After driving the 2008 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Corvette around the brick yard, Emo got bitten by the Corvette bug!
Yahoo’s UK sport site, “Eurosport” recently caught up with Fittipaldi and did a 60 second interview where they asked him questions like what’s your favorite food, favorite movie and other such bio info!
The question that got a surprise was about his driving habbits.
Eurosport writer Jonathan Symcox asked him, “What car do you drive?”
Fittapaldi answered, “Always a Mercedes. But I’ve just ordered the fastest car in the world. It’s amazing, the new Corvette. It costs over 100,000 dollars. It has amazing handling, amazing speed – they have made a car that would beat any Ferrari, any Lamborghini in the world. Test drive it in the future, and remember what I told you.”
Coming from a multiple time winner of the Indy 500, the Formula One World Championship, and too many other accomplishments to list here, that’s a pretty impressive endorsement!
