Just competing in the Brazilian GP is a dream for all Brazilian racing drivers. I remember sitting in the grandstands when I was a kid, watching Ayrton Senna, Nelson Piquet and even Rubens Barrichello. After that, to race there in Formula One is a feeling that is hard to explain.
I make jokes about the fact that as a neuro-surgeon I shouldn’t be required at a motor race because the drivers don’t have any brains…. otherwise they wouldn’t race.
I’m no different from other drivers – my talent is in my brain, not in my right foot.
I’ve been fined probably more than any driver, and I’ve probably paid it out of my own pocket more than any driver.
I can drive a certain car one day with great pleasure, and the next day I’ll be disappointed that the experience isn’t as good as the day before. These cars have moods that change with the weather, or with the driver’s own moods.
Google is working on self-driving cars, and they seem to work. People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better. Any time you stand in line at the DMV and look around, you’re like, ‘Oh, my God, I wish all these people were replaced by computer drivers.’
Before they’re plumbers or writers or taxi drivers or unemployed or journalists, before everything else, men are men. Whether heterosexual or homosexual. The only difference is that some of them remind you of it as soon as you meet them, and others wait for a little while.
Then as everything, like I say, things started to come together, when things started to go our way, that’s when you results started to come. I was no different driver. I was certainly learning every time I went in the car.
My driver Kellie Frost and I would race these fellows home and they were always faster on the highway. We did the same with Daniel and his driver, and thus began a long series of jokes and competitions to alleviate the impossible hours and tensions this film provoked.
I don’t want to go back into space for military reasons, but the economic driver still remains. And so it’s a matter of people understanding how that economic driver is revealed with healthy investments on the space frontier.
You see, I used to do a certain amount of market research by going to the local drugstore and seeing what the truck drivers would put up. Now it’s all just copies from the latest best-seller list and damn little of anything else.
Some of the best navigators in the world are London taxi cab drivers. They have to learn 25,000 streets and how to get from one to the other.
For the political world, I have come to believe, is fundamentally beyond anyone’s control, yet we all go on as though it were a kind of vehicle that only needs a change of drivers in order to steer it away from its frequent hair-raising visits to the edge of the cliff.
If there’s 10,000 little boys racing around the world and there’s only 10 girls, best case 100, the numbers are stacked massively against us. If you don’t increase the talent pool of young girls, you’re not going to get the best drivers at the top.
Donald [Driver] is a good guy, a righteous guy. I have no beef with him. But I have multiple sources on this; people not connected with one another who verified it.
I hate slow drivers and slow golfers.
If you are a driver of a team and have a certain set of sponsors, who is the target market for those sponsors? But, of course, it is also a question of nationality.
Men may or may not be better drivers than women, but they seem to die more often trying to prove that they are.
I used to have horrible cars that would always end up broken down on the highway. When I tried to flag someone down, nobody stopped. But if I pushed my own car, other drivers would get out and push with me. If you want help, help yourself – people like to see that.
It is technology. They all changed to a harder golf ball, so they gave up spinning on the greens. They all changed to longer drivers, bigger heads with hotter faces and lighter shafts. The problem is, the harder you hit it, the more control you lose.
Each morning, we return from the dream soul trying to adjust to the day world, that moment when the two souls exchange places in the driverвЂ™s seat.
I think NASCAR racing comes down… to going for those last-lap passes, making those risky moves. That’s what makes drivers unique.
That evening I rode downtown on an unaccountably empty bus, sitting in the last row. At the front I saw a thin cloud of smoke rising around the driverвЂ™s head. вЂHey, bus driver,вЂ™ I said. вЂCan I smoke?вЂ™ вЂMay I,вЂ™ said the bus driver. вЂI love you,вЂ™ I said.
I keep mementos from everything I’ve done. I’ve got my cab driver’s license from ‘Happiness.’ I’ve got a pair of glasses and a belt buckle from playing John Lennon. I’ve got a pair of sunglasses from playing Andy Warhol… It’s all in a box in the garage.
As a consumer goods company serving billions of consumers every day, Unilever understands the drivers and motivations that create the norms that lie behind people’s behaviour.

