    Tony Kanaan on the rumours of Dario Franchitti's retirement after Houston, 2013

    Dan Wheldon, Homestead test 2007

  • The toughest people out there passing me are my teammates, and I don't get that. I think three of the four of us get what the camaraderie of Andretti Green Racing is.

    Marco Andretti on an unidentified teammate after Milwaukee 2009

  • I wasn't thinking, 'That's Eddie [Cheever] and he's in an Infiniti and so I need to beat him.' I was thinking, 'That's Eddie, and I want to kick his ass!'

    Sebastien Bourdais on IndyCar, June 2015
