Gorgeous Grand Prix quotations
What is life but one grand adventure.
The harder I push, the more I find within myself.
I am always looking for the next step, a different world to go into, areas where I have not been before. It's lonely driving a Grand Prix car, but very absorbing. I have experienced new sensations, and I want more. That is my excitement, my motivation.
For many years I enjoyed the pleasure of cruising on my yacht all summer long and these were my best holidays. In mid-May, we'd start in St Tropez. I'd collect my bikinis from my home there and then we'd go up to Cannes for the Film Festival, on to Monte Carlo for the Grand Prix and then to Italy.
The world is like a grand staircase. Some are going up and some are going down.
Business is much less transparent than a win in a Grand Prix;
in a race you drive over the finishing line first and you have won. In business it is different.
Ukyo Katayama is undoubtedly the best Formula One driver that Grand Prix racing has ever produced
[Andrea De Cesaris is] the man who has won more Grands Prix than anybody else in the history of Grand Prix racing without actually winning one of them.
Anything happens in Grand Prix racing, and it usually does.
Racing a thoroughbred grand prix car in front of a home crowd will be a surreal and mighty experience.
That's the first time he had started from the front row in a Grand Prix, having done so in Canada earlier this year.
It's very, very special for me. This is where I've grown up, it's my home, and winning the Monaco Grand Prix is the highlight of any racing driver's career and for me a childhood dream. It being my home makes it all the more special, unbelievable.
The preparation, commitment and desire to win will be no less than the last time I drove a grand prix car in anger.
I go to see grand prix every year, and I watch every race on TV for sure.
I probably go to three or four CART races and three or four Formula One races.
For me to train and get ready for racing, I can't just sit in the gym all the time and that's the way it is. Responsibility starts and stops with me. My main gig is grand prix driving, that's what I do and I need to keep that in the forefront of my mind.
Certain management policies-stretching of credit resources, for example-may lead to great progress in good conditions; but, like the Grand Prix car in comparison with the Land Rover, they may not be robust enough to survive when the going gets tough.
It is such a special feeling to win a grand prix.
However I am looking forward to the two new Grands Prixs both Shanghai and Laguna Seca are fantastic tracks and it will be good to race at them.
The track in Abu Dhabi is special; this will be our third Grand Prix there.
I'm very proud to be the first winner of the Indian Grand Prix, but then on the other hand we recently lost two of our mates. I didn't know Dan Wheldon, but he was big in motorsport, and then this year I got to know Marco Simoncelli, so our thoughts are with them at the moment.
When I was a kid, I would watch the grands prix.
Everyone dreamt of becoming a race driver, while I only started thinking about it when I was 18 or 19. Only at that age did I seriously start thinking about this job. Before then, I would change ideas from one second to the next.
We have had more sales for this year's grand prix than any other, and we have been helped in that by the fact that Jenson had 10 podiums last season and looks like a winner. It is good for British motor racing if he is there and doing well.
Some books claim I have already clocked up a century of Grands Prix, but let me put the record straight. Australia will be my 100th start, and I aim to mark the milestone with a cracking performance. It could even be celebrated with a victory.
What I think a lot of that was K-1 having had their Grand Prix finals not even a month before the "Dynamite!!" show so a lot of those guys were coming into that fight pressured to fight.
As the cancellation of the German Grand Prix indicates, Germany is a terrible market for Formula One.
Just take the lack of presence of F1 in the United States.
In theory - and logically - you would have an East Coast Grand Prix, a West Coast Grand Prix, and I think you should have a street race in Detroit - it is still the motor capital of the US. You stay in the US for four weeks and could have two to three races, certainly two.
There are two types of producing deals, and I've had both.
I've produced over 20 movies now. You are either watching in horror, as the cars take the curve in the grand prix, or you're enjoying it.
Jenson Button is the real deal. It just takes the right environment, the right time - don't doubt he has all the talents to win Grands Prix and challenge for championships.
Red Bull are backing a spinal-injury research charity called Wings For Life, which I am an ambassador for, with a programme called Faces for Charity that will run at this year's British Grand Prix.

Originally I was supposed to do Grand Prix, but I was under contract to 20th Century Fox at that time and Alex North was supposed to do Sand Pebbles, but he got sick, so Fox preempted me out of Grand Prix, and to my good fortune, I got to do Sand Pebbles. It was my first time working with Robert Wise and it was a great experience.
No, it's not healed. It happened in Sochi and it's been going on and off all season. It's been bugging me throughout my entire Grand Prix season. Coming here, my foot was bothering me. I knew when to push my foot and when not to. I know that it was all in my head. I knew if I didn't think about it too much, it wouldn't bother me too much. But it's been getting better. Still not fully healed but it's getting much better than it has been.
The Grand Prix Final is an opportunity for me to go out and experience new jumping passes in competition. I put in a triple loop-half loop-triple Salchow in the second of the program. It's a very difficult jumping pass so this is a chance for me to try out the new elements and the adjusted jumping layout to get prepared for nationals.
I am excited about Indian Grand Prix F1 race.
I will support the Force India team. I have friends like Michael Schumacher but I will support Force India because that is the Indian team and country comes first.
Even as I speak, in four hours time the Kyalami Grand Prix will roar away
I had a very good package for Phoenix, but at other tracks we do not have the power. The Brazilian Grand Prix was maybe closer to the reality.
Driving a stock car does not require much handling ability, at least not as compared to Grand Prix racing, because the tracks are simple banked ovals and there is almost no shifting of gears. So, qualifying becomes a test of raw nerve - of how fast a man is willing to take a curve.
