Juan Pablo Montoya. Verizon Team Penske driver
AFTER LEADING A RACE-HIGH 85 LAPS, WHY DID THE HANDLING GO AWAY IN THE VERIZON CHEVY? “Honestly, I thought we had a car that could have won the race tonight; it was that fast. We had an issue with the weight-jacker in the car and it took us most of the race to dial in the handling. But once we got it right the Verizon Chevy was as fast as anyone. I’m proud of the number of laps we led tonight, just like I’m proud of the effort that the guys put in all year. I hate that the season is already over and I can’t wait to get back on track to test the new aero kits. We are going to come out of the gates stronger than this season and I really feel that we can compete for the Verizon IndyCar Series title in 2015. Congrats to Will (Power) on the championship this year. He deserves it.”
Juan Pablo Montoya finished 4th on the final race at Fontana, and 4th respectively on the Championship. Juan wants to thank the fans, the team and his sponsors on his open wheel comeback, and from now he is preparing for 2015 season where he will come back stronger than ever.
SONOMA “It was a good weekend for the Verizon Chevy. I knew we had a really good car and that’s why I was a bit upset that we weren’t able to start up front yesterday. If we could’ve been in the top five, even in the top 10, I think we could be talking about a different result here today. But, unfortunately, I put us in a bit of a hole in qualifying. This Chevrolet was really, really fast today. I passed a lot of people and had a blast. We are no longer in the title fight, but we are going to Auto Club Speedway next weekend with one goal and that’s winning the race.”
