I would -- makes his next trip to the brickyard he won't be on the road course he will be making laps on the oval for the first time in his career. That's because this week the nineteen year Formula One that made it official he will compete for the 2012 IndyCar championship. Driving for KV racing. I'm here because I just love what they do and that's that's the passion and I'm I'm taking I'm just I just change addresses and if I'm in the cars as. Same speed and I have to learn although it was always going to be fantastic. Big guys always did -- from a one GP in that and he you know was indeed. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Question marks I was caused it to drive on the hill was in this and then SM well if you have questions you wanna do it so. Going to yourself so could have been to nearest ovals as well. We asked you last night on speed center -- do you think the transition will be for Rubens from Formula One. Over to IndyCar here if you are the responses. The man's got skills is what. Michael McClanahan says and then he will do better than Montoya is doing in stock cars nice. From John -- someone other than 11 lap but it's time and that's bat speed freakish. And Rubens Barrichello we didn't I agree so we'll love we'll see how it all goes and we'll find out very sin. When IndyCar opens their season I still can't get over I want an Indianapolis Michael Schumacher slowing up for the photo -- and it didn't work out we talk about Rubens Barrichello and he's gonna be -- some ovals everybody curious did you get a run full season we know he will. His first opportunity on -- noble the Indianapolis 500 what do you think about that. Well so a pretty big -- -- for sure -- series and get some testing time is gonna have the opportunity to go out there. Learn a little bit about the old rules he's got the most. Contact practice time Emanuel that you're gonna -- sat. It's a big step for sure and Indianapolis changes from your practice days -- race days. Everything seems to shrink up because you get all these fans in the stands in the place takes on a life. It really just comes alive. I would have to say one thing if the captain ever wants us to slow down and take a team photo -- -- -- second I wanna win that race by accident to happen I like the mentality. That you talk about Indianapolis mental mistake something that always seemed to play. A -- they're so how does Rubens manage expectations when it comes to his first start in the 500 why I think that's the key to it no matter to slap one. Or lap you know 180 it's all about making it to the end. Giving yourself that opportunity to have that good finish. And I mean there's been a lot of guys that came there first time didn't have big expectations took care of their car and found themselves in the lead. You know with the only couple laps to go and some guys and thrown it away and some guys have been able to win with -- -- I wouldn't expect him to have a bad race by any means the person that his -- to qualify that's force -- laps. And you get that car in the field Rubens Barrichello who's been on the big stage but never on -- pole at Indianapolis time will tell. How it all works out.
