British driver Justin Wilson is set to compete in the remainder of the IndyCar championship with Andretti Autosport and will join up with the team at this weekend's race at the Milwaukee Mile circuit.

"It's obviously great to be back with Andretti Autosport for the remainder of the season," said Wilson. "I'm really looking forward to making the most of these five races, and just trying to help the team and Honda as much as I can and try and be successful.

"It's not going to be easy jumping in toward the end of the year," he admitted. "Everyone's worked out what they're looking for from the car and the aero kits, but I think it puts us in good shape for learning things and trying to progress... and hopefully set something up towards next year.
