"You would state front suspension or downforce or the motor, and he would state alright and he would go to the industrial facility and he'd be 'giving them arseholes resembles he would dependably say.

"Eventually he was a piece of the way toward completely changing me. On the off chance that I hadn't had the call all that time prior, I would be a one-time best on the planet now and most likely 22 wins."

"Everybody's posting pictures and... I don't feel like I need to fit in with how everybody works.

"I took as much time as is needed... we as a whole adore him and miss him and it's difficult to envision or to believe that when somebody goes, you're never going to get the opportunity to see them again or to converse with them or have discussions.

"Yet, I have the best of recollections with him, so he will live on in the entirety of our recollections."
