SEBRING - Juan Pablo Montoya climbed into an open-wheel race car for the first time since leaving Formula One for the US stock car scene in 2006, turning IndyCar practice laps Monday. The 38-year-old Colombian sampled his Team Penske car at Sebring International Raceway to begin finding a comfort zone for the vehicle he will drive in the 2014 IndyCar season alongside Penske teammates Will Power of Australia and Helio Castroneves of Brazil. Montoya, the 2000 Indianapolis 500 champion, turned 20 laps in a morning session at speeds comparable to Power, who was used to set up the car for the South American, who has spent the past seven seasons in the closed-cockpit NASCAR series. "The biggest thing is that everything is still happening really fast," said Montoya.–AFP
