Will Power (yes, that is his real name) is an Australian IndyCar driver perhaps best known for the above incident last year at New Hampshire when he gave us the double bird of the century.  Power has 16 wins in his IndyCar career since 2008, but has yet to win a championship.  He finished 2nd in each of the last two seasons after leading the standings late in the season.

This year, Power once again leads the standings, but the gap is closing.  He holds a 17 point lead going into the last race in California thanks to Ryan Hunter-Reay's victory last Sunday in Baltimore.  Hunter-Reay won thanks to a controversial late restart.  Power led early on in the race, but finished 6th due to pit stops and bad weather.  After last week's race, Power gave an epic interview to IMS Radio, sounding like a man who knows he may lose his third straight championship.  Not only did Power criticize the controversial Hunter-Reay restart and drop an f-bomb on air, he offered one of the great soundbytes ever when asked what it will take to finally win the championship at the :54 second mark.

Q: "You're going to leave here with a 17 point lead, but ultimately I know it could have been a lot more."

A: "Yea, yea, man.  Been the quickest car in town for the last five races, and just… circumstances.  I can't believe that guy did not get a penalty for jumping the start."

Q: "Hunter-Reay, right at the end?"

A: "That is the biggest load of bull$hit I have ever seen, that he can just go like that before the restart cone.  Why have we got a restart zone and why even be leading on a restart if you can just go.  If I'd have known that I would have done it a hundred times."

Q: "Let's talk about Fontana though, one race to go.  You've been in this situation before, what's it going to take."

A: "It's going to take some f*cking good luck."
