James Hinchcliffe will pilot the No. 26 Gainbridge Honda for Andretti Autosport for the remainder of the 2020 season, following Zach Veach‘s departure from the team on Wednesday.
Hinchcliffe has already run three events with Andretti this season, piloting the No. 29 Genesys Honda for the season opening Genesys 300 at Texas Motor Speedway, the GMR Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, and the Indianapolis 500.
The “Mayor of Hinchtown” also raced for Andretti from 2012 to 2014, and team owner Michael Andretti credits their relationship with the Canadian driver as the reason why he was chosen.
“It’s always unfortunate to have to change drivers this far into a season, but we have to look at finishing the year the best we can for the 26 team and start evaluating and looking at options for 2021,” Andretti said.

So, how does their Ochain […]
Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN is looking to build on the team’s encouraging results from the past two races in Italy at this weekend’s Russian Grand Prix at the Sochi Autodrom.
Kimi Raikkonen picked up two points at the Tuscan Grand Prix, two weekends ago, it was the much needed boost the team needed after a tepid start to the 2020 season.
Kimi has not had much luck at Sochi in the past but the Finn is not going to let it get in the way of pushing forward for the second half of the season. He said: “I don’t have many good memories about racing in Sochi as for some reason it’s always been a fairly unlucky track for me. However, I am not someone who looks at past form too much: my focus is on having a good weekend and [to] get the most of what our … Read the rest
Do you feel like you have outperformed the car this season, making the difference?
Charles Leclerc: “Overall this year I feel myself in a very good form, better than last year. I am trying to push the car at its limit in every session which helped my consistency. Surely I made mistakes sometimes, but there are also races where I took the risks and it worked out. We managed to do some podiums, lucky or not, we managed to do some podiums. I am happy with how the season is going on my side but there is still a lot to do. Last year I was pushing in qualifying, but there was a bit more left in FP1/FP2/FP3. Now I try to extract the maximum out of the car all the time and it seems to work for now.”
