Castroneves looking to beat Power, keep momentum
The three-time Indy 500 winner hasn’t had great success in Sao Paulo in the past, but he has two top-five finishes on the Anhembi track. His best finish was fourth last year. In 2011, he was involved in a series of incidents and came 21st, and in the inaugural race he was fifth.
Being at home, he knows the motivation will be there no matter what.
“Coming to Brazil it’s always nice because of the support from the public,” he said.
Tony Kanaan is another fan favorite in Sao Paulo, but he still isn’t sure whether he will be able to race on Sunday after injuring his right hand in the final laps of the race in Long Beach.
“I’m optimistic,” he said. “But I still don’t know how it’s going to be. We will have to wait until I get in the car tomorrow (Saturday.)”
If he is able to start on Sunday, it will be Kanaan’s 200th consecutive race in the series, second only to Jimmy Vasser’s 211.
