2012 Indy 500: Marco Andretti Big Fan Of Saying Questionable Things

The worst news ever for racecar drivers is that everything they say is being broadcast to someone somewhere. Some racers probably keep this in mind. I probably wouldn't if I was going 200 miles per hour. Luckily, neither does Marco Andretti. His quotes from the Indy Star:

Lap 22

Andretti, after being passed by Ryan Briscoe for the lead: "(Expletive), I'm going back at him!"

Pit: "Just nice and easy. Long race."

Lap 85
Andretti: "One of my shoes just melted to the throttle."

Lap 90
Andretti, who was leading: "It's going to cost us the race, the freaking overboost."

Lap 113
Andretti: "These guys (other drivers) are trying to (expletive) kill me!"

Lap 147
Andretti, on changes he expected during a previous pit stop: "You didn't put the rear wing in?"

Pit: "No, we didn't put the rear wing in."

Andretti: "That's what I was (expletive) screaming for."

Pit: "Well, I didn't hear that."

Andretti: "I didn't say it because I'm (expletive) bored."

Lap 149
Andretti, on being asked to conserve fuel: "I don't want to give away any more position because we're already (expletive)."

Way to be, Marco. Way to be.
