I have to accept risk as a racing driver.
I based in Brazil, Sao Paulo, but I come very often to the states, and I travel all over the world.
To race Formula three is very high risk and I am not going to take a chance. Thank god I am not doing it!
I think with new president Chris Pook of CART, he is very active and strong.
I go to see grand prix every year, and I watch every race on TV for sure. I probably go to three or four CART races and three or four Formula One races.
Indy car racing is much more aggressive.
I was extremely lucky. I had some huge crashes and yet I am still here, thanks to God.
A racing driver has to be a good driver.
You have to visualize a second or two ahead of your car what line you are taking, what you are going to do, before you get there because it comes too fast.
The racing driver's mind has to have the ability to have amazing anticipation, coordination, and reflex. Because of the speed the car goes.
