Juncos Hollinger Racing’s Agustin Canapino who is entering his second season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES says he now has an idea of what he needs to do in 2024 after a successful rookie season in 2023.
The Argentinian was very fast during 2023 and had some really strong results and stand-out performances this season is joined by Romain Grosjean at the team who has the experience of working with a large team having been with Andretti Global from 2022-23 and has been on the podium and along with NTT P1 Awards.
Grosjean also has extensive experience from his time competing in Formula One. Speaking during Wednesday’s opening INDYCAR SERIES content day, Canapino said:
I don’t know if relaxed is the correct sentence. I think now I know more what I have to do because now I have the way to prepare my physical, my races. I learn a lot about the car, the tires, the brakes, the way to manage the races, the other drivers, the rules. I learn a lot, everything.
Of course it’s only the beginning, but now I have an idea what I have to do.
Speaking about his imminent second season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES with Juncos Hollinger Racing, Canapino said:
I am really excited, especially by the way we finished the season, because we were battling for a podium on the last race in Laguna just before the crash. We were fourth, and we were in a really good position to battle for the race.
We did really good moments during the year. We achieved decent results for our first season in INDYCAR. We entered in the leader circles with the two cars. First time ever Juncos had two cars in a season, first time ever for me, so I’m really happy with the season so far.
But we want more, and I think we have a really good opportunity this year to continue our improvement, continue both with the team and especially with Romain in the team.
I think we have a really good opportunity to learn from him everything and continue this process.
