Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon, driver of the No.9 PNC Bank Honda says that he is happy where he is and is going nowhere amid recent reports linking him with a move to Arrow McLaren SP.
Speaking during a conference call ahead of this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sportscar course, the New Zealander said he has not spoken to McLaren and is certain none of his team have either.
Dixon also put to bed any rors that he plans to hang up his helmet anytime soon as he is enjoying Racing in the NTT IndyCar Series with Chip Ganassi Racing saying that he plans to be in the sport for at least another 4 or 5 years.
The Ganassi driver who is sixth in the championship, 69 points behind his team-mate and championship leader Marcus Ericsson who won the Indianapolis 500 last month said that the 500 was obviously a missed opportunity for the No.9 team.
Dixon said that other than team owner Chip Ganassi and Managing Director Mike Hull, there has been wholesale changes within the Ganassi organisation this season.
The New Zealander said that the main focus is to win the championship for Chip Ganassi Racing and that they just need to iron out some of the recent mistakes that have been made.
Dixon will be hoping to get some momentum to start the second half of the season with as he aims for his seventh championship.