His saliva tasted like the wet dicks of ten thousand lonely truck drivers.
“Penn station”, Ali said to the driver, slamming the door. Then she turned back to Hanna. “We ditch the bitches”, she said. “And then we take them down”.
Once you realize that documentation should be laughed at, peed upon, put on fire, and just ridiculed in general, then, and only then, have you reached the level where you can safely read it and try to use it to actually implement a driver.
Experience is invaluable. I can’t express enough how much experience in this sport has helped me as a driver.
On that same tour we ran into a band at Aylesbury Friars, a biggish venue in Oxfordshire, England. They were a four-piece from Ireland called U2. They seemed like nice fellows and they sounded pretty good, but we didnвЂ™t keep in touch. TheyвЂ™re probably taxi drivers and accountants by now.
Development is a fundamental part of our national security. It is extreme poverty – the realities of access to water and food – which creates the long-term drivers of our insecurity. Most wars are fought over scarce resources, and that is going to accelerate in the future.
The different parts of the automobile like the ignition switch, the various buttons, the steering wheel – the interfaces between the driver and the machine – is our spirit or heart.
It was not pre-arranged. It just happened that the driver made a demand and I just didn’t feel like obeying his demand. I was quite tired after spending a full day working.
The silence of snow, thought the man sitting just behind the bus driver.
Economics is a slave-driver. No one has free time; no one has any leisure.
I firmly believe that we can protect taxpayer dollars, bus drivers’ jobs, and the safety of our students. We just need a mayor who actually cares about all three.

Anyone can exceed expectations in one way or another and I hope to prove that when I race alongside, not just able-bodied drivers, but the best Touring Car drivers in the UK.

We women shouldn’t get our driver’s licenses till real late in life.
Formula One was just cool. I loved racing, all types of racing, but from a young age, Formula One was the noise and everything, and that’s what I was drawn to. I already knew when I was younger, the coolest guys are in F1… not that NASCAR drivers aren’t cool, but that was always what I had in my head!
Certainly some hosts on Airbnb are opening up their spare bedrooms to meet new people; and some drivers use Uber to carpool with strangers for the companionship. But the most productive members of each community are professional operators, making available their homes or cars as a way to earn or supplement a living.
But amongst the drivers I don’t have friends at all. They are not my friends. It would never work to have a friendship, so I don’t make any effort to make friends.
As from the 1970’s onward, digital code started to drive the global economy, now life code is beginning to be the fundamental driver of the global economy over the next 10, 20, 30 years.
I was a really bad taxi driver. I only collided twice but it was one time too much.
One of the drivers of heroin has been the misuse of pain medication. If we’re gonna deal with heroin and heroin use in the United States, we really have to focus on reducing the magnitude of the prescription drug use issue.
When I look at the faces of turning drivers, I mostly see them looking in the direction of oncoming motorists rather than at the people they’re about to turn into.
I was a driver and a racer. The difference between drivers, who can be great World Champions, and racers, who are also World Champions, is that racers don’t wait for things to happen: they make things happen.
What cancer does is, it forces you to focus, to prioritize, and you learn what’s important. I mean, I don’t sweat the small stuff. I used to get angry at cab drivers. It’s not worth it…. And when somebody says you have cancer, you realize it’s all small stuff.
We must of necessity be servant to someone, either to God or to sin. The man who surrenders to Christ exchanges a cruel slave driver for a kind and gentle master whose yoke is easy and whose burden is light.

