  • Some of the drivers roll out this 'safety' word, and suddenly it ties everybody's hands. But those arguments make no sense anyway. Remove downforce and you actually improve safety

    Rick Mears on downforce, Motorsport.com, October 28th 2015

    Dan Wheldon on Danica Patrick, June 2007

  • That's the kind of incident that leaves skidmarks *inside* the cockpit!

    Tom Sneva
