(AP) Sam Schmidt is content to wait another day before hiring a third driver for the Indianapolis 500.

The owner of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports told The Associated Press on Friday he has not hired a driver for the No. 99 car but might if his two other drivers safely qualify Saturday. Schmidt's other drivers are Simon Pageland, last year's IndyCar rookie of the year, and rookie Tristan Gautier. Both are from France.

Schmidt says a handful of drivers, including Britain's Katherine Legge, are interested in driving. Schmidt does not yet have sponsorship for the car, either.

Indy qualifying will be held Saturday and Sunday, with 33 driver-car combinations trying to make the May 26 race.
