Rubens Barrichello described his IndyCar debut in St Petersburg as enjoyable, despite running out of fuel near the end of the race.
The Formula 1 veteran looked to be on target for a 13th-place finish before his fuel problem relegated him to 17th, but he said that his first taste of IndyCar racing was a good experience nevertheless.
"I had fun out there," said the KV Racing driver. "Unfortunately we had a [fuel] meter reading problem, so I ran out of fuel at the end.
"I enjoyed the race, and dicing with other cars, although I would have liked to have been able to push more. It has been a good learning experience this weekend, and I look forward to being back in the car in a few days for the next race."
The series continues next weekend at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama.
