    Scott McLaughlin on adding power steering, via Twitter, April 26th 2021

  • I was frustrated since Motegi and wanted to prove a point. When you're in a competitive package, you can't let points slip. I can eat breakfast tomorrow morning now instead of stabbing my fork into the table.

    Dan Wheldon, Kansas 2007

  • Everyone wants to pick a fight with me. Whatever.

  • It's just great, pure racing.

    Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015

  • Howard and me set the first and third fastest times of the day, and we both got beaten to grid slot 33 by a kid in Methodist Hospital with a smoking wreck of a car. The magic of Indy, huh?

    Paul Tracy, Indy Bump Day 2010

  • I get one more opportunity to head into the defining racing venue of my career with a single, achievable goal: Win.

    John Andretti, Indy 2010

  • It was so scary for me. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what happened but it felt like my front and rear wings were upside down.

    Marco Andretti, Kansas 2007

    James Hinchcliffe on INDYCAR mandating domed skids, Motorsport.com, April 5th 2016

  • I think it's is a long putt, so I think we're safe for a while.

    Dario Franchitti on winning the 91st Indy 500

  • When Will was going off on Versus, I was cracking up. I was like, man, I didn't know you could talk like that! And I never knew you could say 'wanker' on TV, but that's my new word for now on... so I guess something good did come out of Toronto!

    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

  • ...if everyone agrees on a spec kit, IndyCar needs to really use the chance to get something that looks good, doesn't have all this winglet crap stuck all over it, and doesn't create all this dirty air.

    Will Power on aerokits, motorsport.com, May 4th 2016

  • I hope all the fans out there were as excited about that race as I am. It was awesome doing so much passing. Racing can't get any better!

  • I can tell you one thing, with 50 to go, I thought we were going to go home and close our tent.

    Roger Penske, Indy 2006

  • I'm tired of being nice about it. The fact is, grip created by aerodynamic downforce is our enemy... At the moment, the downforce is so great that it masks the handling and hurts the racing

    Rick Mears on what's wrong with IndyCar, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

  • She probably does not know what that is, so I can say I'm going to Las Vegas to play poker and she'll think it's something like that!

    Fernando Alonso on what his mother would think about the Indy 500, motor.as.com, April 20th 2016

    Graham Rahal on winning at Mid-Ohio, Instagram, August 3rd 2015

    Tomas Scheckter on Helio Castroneves, Detroit 2007

    Ed Carpenter after the 2009 Indianapolis 500

  • Patience is a virtue... and someone wasn't very virtuous today.

    James Hinchcliffe on an unnamed driver, Long Beach 2014

    Graham Rahal on the Indianapolis 500, Racer.com, June 4th 2016

  • I've never been so happy to be in last place.

    Ryan Hunter Reay, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • Back at the big house next weekend, kids.

    Alexander Rossi on the Harvest GP, Twitter.com, 24th September 2020

  • I arrived in Turn 1 and I was convinced that I was doing flat out, but the foot was not flat - it had its own life, it was not connected to my brain at that moment.

    Fernando Alonso on Turn 1 commitment at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, May 3rd 2017

  • I was going through there as hard as I could. It was for everything. It was for all the marbles.
