Pumping Up Marco

While Marco Andretti’s father Michael had mixed emotions over his son’s Formula 1 testing debut with Honda this past December at Jerez, Grandpa Mario was very upbeat…

Mario could do nothing but sing the praises of his grandson, saying the kid’s got the “right stuff” for becoming a Formula 1 driver…

Mario says that he’ll accompany Marco to his next F1 test and is fairly certain that Marco will test again sometime in 2007. Mario commented on how Marco’s got the right physique for being a modern day Formula 1 driver…

In his best “BLOODY NIGE” (Nigel Mansell) impersonation… Mario noted how he’d like to sample a modern day Formula 1 chassis. Mario noted that the cockpits are a bit tighter than the days of his World Championship driving, but his shoulders aren’t that broad…

Perhaps you’ll recall that Il Leone’s (Mansell) backside became too large to fit into the McLaren chassis after his planned return to racing full time in Formula 1 for 1995…
