Former Verizon IndyCar Series champion Simon Pagenaud says he believes that his Penske team mate Josef Newgarden will be a tremendous champion.
Pagenaud won Sunday’s season ending GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma just ahead of Newgarden but Newgarden won the championship, his first and in his debut season as a Penske driver.
Speaking during the champions media tour this week, Newgarden said that he wanted to beat to Pagenaud to win.
My instinct when I saw him is I want to beat him.
Team Penske dominated the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season winning ten of the seventeen races.
Each of the Captain’s four drivers won races this season.
