IndyCar Series driver James Hinchcliffe has no desire to run his own team in the championship when he eventually retires from racing.

Speaking to Paddock Eye during a press conference at the Canadian International Auto Show on Friday when asked if he would run his own team after spending time on the pit-wall last season the Canadian replied:

Absolutely not.

Hinchcliffe who will once again drive the No.5 Lucas Oil Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda Verizon IndyCar entry in 2016 was joined on stage at the Auto Show by Verizon IndyCar Series rival and former team mate Conor Daly.

Daly will drive a full time programme with Dale Coyne Racing with backing from Jonathan Byrd’s Racing.

When asked about whether or not he can win the 100th edition of the Indianapolis 500 in May Hinchcliffe replied:

That’s everybody’s dream, that’s what we are all gunning for. I really hope that all the hard work that the team has done, that Honda has done and that everyone has done over the off season pays off.
