Andretti Rebounds for Third in A1GP Sepang Feature After Big Crash in Sprint Race

SEPANG, Malaysia (Nov. 23, 2008) - A1 Team USA driver Marco Andretti was involved in a race-ending crash at the start of the Sprint race, but rebounded to record a third-place finish in the Feature race during round three of the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport in Sepang, Malaysia.

Marco Andretti, Andretti Green A1, A1 Team USA:

(ON THE SPRINT RACE INCIDENT) "You can say its unavoidable but at the time I thought everyone was going and I could only see two rows ahead of me. I couldn't see ahead of the whole field. I was about to grab fourth gear, and as soon as rear tires were hooking up, that was needed to stop the car. There was no hope. In the States you either go or you don't. Here, they went and then stopped. No one was to blame, it was just racing. But ultimately I crashed out two cars."

(ON FINISHING THIRD IN THE FEATURE) "The start was a bit of survival and I used the PowerBoost when everybody was close together and we needed the track position. The boys did a good job in the pits and then we weren't threatened from behind, but I had nothing on these guys in front so I was just enjoying the car and Sepang. It's a great circuit."
