Zanardi shares his thoughts during CART media teleconference (May 29, 2002)

A really illuminating interview, touching on issues related to Zanardi's horrific accident, his recovery and the current state of CART. Alex is truly showing himself to be a champion, not just in racing but in life.

Regarding CART:
"It looks like IRL is certainly gaining power, but unfortunately Champ Cars is actually losing a little bit. And I really hope that Mr. Pook can turn it around and I wish him the best because CART, it's a great series, and this war, it's just sad. I mean, I am not the first one to say what I am saying, but the cars that I drove in all my years in America is by far the best car I have ever driven. I am not saying the one I drove for Chip or the one I drove for Mo, that kind of car, that kind of chassis with that kind of turbocharged engine, with that kind of chemistry between power and control, that kind was just fantastic. And you know, if you would have to have Olympic games for motor racing, that's the kind of car that would have to be picked because that's the kind of car that would allow everybody to be, more or less, in the same situation and so that's what's out of motor racing you could really call the closest thing to sport, pure sport.

Formula One is not sport. Formula One is only intense competition between teams where the competition is really the research, the technology. Because nobody could win if they wouldn't have a Ferrari or a McLaren or a Williams, you know, and with having Champ Cars, everybody could win a race and still at an amazingly high level with cars that are competing and making -- producing a super exciting show."
