Quotes

  • Jean-Pierre Sarti  

    The danger? Well, of course. But you are missing a very important point. I think if any of us imagined - really imagined - what it would be like to go into a tree at 150 miles per hour we would probably never get into the cars at all, none of us. So it has always seemed to me that to do something very dangerous requires a certain absence of imagination.

  • Jean-Pierre Sarti  

    Before you leave I want to tell you something. Not about the others, but about myself. I used to go to pieces. I'd see an accident like that and be so weak inside that I wanted to quit - stop the car and walk away. I could hardly make myself go past it. But I'm older now. When I see something really horrible, I put my foot down. Hard! Because I know that everyone else is lifting his.

  • Louise Frederickson  

    What a terrible way to win.

  • Jean-Pierre Sarti  

    No, there is no terrible way to win. There is only winning.

  • Jeff Jordan  

    Let's try to get the season off to a good start. Shall we? Drive the car! Don't try to stand it on its bloody ear!

  • Nino Barlini  

    I used to think nothing could be better than motorbike racing. Three times I am a World Champion on my motorbike. I am happy. Then I go into one of these, these cars: you sit in a box, a coffin, gasoline all around you. It is like being inside a bomb! Crazy, but of course the cars are faster, and that is the most important thing.

  • Nino Barlini  

    And what do you think of this man? In the middle of the race, he decides to take a swim! It cost me two seconds!

  • Jean-Pierre Sarti  

    Pete, do you ever get tired, of the driving?

  • Pete Aron  

    No.

  • Jean-Pierre Sarti  

    Lately, I sometimes get very tired, you know? Very tired.
