Stefan Wilson gave up his seat at Andretti Autosport to make space for Fernando Alonso in May, and after a busy summer of trying to secure a ride for next year’s Indy 500, the Briton says he’s planning on being in the Field of 33.
“Things are looking pretty positive that we should be back in May next year,” Wilson told RACER. “Can’t say too much more at this moment, but feel really determined to get back there and put on a good performance.”
Although Wilson wouldn’t be drawn on where he’ll drive, Andretti Autosport would be the leading destination to consider. Confirmation of his 2018 plans could come before the holidays.
“I think all the signs are pointing to the next couple of weeks; hopefully before Thanksgiving, to tell people,” he said. “It’s going to be nice to have something solidified and know where I stand before the winter activities.”
