James Hinchcliffe stays at Andretti IndyCar team

Speculation over James Hinchcliffe's IndyCar future has been brought to an end with confirmation that the Canadian has re-signed with Andretti Autosport.
Hinchcliffe, who has three race wins to his credit this year, will be supported by networking and broadband company UFC, with previous backer GoDaddy having confirmed that it will not return as a primary sponsor in 2014.
"I'm very happy to be back with Andretti Autosport," Hinchcliffe said. "The last two years have been tremendous, and we've spoken so much about the team chemistry, so being able to keep everyone together is huge.
"To have a deal done before the end of the season is well clear of the earliest deal I've had done in the past - I'm used to sweating long into the off-season - so it's a huge relief to get this locked up."
Confirmation of Hinchcliffe's deal, which is for a year with an option, follows Friday's announcement that Marco Andretti had also signed on to remain with the team.
