|Dario will go down as the first Indy 500 winner in the|
DW12, an accolade many would love to have
DF: It will be very tough now to win the championship, past results on tracks have no bearing on current or future ones. Your question got me thinking so I checked, we've won on 11 of this years tracks and been on the podium at 13. To challenge for a championship you must be strong on all tracks because the guys you're fighting against will be!! This year has been one of those "if it could go wrong" type of seasons and we've made a couple of mistakes along the way too. Winning Indianapolis has been the high point in an otherwise fairly tough year, the trick is to learn from it and don't give up.
3) New schedule should be announced within the next two months. What track(s) would you like to see on the 2013 schedule?
DF: Road America, Loudon, Vancouver, Cleveland, Richmond, Phoenix, Homestead, surfers paradise, motegi oval and possibly pocono plus the tracks already on the schedule. I'm sure I've missed a couple.
4) Do you think Randy Bernard has done a good job as the CEO of Indycar?
While testing the Acura for highcroft at Sebring I passed the pits to find that my brother Marino had written me a message on the Dyson digital pit board, after I somehow made it through turn one I was laughing so hard I couldn't press the brakes hard enough and had a wee trip across the grass in turn 2!!!
Many thanks to Dario Franchitti for taking the time to do this interview with me! I am pumped to watch him make a run for the championship!
Let me know what you think.
