Montoya expects big support at Indy
27 June 2006 – Juan Pablo Montoya is looking forward to the US Grand Prix, a race where he can expect a lot of support from his Colombian fans. After a disappointing result in Canada Montoya is looking forward to come up with a strong performance at The Brickyard.
"After my race in Canada, I cannot wait to get straight back on track this weekend, as the car felt really quick," said Montoya. "It is even better for me that we are at Indy this race and competing for the fans, who are amazing and I personally have awesome support from Colombia, so I am looking forward to getting out there and putting on a fantastic show for them."
"The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has such great memories for me from my days in CART and of course winning the Indy 500 in 2000, it is such a special venue, full of history and legend. The nature of the track, with the immense straight along the oval and the tight infield sees us use a medium to low downforce configuration to allow for the contrast in track style. The 1.7km section of the banked oval we use is the longest stretch we have at full throttle all season, it is pretty good fun as by the time you get to the end of the straight you really feel like you are going super fast because of the length of time!"
