Wow. Yeah. Not at all especially after his 500 "month" last year. On that note, how much success can be had at the speedway as a one off?

But it will be nice to have some actual talent in his seat

Wheldon, Busch and Alonso have done pretty well in recent years. Ok, Marco is neither of those but he'll be ok I think.

True on both counts.
I can only think of Graham offhand, '66. But even that was only against the remaining 2/3s of the field.

It's probably for the best that Marco cuts down his programme. Such a shame he has never lived up to his initial promise

So much for me thinking Marco Andretti would continue with Andretti Herta Autosport with Marco & Curb-Agajani. IMO If it wasn't for the Andretti name. he would have gone long ago. Pole at Indy last year was his first tangible result, since winning at Iowa in 2011. It will be interesting to see who gets the drive in the #98 car for the rest of the season.

Hopefully Marco's car continues full-time with some decent road racer.

I remember seeing marco and Graham rahal in star mazda at road atlanta as a support series for petit le mans. Rahal started first, or at least top 3, and won. But marco started dead last, (33 cars) and was putting on a show. Always taking slightly different lines than the others, and ran all the way up to about 7th in a 45 minute all green flag race. I was sold then.

I'm guessing the "hunger" or "need" to make it is what ultimately let him down. Or maybe he just always had top level cars for the series and they flattered him more than his driving. But it is a disappointing career for what he looked like he was headed for.

So.... according to paul tracy, time to sign him up for uber?

There's an interesting piece from Robin Miller on Marco Andretti. Incidentally, he'll be 34 in March. Romain Grosjean, who is tipped for a drive with A.J. Foyt, will be 35 in April. It's not as if Marco Andretti is over the hill.

Video I got from the last two days of most of the teams testing at Sebring. Of note, besides Jimmie Johnson being there is Marco Andretti behind the wheel of #29.

Thanks for sharing that. It is crazy to see indycars on the bumps, they look very unpleasant to drive in a couple of those angles!
