With a total of six years since his last win, and nearly two years since his last top five finish, Marco Andretti easily has one of the worst records of any full-time Verizon IndyCar Series driver.
But with speculation running rampant as to who may be going where next season, the 30-year-old has made it clear he’s going nowhere.
Late this week, IndyCar Radio reporter Tony Donohue tweeted that Andretti could be moving to sports car racing and an Indianapolis 500 only effort for 2018.
The tweet has since drawn a rash of criticism from fans of the driver, with some questioning Donohue’s credibility.
After exiting first practice early at the Honda Indy Toronto, Andretti was questioned by IndyCar Radio on the matter, to which he responded emphatically “I’m going nowhere.”
With a number of talented drivers potentially entering free agency this offseason, it would make sense for Andretti Autosport to add some more experienced drivers to the mix.
However, it’s rather unlikely that Michael Andretti is going to be making any improvements to the team, should they come at the expense of his son’s career as a full-time IndyCar Series driver.