You cannot expect the guy who drove the car into the ditch to navigate it out of the ditch. You have to put a new driver in the seat. I’m not saying the new driver is going to be any better, but we need a new driver. Kerry is the only choice.
Growing up I’ve watched Lewis and aspired to have some of his attributes, mainly his speed. His raw pace is probably the best of everyone on the whole grid, so there are bits you want from different drivers.
I want to force the other drivers to find a way past me.
The truth is, my dad was a great driver. I mean, he could handle an automobile. He loved speed. He used to joke that his one regret was he didn’t join the volunteer fire service so he could drive the ambulance.
We believe that the all-new ES 350 epitomizes Lexus’ new design direction. Every element of this vehicle invites participation — both visual and tactile. Its design is something drivers will need to experience and not just observe.
Drunk driving contains a far greater risk of violent death than the use or sale of illegal drugs, the societal response to drunk drivers has generally emphasized keeping the person functional and in society, while attempting to respond to the dangerous behavior through treatment and counseling.
Consider this: 1. Would you ride in a car whose driver was on the consciousness-expanding “entheogenic” drug LSD? And here’s a bonus question: 2. Why does an “expanded consciousness” include the inability to operate a motor vehicle?
I should have known the power-hungry slave drivers at River’s Edge would see my five days of freedom only as a challenge to be filled.
With cab drivers, I always say I’m from Brazil. I don’t say I’m from Israel. It’s happened more than once that someone is blaming me for the government’s policy. And I say, ‘Listen, I live here. I’m a musician. I don’t call the shots.’
The most important thing for small businesses is getting the economy back on its feet. That – the key driver of small business activity is demand for their product, and that is what we are trying to do, getting the economy back on its feet. That’s far more important than other factors.
Generally speaking, rural drivers are a much better behaved species than city drivers. I’m not sure whether they’re intrinsically this way, or there are just fewer opportunities for them to do behave badly. You can’t go around running red lights if there aren’t any red lights to run.
I’m a millionaire, I guess, but I’m just a normal person and I like everybody, taxi drivers, whoever you are, to call me by my first name and talk to me on a man-to-man basis. I think the garbage collector is as important as the goddamned president.
Our highways and our roads are underutilized because of the allowances we have to make for human drivers.
There was only really one accident that was kinda bad but it was nothing to do with booze, just bad luck… I was having a hard time a couple of years ago… I’m a good driver, I just had bad luck.
I’m shocked at being recognized. You go to places you don’t think you would be and still, you are. Taxi drivers often recognise me… but I haven’t got a free ride yet.
Information technology has been one of the leading drivers of globalization, and it may also become one of its major victims.
I’m not saying – in any way – that Donald Driver is lying or lacking sincerity. But I trust my reporting.
Education is both a tool of social justice as well as a fundamental driver of economic development.
I don’t believe there’s any evidence that credit scoring is a risk factor. What is it about someone having a worse credit score that makes them a worse driver? (Insurers) can’t answer that.
Women are a dynamic economic force. We represent the largest consumer market in the world and are drivers of GDP. More and more companies recognize that when they support women as customers, employees, leaders, future investors and partners, they are adopting sound business strategies and advancing social progress.
What sets the The Next Web apart is a focus on the internet as a key driver for a global market. Their international view is unique, making their blogs a must read and their conferences a must attend for professionals like me who do business around the globe
I’m an actor… I do a job and I go home. Why are you interested in me? You don’t ask a truck driver about his job.
I don’t even drink! I can’t stand the taste of alcohol. Every New Year’s Eve I try one drink and every time it makes me feel sick. So I don’t touch booze – I’m always the designated driver.
All Politicians should be required to wear uniforms like Racing Car Drivers with patches showing the donations received from special interest groups so we know who has paid them off!
People love to admit they have bad handwriting or that they can’t do math. And they will readily admit to being awkward: ‘I’m such a klutz!’ But they will never admit to having a poor sense of humor or being a bad driver.
Too young,too young,she chanted to herself. Wrong,of course. I was older than her grandfather but according to my driver’s license,she was right.

Money is just a tool. It will take you anywhere you want, but you have to be the driver

Starting at about, I guess, forever, I’ve always looked forward to getting older. When I was 14, I couldn’t wait to be 16 and get a driver’s license.

