It hard to believe Will Power hasn’t won in a year.
He’s been one of the most dominant Izod IndyCar Series drivers the last four years, with 16 wins over that span. He’s finished second in the points standings the last three seasons and is a threat to win almost every weekend.
Last year he started off the season strong by winning three of the first four races, including the one in Brazil.
But he’s yet to win since as he’s in the longest winless drought of his IndyCar career. It’s been 14 races since Power has reached victory lane and if there’s ever going to be a race where he ends that drought, it’s going to be this weekend in Sao Paulo.
The series has been coming to Brazil the last three years. In all three races Power won. He’s going to try and end his drought and make it four-for-four in Sao Paulo this weekend as he holds every record there.
A win in Sao Paulo is crucial as he’s struggling this season. He only has one top 15 finish in the three races this year and currently sits 37 points behind his teammate Helio Castroneves in eighth in the standings.
After two straight disappointing ends to his season where he dominated and looked to be on his way to his first season title he’s faltered in the end. He wanted to come back better than ever and finally get over the hump and win the IndyCar championship.
So far this season he’s been snakebitten.
Brazil is the place where he can turn a bad 2013 around and get back in the title hunt. Don’t be surprised to see the No. 12 Verizon Wireless Chevrolet in victory lane for the fourth straight year in Sao Paulo.
