Schmidt Peterson Motorsports co-owner Sam Schmidt has refused to comment on reports that his team’s deal with Calmel Sports for the 2018 Indianapolis 500 has collapsed.

Reports emerging from the US tonight, suggest that the deal which was announced earlier this year where Tristan Gommandy was set to drive the No.77 Honda at the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil has collapsed as a result of poor publicity surrounding the deal.

If the deal has indeed collapsed it would mean that there is an extra seat available at Schmidt Peterson Motorsports for the Indianapolis 500 alongside James Hinchcliffe and Robert Wickens.

Paddock Eye understands that two time Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya is the leading candidate to drive for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports during the month of May.
