Alexander Rossi used a Michael Phelps method to hep IndyCar form


Reflecting on his 2018 season, Rossi says inspiration from Phelps – the most decorated Olympian of all-time with 28 medals – kept him on track during increased attention.

“I’m not going to let the negative comments hurt my performance,” said Rossi.

“One of the ideas I stole from Michael Phelps a while ago was that thing where any negative story written about him he would print and put in his closet and use it as motivation.

“But equally I’m not going to start believing all the praise, either. That can hurt your performance too.”
