"If you treat a car like a woman, if you relate it to a woman because it's very highly strung and nervous piece of equipment, you can have this love affair with it. You have got to be able to understand it and comprehend its feeling and habits. You have to coax it sometimes to get the best out of it; you have to caress it and treat it gently. At other times, maybe on a different circuit, you have to give it a really good thrashing because that is the only way it understands, because its personality does not suit that particular occasion or track."  - Sir Jackie Stewart
