"I hope in a short time that everybody remembers me for being Bruno, myself, and not for my uncle's surname."
Bruno Senna

I hope people remember that too. It is a lot of pressure for him to live up his uncle's name.

Good quotes. Perhaps we can turn this into a "memorable F1 quotes" thread?

A personal fave;

"Break a leg" Grid girl to Schumacher pre-race, Silverstone '99.

Last one:

Clark came through at the end of the first lap of the race so far ahead that we in the pits were convinced that the rest of the field must have been wiped out in an accident."
An onlooker describing Jim Clark's incredible first lap speed at the 1967 Belgian GP at Spa

Wow!

As someone who never witnessed Jim Clark, or anyone in F1 before the 1990's, I am amazed at this comment!

Louise Goodman "You have been practising with that pit-lane speed limiter?"

David Coulthard "Yeah I have, I just imagining it's been your nipples I'll have to be more gentle with it when I tip my fingers off at the end of the pit-lane."

Perhaps Bruno Senna will be the new Senna, instead of Hamilton!

My favourite still has to be a Mika Hakkinen post-race press conference from I think Spain 1999:

(paraphrased)

Interviewer: so Mika, how was the car for you out there today? Were you pleased with its performance?
Mika: Yes.

I: And you didn't have much trouble in the early stages of the race, and were able to lead well up until the first pitstop - were you expecting that?
Mika: Yes.

I: This puts you in a good position for the championship, do you think the prospects for the rest of the year are looking good?
Mika: Yes.

etc...

I: Now, moving onto second position, Michael Schumacher...
Mika (butting in): Don't you want to ask me any more questions?

lol Mika being Mika. TBH he probably was more aware of press comments and the media and always seemed to have a bit of a chip on his shoulder towards them. I always got the feeling that was the case rather than being a steely quiet Finn.

Ok. I thought he had said that after their cars "met" in Tamburello and one of the drivers was seen giving the other the finger.
