The Mayor makes his mark in Brazil!

Posted

The last Canadian to win in Brazil was Greg Moore in Rio on May 10, 1998. Hinchcliffe becomes the reigning Canadian winner with today’s win in Sao Paulo, Brazil after a last-lap pass placed him in the lead. The Toronto native sits fourth in the championship points standings after his second win of the season, as well as his career.

“There’s no cooler way to win a race than the last corner of the last lap. Heluva job that Takuma (Sato) did to be up there, and man, he was making his car really wide. We both had one push-to-pass left coming to that last corner. He’d been defending the inside pretty well – almost too well a couple of times. He just out-broke himself a little bit. I know he was going to go deep, and we did the high-low and got the win. Awesome job for GoDaddy, Andretti (Autosport) and everybody.”27JamesHinchcliffeWinsSaoPaulo01.jpg-Andretti Autosport
