Fans and members of the IndyCar paddock have been speculating whether or not Scott Dixon may be heading for retirement but he says otherwise.
The Chip Ganassi Racing driver turns 42 in July and is currently the fourth-oldest full-timer in IndyCar.
When asked about moving on from the sport during a media session earlier this week, Dixon said, “Honestly, I don’t see anything changing in what I’m doing currently for the next five years at least.”
Earlier this week rumours broke out that Dixon was potentially moving to Arrow McLaren SP for a managerial role. However, the Kiwi driver denies such claims.
“If people are having those conversations, I haven’t been a part of them. I love doing what I’m doing, I love being a part of the team that I’m with, and who knows what comes in the future?” he says.
Reports mentioned that a leadership role within the Arrow McLaren team would be on the cards if he were to step away from full-time racing.
“For me right now, it’s just about enjoying IndyCar, trying to win races and trying to get back to where we need to be. That’s where the focus is.
“After I’m done, I’d love to be part of the sport, but what that means and in what capacity, I really have no idea,” Dixon added.
There are 18 months remaining on his current contract with Chip Ganassi Racing which Dixon hopes to extend into the future.
