Ask Juan Pablo Montoya if the 2015 IndyCar Series season was his last, best shot at winning a championship and be prepared for a direct answer from the 40-year-old Colombian.
"Eh, I've won a championship already," Montoya says, referring to his 1999 CART title. "People remember you for how many times you've won the Indianapolis 500. I've done that twice. I've done a lot of great things. I won the Monaco Grand Prix and two Indianapolis 500s. 2015 was a good year, but we have to step it up this year."
Montoya appeared to be unstoppable in last year's championship. After winning the season-opening St Petersburg round on March 29, he had created a path to lead the points from flag to flag for the entire season.
