How will Arrow McLaren get on having expanded to three full-time cars with the addition of Alexander Rossi from Andretti Autosport over the off-season.
How will Kyle Kirkwood get on now that he has joined Andretti Autosport as Alexander Rossi’s replacement.
Team Penske’s Will Power goes into the new season as the defending NTT IndyCar Series champion so he will be hoping he is in a position to challenge for back to back titles.