It should be like a driver’s license – no one can have an Instagram until they’re 18. It’s the wild, wild west, the internet.
I’m actually not a very good driver, to be honest with you. I’m a scatterbrain driver. I’m not very focused. I’m always trying to find the right music station or put on a new CD or trying to eat something.
I guess what I always found funny was the human condition. There is a certain comedy and pathos to trouble and accidents. Like, when a driver has parked his car crookedly and then wonders why he has the bad luck of being hit.
I did not have the simulator for a long time but now I have it I am playing quite a lot – probably five hours a day. I am training to try to be competitive, and everything we do we want to be competitive as drivers.
Everyday Americans really having the power here. People may remember, or you may have heard if you weren’t there during the [Richard] Nixon years, we had one of the worst Presidents ever on record but we the American people have the sense of our own power. We were in the driver’s seat.
Highways are full of careless drivers who are always too close in front of you.
Americans are falling out of the middle class, not into it. And they deserve relief. I absolute support extending the Bush tax cuts for those who work the hardest and invest the most in our economy – the real drivers of American growth, the middle class.
I’m somebody who doesn’t feel the need to be in the driver’s seat all the time. I appreciate the perspective of being in the passenger’s seat sometimes, and I feel fortunate for that because I’ve learned a lot from that perspective.
If I’m ever in a weird car accident, or I commit suicide or something, after the media stops celebrating my death, could they check into it? Because I’m not suicidal. And I’m a pretty good driver.
For the undocumented immigrants, the big priority is just to get out from the shadows, be able to get a driver’s license, buy an airplane ticket and stop worrying about sudden deportation. But for the country as a whole, it’s crucial that everybody have a citizen’s stake in the nation’s welfare.
When I was growing up in New York City, my father was a taxi driver for a time.
Have you ever watched the jet cars race on the boulevard?…I sometimes think drivers donвЂ™t know what grass is, or flowers, because they never see them slowly…If you showed a driver a green blur, Oh yes! He’d say, thatвЂ™s grass! A pink blur! ThatвЂ™s a rose garden! White blurs are houses. Brown blurs are cows.
Most men think they are good drivers. Most women think they are good in bed. They aren’t.

Endurance running was my passion, my ride. So here, I was in the driver’s seat, running for two days straight pushing the mental and physical limits striving to be better, to go farther, to give more.
One of the things that gave me most pleasure was a letter sent to me by Sebastian Vettel, written in his own hand, full of beautiful words and kindness. I wasn’t expecting this; usually, drivers don’t do this: they drive, and that’s it. But he is a beautiful person.
I think my reputation is pretty fair among the drivers. The drivers know what they get when they see me or talk to me – if they get the chance to talk to me, because some of them I just don’t talk to because I don’t like them, so they should know.
A woman driver went through a red light. The cop stopped her and said, Lady, didn’t you see that red light? The woman said, You’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.
With ‘Taxi Driver,’ I had this eureka moment. I realized that acting could be much more than what I had been doing. I had to build a character that wasn’t me.
The data does not support that high-income tax cuts are the main drivers of growth, so I don’t think that uncertainty over what the tax rate will be for someone that makes a million dollars a year has that big an impact on the economic growth rate in the country.
Sometimes I get frustrated in traffic. I typically start going deep with my cab driver and Twitter feed – simultaneously – to take my mind off the gridlock. I enjoy live-tweeting my cab rides.
I can honestly say in my entire career, I’ve never gone around a golf course and not mis-hit a shot, but today I never missed a shot. I hit every driver perfect, every iron perfect. I’m in awe of myself.
We all have the temptation to be backseat drivers when it comes to decisions that don’t work out the way we want.
Some drivers are like that. When they get a bit angry, they can perform better.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a footballer and racing driver, like all kids.
Street circuits mean that we are racing in the centre of roads that people use everyday, which is very cool for drivers, but it also makes it very easy to make a mistake, which adds more excitement for fans.
Personally, I’m not interested in making device drivers look like user-level. They aren’t, they shouldn’t be, and microkernels are just stupid.
New York waiters, probably the surliest in the Western world . . . are better images of their city than that journalistic favorite the taxi driver.
My father worked in the Post Office. A lot of double shifts. All his friends were in the same situation – truck drivers, taxi cab drivers, grocery clerks.

