Alexander Rossi has revealed that he is sussing up two potential Formula One drives for next season as well as a potential IndyCar race seat.

The American currently acts as the reserve driver for the Manor F1 team and races in a joint Andretti Autosport/Bryan Herta Autosport entry in IndyCar which allowed him to take an unexpected win at the Indy 500.

While speaking with Autosport, Rossi said “I have options both in IndyCar and Formula 1 for 2017. There have been talks with Manor for a race seat and we’ve also been approached by another F1 team that’s quite interesting.

“There are options in IndyCar that I can’t elaborate on, but I can say Andretti and I have a great working relationship,” Rossi confirmed.

Rossi did have the opportunity to race in Formula One for the second half of the current season. However, due to conflicts with his IndyCar schedule, the 24-year-old opted to remain in the U.S. series.

“My management and I are in constant communications with Manor and we knew there might be an opportunity to race for the last half of the 2016 season. We gave it careful thought but declined the race seat due to my IndyCar contract,” he said.
