Ah, I forgot to do my own!
“By being a racing driver you are under risk all the time. By being a racing driver means you are racing with other people. And if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver because we are competing, competing to win. And the main motivation to all of us is to compete for victory, it’s not to come 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th. I race to win as long as I feel it’s possible. Sometimes you get it wrong? Sure, it’s impossible to get it right all the time. But I race designed to win, as long as I feel I’m doing it right.”
“I’m Michael Schumacher. I don’t need to test my driving ability.”
“I’m not very comfortable with what people sometimes say or think about me, things I don’t feel responsible for. They are very artificial in their point of view. They write stories about me, often to justify themselves, without looking at how I got to win the race.”
“Racing cars are made to race, theyíre not built for a nice, slow Sunday afternoon drive. You really have to push hard and sometimes beat the shit out of the car.”
“You only live once, so you have to try to have a smile on your face.”
“The chequered flag is really just a stupid wooden stick and a piece of cloth. Itís a small thing, but it means so much when you cross the line at moments like that. It was unbelievable.”
“We are Red Bull, we are in a unique position again this year and we are horny.”
“Well, its just a joke. Iíve asked my mum and Michael really isnt my father.”
“Vettel is to driving what Adrian is to designing cars. He seems to have exceptional ability, and when you put the two together, who else has a chance?”
“Sebastian Vettelís team made a pact that they wouldnít shave after Singapore, and obviously he won in Japan so superstition comes into play. Personally, I think Sebastian is just trying to prove that he can grow a beard, having only started shaving about three months ago.”
And there’s some pretty good interview moments…
Interviewer: Mark, how hungry are you going into your home grand prix?
Seb: You’ll have lunch before, no?
Mark: Yeah like Seb said, I’ll have lunch before!
Wow… that’s a lot of quotes!