You know who we hear about all the rappers from? The bus drivers.
When drivers are going at their best, trying their hardest, taking chances and doing amazing things, that’s what fans love.
A racing driver has to be a good driver.
While the ranking of individual years can be affected by chaotic weather patterns, the long-term trends are attributable to drivers of climate change that right now are dominated by human emissions of greenhouse gases…
I think what makes things interesting in Formula E, and I really hope it happens with me, is that many drivers are able to win the race. Maybe many drivers can win the championship.
Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than others.
Conserving fuel is fine, and it was great in the past. The problem is that the drivers don’t have to do it. It’s all done electronically. You sit there, and it saves fuel for you, and that defeats the purpose.
No, in Lethal Weapon I was a taxi cab driver that Mel jumps in front of the taxi and pulls me out of the car and steals the taxi. Then I did some other indie driving for some of the car sequences.
You never stop learning in F1. It’s the typical thing that all drivers say, but it’s absolutely true. But also, apart from driving, you learn a bit about the political side of F1. People don’t realise how much there is outside the car.
Negotiations are about controlling things, about being in the driver’s seat and make one tiny mistake; you’re dead. I made one tiny mistake, I wore women’s clothes
Problems are evolutionary drivers.
Vans are the vehicles of murderers. Serial Killers. Rapists. Thieves. Nothing good ever happens in a van. Police should be allowed to arrest van drivers without cause. The van is the cause, asshole.
I can’t see a problem with imposing fines on drivers who violate traffic safety laws. The speed limit is the speed limit. A red light means stop. These things haven’t changed since people got their driver’s licenses.
Safety is top priority for us, and all our drivers are fully certified; all of them are checked. Their addresses are checked. Backgrounds are checked. To whatever extent the Indian system makes it possible to check.
To be a racing driver it’s essential you have very good eyesight, and that’s especially relevant at night. Your senses are heightened, you’re travelling over 200mph, you need to focus on that 110-metre braking point and you have to have absolute faith and commitment in your driving.
Until we know how many women own businesses, we may under-invest in them as entrepreneurs and economic drivers.
In the end, my pursuit of the elusive New York State driver’s license became about much more than a divorced woman’s learning to drive for the first time.
As I continue to believe that innovation and entrepreneurship are the key drivers to our economic future, it’s frustrating to hear such little cogent discussion around it.
A couple of taxi drivers have asked me if we can survive financially as an independent nation. I say, how come we are more stupid than Denmark or Finland or Sweden? They’ve all got the same amount of people. Are we all going to down tools? Is everybody in Scotland going to stop working?
I just thank the people who took part in our graduated drivers task force, who came with their thoughts and ideas as to how we can best keep our roads safe, and it has paid off.
You can’t have bank holding companies acting as hedge funds. You can’t have them taking a million-dollar pension plan for Joe Schmo the bus driver and treat it with the same risk appetite that you treat George Soros’ pocket money. It’s fundamentally ridiculous.
One of the key drivers of Ireland’s future is our balance of trade surplus.
Technology no longer consists just of hardware or software or even services, but of communities. Increasingly, community is a part of technology, a driver of technology, and an emergent effect of technology.
Beside the brand-ambassador elements of the modern racing driver, the evolution of the athlete has mandated that as drivers, we are very committed to fitness.
Too many people view on [space exploration] as a luxury rather than as a fundamental driver to stimulate interest in science to everyone in the educational pipeline. It’s vital to our prosperity and security.
There’s no question young drivers have far more accidents than older ones – but is it our aim to keep them off the roads? Or to allow only rich young people (who can afford the premiums) to drive?
My driving, I’ve been accused of not being the best, most safest driver.
I feel safe when I’m on the racetrack, I really do. I know that I’m surrounded by the best drivers in the world. That’s something you can’t say when you’re driving down the interstate.
One of the drivers of displacement and potential conflict over the next 10 to 20 years will be climate (change) – resource scarcity, climate change is going to compound the cocktail that’s driving war and displacement.
Pretty much all the drivers I get on with, at least to say ‘Hi’ and have a conversation. But when the helmet’s on, you don’t care who it is. You have no sympathy: someone blows an engine in front of you, if it means you gain a position, then you’re smiling.
The former police chief of Houston once said of me: “Frank Abagnale could write a check on toilet paper, drawn on the Confederate States Treasury, sign it ‘U.R. Hooked’ and cash it at any bank in town, using a Hong Kong driver’s license for identification.”
The designated driver program, it’s not a desirable job. But if you ever get sucked into doing it, drop them off at the wrong house.
When people say that entertainers should “know your place,” they might as well say the same thing about plumbers and teachers and cab drivers. We all should be able to express our views.
I have always believed that women are not victims, we are agents of change, we are drivers of projects.
I believe that we do our country a disservice when we make it harder for new American immigrants to abide by the rules of the road and obtain drivers licenses.
I love all insider memoirs. It doesn’t matter whether it’s truck-drivers or doctors. I think everybody likes to go backstage, find out what people think and what they talk about and what specialised job they have.
I went out with some old friends and we were having fun. A couple of them were very intoxicated. When I went to leave, I refused to let them drive. So when I got pulled over, I was the driver.
The secret of the creative life is how to feel at ease with your own embarrassment. We’re all in the dirty laundry business and we’re being paid to take risks and look silly. Race car drivers get paid to risk their lives in a more concrete way; we get paid to risk our lives in an emotional way.
Getting enough sleep makes us better family members, friends, lovers, drivers, writers, cooks, and pretty much everything else that is of importance in our lives.
Waitresses, soldiers, rickshaw drivers, old ladies selling vegetables – my father would schmooze anybody. He was Clintonesque before the word existed. And, of course, it paid dividends. Ill-tempered guards at the most notorious border crossings waved him through with cheery smiles. Haughty maitre d’s fawned over him.
I’ll tell ya, I don’t get no respect… The other day, I got back from a business trip. I got in a cab and said to the driver, “Hey! Take me to where the action is!” So ya know where he took me? He took me to my house!
That’s a hallmark of NASCAR… We have gotten to where we’ve gotten because we’re able to have the best drivers in the world, the best team owners and then giving them a package that creates the most exciting racing.
Wouldn’t you like to weigh what it says on your driver’s license?
I think women are great drivers. To be honest, I’ve only been in one car accident – one of my best friends, his wife was driving. She went into oncoming traffic, our car flipped almost four times. I didn’t even have time to put on a seat belt, because they’d just picked me up.
It seems to me a lot of drivers have lost their personalities or are not able to express themselves. However, it’s a very commercial market, and manufacturers have a far bigger say than ever before.
The company culture is about being human, being good to other people. We recently did a survey with our drivers. 48 out of 50 said that they preferred driving with Lyft because they said that passengers were friendlier.
As racing drivers, you always have those moments that it gets a bit heated, but then you start from zero again.
As a dancer I couldn’t outdance Ginger Rogers or Eleanor Powell. As a singer I’m no rival to Doris Day. As an actress I don’t take myself seriously…I’m the girl the truck drivers love.

