“I didn’t ever want to get to F1 just to get to F1 – I wanted to be world champion, and I still do. McLaren, with the way they’re progressing, feels like the best chance for me to be able to do that, maybe the best chance I’ve had.”
“(Palou is a) fantastic person, fantastic race car driver, enormous natural ability, very resolute. He goes about his business in a very quiet way, so when he puts that (good) lap time down, you’re like, ‘Wow, how did that happen?’ It isn’t a lot of flair and flash; he just gets down to business and gets after it. It’s very refreshing for us because he’s young, aggressive, and he wants to learn.”
“Team WRT today confirmed its strong commitment to its plans in LMP2 endurance racing by confirming it will be competing in the 2021 European Le Mans Series alongside running a full FIA WEC campaign, as recently announced.”

“My dad gave me everything he had. He sacrificed a lot of his time, his money, his attention, so many things to help me get where I am today – it is all him. I am happy that I managed to learn from him and that the time he put into my career wasn’t for nothing. I did my best to make him proud.”
“The Rotonda Ayrton Senna (Ayrton Senna roundabout) will be born, named after the unforgettable Brazilian F1 driver, located between via Bovi Campeggi and the underpass Ernesto Maserati, also a pilot, under the railway area in the Porto-Zaragoza district.”
