Andretti starts his own team
Andretti has made it clear that his aim in racing now is to win the Indianapolis 500, an event he has so far failed to win in the course of his otherwise distinguished career.
The loss of Michael Andretti would deprive the series of its most famous driver and the possibility of Cristiano da Matta, the series leader, heading off to F1 is a further worry for those running CART.
Team Green will probably continue to run three cars in CART next year with BAR's test driver Anthony Davidson the likely third driver.
