Milwaukee IndyFest (West Allis, Wisconsin): Ryan Hunter-Reay, Andretti Autosport - Q&A

[Is there a secret to the Andretti Autosport success here, and in 2013 in general after claiming four wins in nine races so far between you and James Hinchcliffe?]

Ryan Hunter-Reay:
Yeah, well, obviously it's general terms that I have to speak in because we race on so many different types of tracks, it's just not one thing or the other.

It's the engineering staff that's doing a great job developing things in the off‑season. I think it's really ‑ and I talked about it last year a lot ‑ it's the team atmosphere. When you have a good team atmosphere, four cars all pushing together in the same direction, it makes a massive difference. You're getting four times the amount of data in one session. That's a big deal.

Q:
Thank you, Ryan. Congratulations. Happy Father's Day!

Ryan Hunter-Reay:
Thank you.
