Video: IndyCar St Pete GP Q&A with Marco Andretti

AR1 talks to Andretti Autosport driver Marco Andretti about IndyCar brake issues and his new outlook on driving. Andretti has managed just two victories in 183 IndyCar starts. His last win was in 2011, and as IndyCar prepares for its Sunday season-opener through the streets of St. Petersburg, Andretti is in the best mental place of his career.

''I approached last year and said this has to be my best year. Well, that was the wrong approach,'' he said. ''If you go in thinking you have to do this, you are going to drive with a chip on your shoulder, you are going to drive angry and you are going to drive frustrated and you are not going to drive fast.''

I've been really, really overcomplicating it. I need to be thinking less. … The harder I've been pushing, the slower I've been going. But it's hard to diagnosis it because all you want to do is drive faster.''
