    Would love to see him try for one more Indy-but a shift in a ride at Le Mans is probably more plausible. Jimmy Clark is his idol and he was in the race a few times

    My wishes for him would be to take his doctors advice and enjoy life, leave racing life behind him as he has nothing else to prove.

    Got to spend some time with him at Petit when he ran with Level 5 in '12 and it was a great experience- easy going and great to speak with. With the tragic crashes over the last few years in the sport, I'm glad he's been given a 'second chance' after that wreck- luckily we lost him only as a race driver vs loosing him from this living world.

    See ya at the races Dario

    Yup, you're spot on-of course there's more to life than this stuff. It's hard for any pro athlete to walk away but this one has got to feel solid about his accomplishments

    Dario will make a great race commentator (the camera and the ladies love him) and hopefully he will put together his own team one day.

    Yeah him and the rest of the Indy guys seem to be very approachable and always eager to take a pic or sign and autograph.
