| Grand Prix driving is like balancing an egg on a spoon while shooting the rapids.
| Grand Prix motor racing is like Punch. It is never as good as it was.
| Never forget that you have an appointment with a man with a chequered flag at the end. You can be late if you like, but if you don't keep that appointment you might just as well not have started.
Sammy Davis (1920)
| On the lack of safety precautions at the Nurburgring-You'd have to be William Tell to hit a straw bale round here.
Barry Sheene (1974)
| On the Monaco Grand Prix- This is a very special race. It's the most colourful grand prix in the world, and it's really classy here, but if I don't win, I'm going to hate the damn joint.
Mario Andretti (1978)
| Racing is 99 per cent boredom and one per cent terror.
| You can always spot a motorcycle racer in a restaurant. He's the one gripping his fork with the first two fingers of his left hand.
Kenny Roberts (1973)
