Driver quote:

"I'm excited to be here in Sao Paulo. The race here last year was my first ever IndyCar race. We did pretty well and even got into lead for a few laps.

I really like the racetrack - it's a lot of fun and the Brazilian fans are awesome. They're extremely supportive and that's something pretty cool, so I can't wait to get out there."
