    Alex Tagliani, Indy 500 Bump Day 2009

  • Whatever you heard, somebody made it up. For the first two days, he talked nonsense because he had a concussion. It doesn't matter what he was saying. He doesn't even remember it.

  • With photos, sometimes people get old. Not me, but some people do.

    Fernando Alonso on what his mother would think about the Indy 500, motor.as.com, April 20th 2016
