Mobil 1 The Grid: Simon Pagenaud On Ambition & Ayrton Senna

Mobil1 The Grid catches up with Simon Pagenaud.

2016 was a year to remember for IndyCar champion Simon Pagenaud. Having secured the series title, the Frenchman now has his sights set on a repeat performance this year, starting with the much-coveted Indy 500 – a race he considers to be a ‘dream’ to win. Mobil 1 The Grid caught up with the Penske driver to find out more about his hopes for 2017 and why Brazil’s Ayrton Senna remains an inspiration to his racing career.

As a mechanical engineer, Dusty’s passion is for sports cars and endurance racing. In his opinion, there’s nothing better than a race car closely based on a model that you can go out and buy from the manufacturer showroom. He’s very particular about his writing utensils and appreciates a great, cruelty free pomade.
