Tweetable Quotes: “Nothing that’s worthwhile to pursue in life will be a bed of roses. There’ll always be challenges. If you waste your time dwelling on your mistakes or blaming others, you’ll end up losing yourself.” -Mario Andretti “One of the keys to my success was learning that it is bigger than just me. There is a whole team behind. These are people who have families and dreams. To win meant to show them that their work was worth it.” -Mario Andretti “The car and the driver are inherently intertwined. A car cannot make up for what the driver lacks, and vice versa, no matter how good either one of them is.” -Mario Andretti “One of the key aspects for you to succeed as a driver is to always include your team. Make them proud to be there and make them feel like they’re an important part of why you’re there.” -Mario Andretti Don’t forget to visit Mario Andretti’s website to learn more about him and his career: https://www.marioandretti.com/career-highlights Enjoying the podcast?
