  • ...if everyone agrees on a spec kit, IndyCar needs to really use the chance to get something that looks good, doesn't have all this winglet crap stuck all over it, and doesn't create all this dirty air.

    Will Power on aerokits, motorsport.com, May 4th 2016

    Paul Tracy on lax penalties for avoidable contact, Long Beach 2014

  • I was going good but then I slipped in my own drool.

    Helio Castroneves on the return to road courses
