Despite going into the first A1 GP season as arguably one of the underdogs to challenge for race wins, Team Canada and Sean McIntosh have gradually established themselves as a force to be reckoned with this year, culminating in their surprise win at Sentul, in Indonesia.

However, for McIntosh, his career-affirming journey in A1 GP has come to an end as he will be handing over his car to Patrick Carpentier for the next two rounds at least in Mexico and the United States.

Nonetheless, McIntosh is delighted to be leaving the series on a high. "For me Indonesia was the perfect way to hand over! I said before the weekend that I wanted to go out on a high before Patrick took over and I wanted to win races for the team. I think we proved in Indonesia that as a team and a package A1 Team Canada is capable of competing at the front."

McIntosh has also offered his words of wisdom to Indy Racing League star Carpentier, who makes his debut next weekend, warning him of the competitiveness - and physical nature - of the competition.

"Patrick can expect the racing in Mexico to be pretty tough. Until you experience the level of competition and know how aggressive the driving is you can't really appreciate it.

"While I won't physically be in the car I'll still be there supporting Patrick and A1 Team Canada."
