Europe’s ultra-competitive open-wheel racing ladder. Before making the switch
to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Grosjean recorded 10 podium-finishes, twice
finishing a career-best second, and finished as high as seventh in the Formula
One Championship standings. Grosjean has made quite the splash in his first
year of American open-wheel racing, recording one pole, three podiums, four
top-five finishes, leading over 50 laps and making his oval debut.

“I’m delighted to be
joining Andretti Autosport and driving the No. 28 DHL Honda for next season,”
said Grosjean. “It’s a big honor to be joining such a great team as Andretti,
anyone in the motorsport world knows the name Andretti. I’m super happy and
proud to be racing with the team. I’m also very proud to be representing with
DHL. I’ve known the DHL color on racing cars for a very long time. I couldn’t
be more proud to represent such a great company in INDYCAR. I’m hoping that we
are going to be very successful together, which is our aim on every side. I
would like also to thank Dale Coyne Racing for giving me the opportunity to
join INDYCAR. I’ve enjoyed the racing so much and it’s given me the change
today to be racing with one of the most competitive and best teams in the
