Ed Carpenter Racing’s Rinus Veekay in the No.21 Sonax Chevrolet says that he has learned a lot from last season as he heads into his second year in IndyCar.
Speaking to Paddock Eye during media day, Veekay said he goes into year two with more confidence in that he feels like a veteran.
Veekay said he has learned a lot about the processes of IndyCar in terms of what the race weekend entails. Speaking about what he has learned Veekay said:
Well, I’ve learned that INDYCAR is one of the most competitive series in the world and you have to give it over 100 percent to be competitive and to get results. So yeah, that’s definitely something I’ve learned.
I expected it to be super tough, but this is next level. Yeah, as a driver, just experience. I’ve just learned about everything last year, every procedure, strategies, pit stops. I’m still learning a lot.
I’m feeling like a veteran now, so coming into the next season I will have a lot more time to think instead of time finding out what’s happening around me.
