Rumor has it that former CART driver (Fittipaldi-Dingman team 2003) Tiago Montiero from Portugal may run the Indy 500 for Andretti Autosport. The former F1 driver, Montiero, finished third for Honda in last year's World Touring Car Championship and of course Andretti is a top Honda team in IndyCar. He is the only Portuguese driver to have scored a Formula One podium finish.