For most of my adult life, I have been an emotional hit-and- run driver–that is, a reporter. I made people like me, trust me, open their hearts and their minds to me, and cry and bleed on to the pages of my neat little notebooks, and then I went back to a safe place and made a story out of it.
There are those who keep out of mischief, and there are the adventurers, вЂ he said. вЂњWe racing drivers are adventurers; the more difficult something is, the greater the attraction that comes from it.
Cars are like rolling diaries, metal and plastic and paint tableaux of the last ten years of their drivers’ lives … every dent, every drooping slice of chrome, has a story behind it.

No,’ the professor replied. ‘Her Majesty s alive and well – at least I assume so if she hasn’t met a certain van driver from Yeovil.’ ~Professor Hamilton
Michael [Schumacher] was a phenomenal driver but for me, Ayrton Senna was the greatest ever. If I could get one world championship that would be great; if I could win three, the same number as Ayrton did, that would be a dream. But I want to be the best driver there has ever been.
At the rear of the bus, the driver wrenched a big chunk of smoking metal out of the engine compartment. The bus shuddered, and the engine roared back to life. The passengers cheered. Darn right!” yelled the driver. He slapped the bus with his hat. “Everybody get back on board!
To certain temperaments, especially when previously agitated by any deep feeling, there is perhaps nothing more exasperating, andwhich sooner explodes all self-command, than the coarse, jeering insolence of a porter, cabman, or hack-driver.
The driver on the highway is safe not when He reads the signs, but when He obeys them.
I think that if you are well-accepted by the other drivers and respected it is important.
I looked at motor racing in America where at the Indy 500 the drivers are told ‘gentlemen start your engines’ and the crowd go wild because they know the race is about to start. I needed a hook and came up with ‘let’s get ready to rumble.’
I chose to wait to get my drivers license. Since I was working and I didn’t have time, I got it like a week before my 18th birthday.

Unfortunately, our stock is somehow not well understood by the markets. The market compares us with generic companies. We need to look at Biocon as a bellwether stock. A stock that is differentiated, a stock that is focused on R&D, and a very, very strong balance sheet with huge value drivers at the end of it.
Everyone is in awe of the lion tamer in a cage with half a dozen lions-everyone but a school bus driver.

I am a non discriminating driver. I want to kick everybody’s ass!
I won F4, and I won F3 – F3 by, I believe, the biggest margin in history and as one of the youngest drivers in history. I’m just pointing out facts. I’m not bragging or anything.

