McLaren Boss Says Montoya Makes Team Stronger For Indy 500

McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown said on Friday that Juan Pablo Montoya carries something beyond experience to the enclosure at the Indianapolis 500 and makes his partners better on account of his capacity to shout out. 

Montoya, a double cross Indianapolis 500 hero who will make his re-visitation of the race on Sunday interestingly since 2017, will direct the third Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet to collaborate with full-time drivers Pato O'Ward and Felix Rosenqvist. 

The 45-year-old Montoya, no outsider to McLaren Racing as he dashed for the group in Formula One out of 2005 and 2006, has heaps of involvement, is seriously aggressive and open to offering input that O'Ward and Rosenqvist couldn't lucid. 

"Whenever you get somebody with Juan's experience that benefits your different drivers," Brown told journalists. "They only sort of watch how he conveys and I figure they can take in a considerable amount from him and I believe that has been occurring." 

The appearance of Colombian Montoya, who won his first Indianapolis 500 as a newbie in 2000 and his second 15 years after the fact, decidedly affects O'Ward and Rosenqvist in front of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." 

"We have three cheerful drivers," said Brown. "We have three quick hustling vehicles and are anticipating rivaling everybody on Sunday which will almost certainly be perhaps the most cutthroat Indy 500s ever." 

Montoya, O'Ward and Rosenqvist will be important for the 33-vehicle field hurdling around the renowned 2.5 mile oval and Brown said the threesome had a decent last meeting on Friday and had a positive outlook on their odds on Sunday. 

"We have three vehicles equipped for dominating the race," said Brown. "Sadly, I think there are around 15 different vehicles fit for dominating the race ... our drivers are prepared for it and I think we have a decent shot."
