ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. —
They’ll both be challenged internally from their own teammates: Helio Castroneves at Penske Racing, and Hunter-Reay from James Hinchcliffe, who enters his second season with Andretti and was fast at Barber testing.
Andretti faces some other issues headed into 2013 as the team expands to its traditional four-car lineup with the addition of E.J. Viso and works to get Marco Andretti on the same pace as Hunter-Reay and Hinchcliffe. The addition of Viso could be interesting because the chemistry between the three Andretti drivers clicked last season, and he’s coming in at a time when a lot of energy is being given to putting Marco Andretti’s bad luck behind him.
“There is no question that I need to up my game on the streets,” Andretti said. “I went overseas with a driver coach and everything. You can never be too proud. You can always learn something.”
