Indianapolis 500 winner Alexander Rossi says he is unclear about his racing future holds. Bryan Herta has said that a deal for the American to stay in the Verizon IndyCar Series in 2017 should be concluded within the next few weeks, however Rossi who is also contracted to the Manor Formula One team is unsure what will happen.
Rossi who as well as being a Verizon IndyCar Series driver with Andretti Autosport is also the Manor F1 Team’s reserve driver with the Californian saying that should the outfit need a replacement driver he could be called on to take the race seat.
There is continued uncertainty surrounding Rio Haryanto’s future with Manor however when asked if he will drive at the US Grand Prix in Texas, Rossi said that it is unlikely.
Rossi confirmed that he is focused on the Verizon IndyCar Series with Andretti Autosport as there are races remaining this season and he stated that he will go from Sonoma to the UK for seat fitting with Manor.
Rossi has also confirmed that he is only speaking with Michael Andretti and Bryan Herta and that if he remains in the Verizon IndyCar Series next season it will be with Andretti/Herta.
