Andretti Green Racing Signs Fittipaldi
Christian Fittipaldi, #26 XM Satellite Radio Acura:
"I am definitely looking forward to this new challenge in my career. I was talking to Mike (Michael Andretti) about how five or six years ago we were teammates and now he has a team and I am driving for him. It is going to be different for us, though, because when we were teammates we had to work together and at the same time there was that internal rivalry that you always have in a team. But now, we are 200 percent on the same side.
"I think 2008 is going to be a really good season for Andretti Green. I am very motivated to do everything I can to get XM and Acura back into the winner's circle."
Michael Andretti, Chairman, Andretti Green Racing:
"When you're hiring a driver, you want to think that he is going to be fast. But, when you're hiring a driver that you used to race against and were teammates with, you know he is going to be fast. For sure, that is why we're excited to welcome Christian to the AGR XM Acura family. We need to go to the next level with our ALMS program in 2008 and we feel like this is a great step in that direction."