If someone is being absolutely critical of me as a driver, what could they say? I am also critical of myself to try and keep things in perspective. That is very important.
Consumers are realizing the benefits of in-car entertainment and navigation systems. When used properly, these products are great tools that help drivers focus on the road. Consumers need to remember to follow state laws, watch the road and use common sense when putting these and other products to work.
I would like it to be remembered; I would love to be World Champion one day and have my name on the list. That is the real dream – although I am sure it is the dream for pretty much all the Formula 1 drivers.
They are by far the worst drivers. They are spiteful, dithering, old and in the way. They should have their licences taken away.
I’m Straight Edge for me, so what everyone else is doing, it doesn’t matter. I’ve never been pressured to drink or smoke or anything by any of the boys, and if anything, a lot of them like me because I’m always the designated driver. I’m the one who makes sure everyone gets home alright and I’m happy doing that.
We’ve taken a position that drivers are going to be able to speak their mind and criticize the sport way more than any other sport would allow. However, there have to be some limits.

I get kids from all different cultures and nationalities coming up to me now, all wanting to be F1 drivers. They feel the sport is open to everyone.
I can assure you that most of the drivers have a lot of things they’d like to do, but racing keeps them from doing that. We’re so restricted because of our long season. We have a one-and-a-half-month period where we get to do what we want – that’s shorter than any other sport. It makes it tough, for sure.
Because memory is time folding back on itself. To remember is to disengage from the present. In order to reach any kind of success in automobile racing, a driver must never remember.
The problem is that many people operate on the assumption that NASA should go to Congress every year with hat in hand and justify it every year. Well, I see it as the greatest economic driver that there ever was. Economic drivers don’t need justification.
As a race car driver, driving is the easy part. The hard part is containing the emotions on the race track.

I wish they would pass a law where all Democrats and Republicans had to wear NASCAR racing suits, because if you look at the NASCAR drivers, it tells who their sponsors are. And if they do that, we could then become informed voters, because we would know who owns them.
These guys that take a shower, grab a cup of coffee, and go straight to the tee? That’s not the way to do it. When you warm up, hit 20 to 25 wedges, a few middle irons, and 10 to 15 3-woods and drivers. If you’re going to putt, give yourself 10 minutes.
To drive a semi-truck, a driver needs a commercial driver’s license. While formal training isn’t required, most drivers enroll in a program to help prepare them for the written and practical exams in their states.
I haven’t seen it this busy since I’ve been an IndyCar driver. So I think that’s a great kind of thing that’s happening for the IndyCar Series, in general, right now. But it’s an event that I’m very proud to be part of. I love it. I can’t wait to come back next year.
A great race car driver in a bad car doesn’t make great results. A great car and a bad race car driver doesn’t make great results. You have to have both. It’s the combination of driver and car.

I donвЂ™t discount a magical hand of fate. I am an actor, after all, and a Shakespearian, no less. But it canвЂ™t be the ruling force of your life. You have to be the driver.
If you’re injured in an automobile accident, and you sue the driver, you get much more for your injury than if you’re fighting for your country. There’s a double standard here.
My wife a great driver, she once hit a deer. It was in a zoo. There is a pair of shoes on the dashboard. They belong to the last guy she hit

Your confidence is the 15th club in your bag. You’d like it to be a thick headed driver. But it sometimes seems like a pretty weak little stick.

