For those who only passively pay attention to IndyCars this might not seem amusing, but for the tens of you (according to Nielsen ratings) who do this should give you a chuckle. From the latest AJ Foyt Racing pre-race notes, with bolding added by your humble host:

* Vitor Meira Update: Vitor Meira is continuing to recover in his Key Biscayne, FL home. He has not used pain medication since June 4th and an x-ray taken on Wednesday, June 10th revealed his healing is progressing as his doctors anticipated. Meira: "All I'm trying to do now is to get better soon, so my day and tasks are built all around my getting better. This means a lot of light workout and rest... it's not very exciting but it is the fastest way to get back to the car!" Currently Meira spends 20 minutes in the morning on his bike followed by time on his steering machine to maintain his arm strength. After a light lunch, he will spend another 20 minutes on the bike followed by a 30 minute walk, usually with his Mini-Schnauzer 'Quattro.' And to exercise his mind? He finished a 2000-piece Ravensburger puzzle entitled New Wonders of the World. Meira: "I have a lot of free time!"
Maybe Vitor will get another Mini-Schnauzer and name it "RHR".

    Vitor wants to go on sixty minute walks with Quattro, but after thirty minutes of walking Quattro either hits a wall, spins off the sidewalk, or knocks himself out by running into another dog.

    Badum-CHING!

    When Quattro isn't being given enough attention he hangs around the garage looking sad.
