As the title sponsor of the Verizon IndyCar Series, we recently caught up with #Indy driver Simon Pagenaud for a behind-the-scenes view on how Verizon and Indy are driving technology in racing.  Pagenaud, a driver for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports who has already racked up two wins this season, talks about the tech in racing that allows drivers to go faster. 

“I love the feeling of driving a race car. It provides such a thrill, such an adrenaline rush,” Pagenaud says. 

He provides his first-hand insights into the intelligent steering wheel that he likens to a game controller and the 300 sensors on the cars, all of which play a powerful role in the impact that tech has had on racing.
