Mario Domínguez - Driver

"Miami is such a glamorous city - I'm really looking forward to this race. Especially since it's set on the downtown streets - I think the fans, both in person and on TV, will really enjoy it. Of course for me, it feels like a second home since there is such a huge Latin-American population and they give me a huge amount of support."
