IN HIS OWN WORDS:

(About the atmosphere at his new team in 2017, Dale Coyne Racing): "The spirit on the team is really good. With Dale's commitment, his financial contribution, his drive for racing and his consistency over the years, we've got a solid foundation. Even if the progress is slower than it might be on the bigger teams, as long as you keep moving forward and add to what you're trying to do and don't go backward, you can do a lot of things with not so much."
