Colombian drivers Carlos Huertas, Juan Pablo Montoya, and Carlos Munoz finished 1-2-3 in Race 1 of the 2014 Grand Prix of Houston, the first time three Colombian drivers have stood on a podium at the same event in a major motorsports series.
Montoya gave a very boisterous post-race interview, clearly pleased to return to the podium in his first year back to open-wheel racing following a 7-year sojourn with NASCAR. Rookie Munoz reflected on what it meant to be part of day in which Colombians not only closed out an IndyCar podium but also advanced to the quarter-finals of the World Cup for the first time. Fellow rookie Huertas reflected on what it’s like competing against his country’s greatest race driver, JPM.
All in all, a great post-race presser
