Favourite Driver Quips


Too old to watch the Asian races live.
There is no denying that drivers can come up with amazing quips, and they are frequently most notable for their honesty.
Here are a few of mine. Please add some of yours.

When asked why he was slower in the Matra in the second session than he was in the first: "Ah well, they have done some improvements!"

When asked if the Tecno needed more power: "If it had one more horsepower, it would have a total of TWO!"

After a round of golf, he was asked what his handicap was.
His response: "With my height and this nose, you want to know what my handicap is"

When asked why he crashed in practice, he replied "I went into the corner a little hot, ran out of talent and hit the wall."

How can you not love an answer like that?

I always liked Eddie Irvines response to a question on the design of his skid lid:

"the orange is because I'm from Ulster and the green is so the other side don't shoot me"
