Fittipaldi keeps Haas links but wants fulltime program

Pietro Fittipaldi’s slim chances of finally getting a fulltime seat in Formula One evaporated quickly when Haas decided to hire Nico Hulkenberg to replace Mick Schumacher, but the Brazilian driver will remain linked to the American team for another year, as test and reserve driver, while accepting he’ll have to look elsewhere to get the full race program he’s been targeting for a few years. The Formula One dream is still alive for Fittipaldi, but for 2023 the main goal is to get a fulltime drive either in the WEC or in IndyCars: “I would love to go race IndyCar full-time for example. We’re trying to do that, but in IndyCar, for your first year you’re there it requires funding and we’re searching for the funding to be able to do that. But it’s requiring getting that full funding that is so difficult to get.
