The result can be deduced by extrapolating his usual excitement and enthusiasm, and adding a large pinch of raw terror! ] "And there's a 600 foot drop on my left..AND we're doing 120 mph... AND we're approaching a hairpin...OH MY GOD we're going to die..."
[after a post race interview where Mansell won the French(?) GP]

Ayrton Senna with, with rage and impotent fury etched in every line of his body, reluctantly drags himself out of the McLaren." [ In reality Senna calmly stepped out of the car and walked away.]
"Well let's, uh, lugsh, luxurrriate in a little hypothesis and try to work out what, if anything, is wrong with Alain Prost." [ Prost was being caught by Berger late in the race. ] "Has he got tire problems? Very unlikely. Is Prost having fuel trouble? Well, who knows? I think it's a bit unlikely. Is Prost having gearbox trouble? I can't tell you. And since P, uh, Prost is unlikely to come on the radio and let me know you'll have to guess along with me."
