Marco appreciates the wisdom his father acquired.
"My dad's been there," he said. "He's had the father in the sport, and he's aware of what that's like. Away from the track, he might ask me, 'Why didn't you do that?' I think that's how we work it out. Father and son away from the track, but all business at the race track."
Still, Marco Andretti admitted after winning at Iowa in June that the dominating emotion he felt was relief.
"Sure I've heard questions about my winning drought," he said. "All I can say is that I've done nothing different. But over the years, I've only gained experience. I've always known how to drive. I think I drive like my dad and grandfather. I'm aggressive, but I like to be sensible, too. I think they were both like that. And when the opportunity presents itself, I want to know I can go. I think they did, too. We all like to attack in the corners.
"But experience brings the ability to know what you need in the car to go faster. That's half the battle. As I'm getting older I'm better able to put my finger on that. At this stage, I've felt certain things before, and I can say, 'Ah, I know what this means.' Knowing those things, being able to help make the car better makes my job of driving easier."
