Chilton stays in IndyCar with Ganassi
7 December 2016 – Max Chilton will remain in the IndyCar series with Chip Ganassi Racing in 2017.
Chilton, 25, made the switch from Formula 1 to IndyCar last season, recording a best result of seventh at the Phoenix oval event, and placing 19th in the championship standings.
He will again race alongside Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan and Charlie Kimball.
"I think we were able to build a solid foundation in my rookie year in the IndyCar series with the support of [primary sponsor] Gallagher and the team," explained the Briton.
"The learning curve is very steep here, and the field is separated by just a few seconds from top to bottom with really talented teams and drivers, which makes the competition incredibly close.
"Having a year of experience to adapt to the car and learn all of the courses is huge for us.
"Chip and Gallagher give us everything we need to be competitive and go out to contend for wins, so I'm optimistic for the direction of the No. 8 Gallagher team heading into next season."
Chilton made 35 starts in Formula 1 with the Marussia team.
