Verrrrrrrry interesting. I was surprised when this was first... I guess "announced" isn't quite the right word? I can't imagine Michael Andretti being particularly receptive to Sato's crashiness, but I guess we'll see.

If you read the article there were no actual quotes confirming Sato, only that he'd been talking to multiple Honda teams.

Good, so next time I refer to the IRL or IndyCar you won't have a problem with either.

Providing there is appropriate context and consistency The FOM / CVC example for Formula 1 was a great example and comparison for future discussions

You already mentioned context and consistency in your previous post. Therefore, as there's no need to go round in circles and perpetuate this, it's time to move on, as I'm sure others reading and posting on this thread are getting a tad bored with this.

I certainly am and it is also completely off topic.

To get back on topic, do you think further driver/car combinations will be confirmed before the end of the year. As of today, Sato to Andretti, Aleshin remaining at Schmidt, the 4th Ganassi, the KV car and the road/street portion of the split schedule of the 2nd Ed Carpenter Racing car are not yet confirmed.

Also, do you think KV Racing Technologies will run as many cars at the Indy 500 next year as they did this year. To be honest, with that team's current situation, I'm afraid it might be hard to find enough teams to get 33 entries on the entry list for the Indy 500.

All of them except KV will be confirmed by year's end. We've already seen most of the grid in place within 2 months of the season ending, which is a big improvement over 2015.

They ran 2 cars this year (including the #61 in conjunction with Team Murray), don't see why that would change in 2017.

Alex K has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Serralles is testing in Abu Dhabi, he's test schedule is quite busy this off season, but I really doubt he'd bother if he had something solid with #8, or other teams that have seats opened. And re. #25 AA I wrote in Indy Lights thread... although Sato has insufficient funds, or maybe Michael is waiting for someone like Stoneman to come up?!

Your guess is as good as mine on where Serralles goes for 2017.

Andretti have been talking to Sato, Aleshin and probably other drivers we don't know about - as the man (Rob Edwards) said, an announcement is due before the winter break.

When did he hold talks with Aleshin? Russian has been signed last month with SPM.

What source says he is signed?

Clearly not the one on the wiki page. Aleshin himself hasn't said anything about it. Nothing on the team website about extending with Aleshin or SMP yet.

It was reported Aleshin had re-signed with SPM but it turns out this this is not the case.

So, do we think Aleshin is in talks with Andretti Autosport? That wouldn't be a bad idea, not bad at all.

Certainly an interesting idea.

If I were Andretti Autosport, I would pick Aleshin over Sato and if I were SMP I would pick Aleshin over Sato. That could explain the delay in both drivers being signed.
