Castroneves on "Dancing with the Stars"UPDATE #2 Q: With you being on Dancing with the Stars, the different dancing there, what will be your forte? What are you strong in now?: HELIO CASTRONEVES: "I don't think I'm strong on anything on dancing right now. I thought Samba would be something that I might get away with it. But after three days of rehearsing, I can see that I need a lot of practice.
"But I have to say that it's extremely hard. You people that think you can dance, oh, boy, I mean, it is very difficult. Especially me, my sport is I'm sitting, and now you have to use a lot of balance. You have to use a lot of legs, especially like kind of a squat. We don't do that in racing.
"It is quite a big challenge for me. But, hey, I'm taking everything I can. I know I'm going to try to listen as much as I can to try. The problem is sometimes I do understand, but the problem is getting my body to do what I understand.
"It's been fun. I have to say I broke some laughs the last few days. Today was fun, as well. I just learned Mambo. If you see on TV how I'm dancing Mambo, you're going to be, 'Wow, I never saw Helio doing something like that.'"
