    Tony Kanaan on Will Power, Toronto, July 2011

    Adam Alexander, Indy 2005

  • The minute he got in front of me, he slowed down half-a-second a lap because he knows I'm fighting him for the championship and he was out of the race. It's probably the most unsportsmanlike thing I've ever seen on the racetrack, apart from shunting someone into a wall.

    Wade Cunningham on Sebastien Saavedra, Iowa 2009

  • Maybe he should start thinking about driving and stop thinking about dancing because that was a stupid move.

    Tomas Scheckter on Helio Castroneves, Detroit 2007

  • I mean this guy can't even keep his lies straight. He's told so many in the last week, he's not sure what the truth is.

    Paul Tracy on AJ Foyt, May 2009

  • And here comes Max Crappis into the pits!

    Paul Page, Michigan '99

  • Someone asked me if I win the Indy 500 if I'd still retire? I'd still retire. What better way to go out?

    James Hinchcliffe on the start of a new season, Trackside, March 18th 2014

  • We are trying to fix them but when you start behind the eight ball like last year you are playing catch-up and you will continue to play catch-up until we get rid of these stupid kits!

    Michael Andretti on aerokits, Autosport.com, 15th April 2016
