Andretti wants to win 500 then join F1
15 December 2006 – Marco Andretti wants to win the Indy 500 race before he even thinks about switching to racing in the F1 championship. Andretti will get his first run in a Formula One car with Honda today.
"F1 is a big dream of mine," Andretti told the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper. "In a perfect world I'd like to win the Indy 500 and then come to Europe."
Honda has moved to insist the test is nothing more than a one-day trial and if things go well it could turn into something else, but the team is keen not to put pressure on Andretti at this stage.
