Andretti is still waiting to finalize its lineup while figuring out the future of James Hinchcliffe, the breakout three-time IndyCar winner this season. Andretti must lock down Hinchcliffe’s sponsorship from GoDaddy before deciding its future _ and Hinchcliffe is currently able to negotiate with other teams.

But Andretti has said he could even run five cars next season if Hinchcliffe returns and he finds sponsorship for Montoya. Although Montoya could be an immediate title contender in IndyCar with the right team and backing, his fellow drivers are eager to see what he could do in optimal conditions.

“I get to see what he’s capable of at Daytona 24 Hours every year,” Franchitti said. “I know how good he is, so it would be great to see him back.”
