Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi says that it is so excited to be returning to Canada for the first time since 2019 where he finished on the podium. Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, the Californian commented saying:

“After two years away, it is so exciting to head back to Toronto. It’s always been such an amazing event and on top of that, the energy of the city is second to none. We’ve been on the podium there in the past and will be looking to do the same again this weekend.”

Colton Herta heads to Toronto this weekend following a two day Formula One test with the McLaren team in Portugal and speaking ahead of the race where in 2019, he finished seventh, Herta said:

“Excited to go back to Toronto after a long break from racing in Canada. We haven’t run since the implementation of the aeroscreen. So it’ll be interesting to see how that changes our data from the last time we went. Hopefully, we can get a good finish for the No. 26 Gainbridge Honda.”

Romain Grosjean in the No.28 DHL Honda is making his Toronto debut this weekend saying:

“I’m Looking forward to discovering Toronto. It will be my first time in the city and at the track. I loved going to Canada during my F1 career so I’m sure that theme will keep going with INDYCAR.”

Devlin DeFrancesco heads into his maiden home race with a special celebrity livery and speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:

“I’m looking forward to Toronto because it’s my home race. We have a lot of hype around this weekend. I’m excited about the work we’re doing around Sunnybrook Hospital and the, ‘Racing for the Tiniest Babies’ campaign. I’m also excited for the awesome work we’re doing with BitBuy. They’re not only my primary sponsor here they’ve given me support all year. I’m looking forward to having a good weekend in our Andretti Steinbrenner No. 29 BitBuy Honda.”

Andretti Autosport Chief Operating Officer Rob Edwards commented saying:

“We’re looking forward to another race weekend and looking forward to being back on the streets of Toronto. Canadian fans have such a great love of INDYCAR racing and we’ve missed sharing what we do with them over the last two years. Time to set that right.”
