Top racers swap machines for a day Juan Pablo Montoya and Jeff Gordon had the time of their lives at Indianapolis.

"When I first got here, I was like, 'Man, this is cool; I'm so excited - but I was nervous, too," Gordon said. "I had no idea what this experience was going to be like.
“Just getting in the car and driving around the track…that was it for me. Once I got in the car, I didn't think about the nerves, but they were definitely there before I went out."
Not surprisingly, the drivers performed well but both slid off-course briefly. Gordon turned in laps within 1.3s of Montoya's best warm-up lap on Wednesday morning (1m15.2s), while Montoya was clocked within 1.1s of Gordon's (1m38.8s)

Gordon really did turn some impressive times. Who knows how fast he would have gone if he was allowed to test and drive the car for an entire day?

I didnīt say "jeff gordon will be a great F1 driver"... I said he could do a good job there... itīs like a expectation and not a prediction of the future....
