I saw it too. I knew a lot about this from talking to Mario and his wife (yes, Andretti). I'm standing next to Mario in my avatar at his headquarters in Nazareth, PA.
They said you really didn't want to get too close to other drivers (friendship wise) because you never knew when someone was going to get killed. Case in point, Ronnie Peterson who was Mario's teammate in 1978 for Lotus.
