Throughout Verizon IndyCar Series Media Day, each driver was asked one big key question – what would it mean to win the 100th Indianapolis 500? Juan Pablo Montoya kept his answer short and to the point.
“If you have to work harder because it’s the 100ths, then you haven’t been doing your job.”
Montoya knows what it takes to win the Indianapolis 500, having picked up the victory last season after an impressive late-race duel with Team Penske teammate Will Power. The battle marked no surprise to fans as Team Penske had shown speed across the various tracks throughout the season to date, in which came from a combination of a strong package from Chevrolet, and how well they work together as a group. The chemistry between the four drivers and working well is something that Montoya feels benefits them across the board.
