IN HIS OWN WORDS:

“I’ve followed INDYCAR more and more the past three years on TV. I liked the racing a lot, the fact that INDYCAR is running on ovals, street circuits and on road courses is great. The circuits have less runoff area, not like some tracks that we have in Europe. I really like the pure racing effect that INDYCAR has and I’m really looking forward to it.”
