Penske poised to end title drought

Penske poised to end title drought

With four races of the 2013 IndyCar Series to run, Helio Castroneves leads the points and stands on the brink of claiming his first title and Penske's first since 2006. Ahead of this weekend's race in Baltimore ANDREW VAN DE BURGT caught up with the Brazilian and his team-mate Will Power

AUTOSPORT: We're in the finishing straight of the season, Helio you have a championship to play for, Will you're racing for the pride of wins, how does that affect the approach that you take into the remaining races?

Helio Castroneves: My approach is the same since the beginning of the season. If we have a good car, yes, we are going to push for the win. If we don't have a good car we just play safe.
