Adrian Newey has admitted his rush to design Red Bull’s title-defending car for 2014 was partly to blame for the early-season technical crisis.

Juan Pablo Montoya met with members of the media and discussed his return to IndyCar, pre-season testing, his teammates at Team Penske and other topics.   

THE MODERATOR:  We have Juan Pablo Montoya rejoining the IndyCar Series.

Juan, going through some testing already, your thoughts?

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA:  I’m really excited.  I mean, I feel like I’m not where I want to be yet with the car.  I feel we have come a long way.

It’s weird.  Sometimes we’re really good, some we’re average.  The first Sebring test was horrible.  I feel like Sonoma was pretty good.  I was really happy.
