Remember when it seemed every second or third driver in American single-seater racing was Brazilian? Remember, too, how many of them were good, potential race winners?
Look at the annals of Indycar racing stretching back to 1905 - covering all its form from USAC to CART/Champ Car and what is now known as IndyCar. Inevitably, American drivers take far and away the lion's share of wins - 1143 victories spread among 227 drivers. Second, though, is Brazil, with 109 wins from 11 drivers - comfortably ahead of Great Britain (80/10) and Canada (60/10).
Well, the boys from Brazil have become old men (in purely racing terms) and there are now just two left on the IndyCar grid. Typical of the stats, they're two aces: three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves, the championship runner-up in 2002, '08, '13 and '14; and 2004 IndyCar champion and '13 Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan.