Ralph Kramden, as played by Jackie Gleason, was this big bumbling New York City bus driver who was kind of mean and crass and a little bit egotistical. But underneath it all, he was a big heart looking for a place to land I think.
Obama and the Democrats’ preposterous argument is that we are just one more big tax increase away from solving our economic problems. The inescapable conclusion, however, is that the primary driver of the short-term deficit is not tax cuts but the lack of any meaningful economic growth over the last half decade.
The polling of Internet users shows that friends recommendations are the most reliable driver behind purchasing decisions. Right now that market is largely untapped. Facebook and other social networks can allow that to happen.
I went back to bumming around New York, writing freelance stuff for Car & Driver and such.
I won’t be cycling to work any time soon. It’s too dark when I leave home at 4am, there’s too many speeding drivers and helmet hair wouldn’t look good on air. But I still want to do it.
The best way we can encourage people to create companies that create jobs is to celebrate the diverse entrepreneurial stories and the variety of drivers that led these entrepreneurs to sticking their necks out.
Though we work with rental agencies, a large part of our fleet comprises individual drivers.
We’re no longer arguing about riding in the back of the bus, but being the bus driver or the president of the bus company. We’re not pushing for the right to buy the hot dog, but selling the hot dog and the right to own the hot dog franchise.
I’m heavier, but with muscle rather than flab. It’s a massive difference. It means I don’t get as tired sometimes and it means that I’m hitting the ball a lot farther, about 15 yards more with my driver.
I love race car drivers, I love gymnastics, I love UFC, I love police officers, I love firefighters. I just try to give them the same enjoyment they give me.
I arrived in Hollywood twenty pounds overweight and as strong as an ox. But if I put on a white tails and tux like Fred Astaire, I still looked like a truck driver.
Psychology motivates the quality of analysis and puts it to use. Psychology is the driverВ and analysis is the road map.
In foreign countries such as Italy, the government puts strict-looking speed limit signs everywhere, but nobody ever sees them because light does not travel fast enough to catch the Italian drivers.
I love Taxi Driver. When I saw it the first time, I didn’t understand it, but I loved it because I thought the guy was really cool when he’s talking to himself in the mirror.
We are Americans. We – we – we are – we are doctors. We are investment bankers. We are taxi drivers. We are store keepers. We are lawyers. We are – we are part of the fabric of America. And the way that America today treats its Muslims is being watched by over a billion Muslims worldwide.
I was one of the many horses pulling the wagon and couldn’t escape left or right because of the will of the driver.

I’ve been a road-rat since I got my driver’s licence at 16, so I’ve probably gone across America 20 times.
Technology is probably the single biggest driver of productivity gains for the developed countries. For example, I think it’s much more important than free trade.
Contrary to some of the rhetoric we’ve heard, AB5 does not automatically reclassify any ride-share drivers from independent contractors to employees. AB5 does not provide drivers with benefits, nor does it give drivers the right to organize.
The driver of the power of intelligent systems is the knowledge the systems have about their universe of discourse, not the sophistication of the reasoning process the systems employ.
Capital investment in fixed assets that produce real goods is the actual driver of long term economic growth, and until slick financiers hijacked the country with ‘new economy’ mumbo-jumbo based on computer models and hype most Americans understood this.
It’s frustrating that you only have one or two, maybe three drivers that you can root for who are winning.
In the Eighties, I was everywhere. It was hard, because you didn’t see much of your children. I missed out on that. People make sacrifices – doctors, long-distance lorry drivers – and that was mine. I wasn’t left money, I had to go out and earn it.
I got wrecked by a dirty driver. There’s no other way of putting it. He’s cool with that. I have raced him really cool over the last year to be respectful to him and try to repair our relationship. It is not going to last, I can tell you that. Now weвЂ™ve got war.
You will never know the feeling of a driver when winning a race. The helmet hides feelings that cannot be understood.
You know what I mean. And by the way, you should slow down.вЂќ I sighed. вЂњYouвЂ™re kidding me. This is coasting. This is little old lady speed.вЂќ вЂњNASCAR drivers would have heart attacks. Slow down before we get a ticket.вЂќ вЂњChicken.
We are not going to win because you have a new head coach, any more than you are going to fix a flat tire by changing the driver. We will win the minute all of us get rid of excuses as to why we can’t win and stop wallowing in self-pity.
Police in Washington D.C. are now using cameras to catch drivers who go through red lights. Many congressmen this week opposed the use of the red light cameras incorrectly assuming they were being used for surveillance at local brothels.
The year most of my high school friends and I got our driver’s permits, the coolest thing one could do was stand outside after school and twirl one’s car keys like a lifeguard whistle. That jingling sound meant freedom and power.
The primary driver of final consumer demand is, of course, the level of disposable income.
Becoming a resident of a state may confer the right to get a driver’s license, but it does not and should not confer citizenship.
I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was a boy, though it seemed an unlikely outcome since I showed no real talent. But I persevered and eventually found my own row to hoe. Ignorance of other writers’ work keeps me from discouragement and I am less well-read than the average bus driver.
If we want every car on the road to be a Lyft, we need to make it incredibly convenient for drivers.
My father was a truck driver. That’s where it all started, and academically I was a disaster at school. My cousin got his name on the honour board; I, at Melbourne High School, I carved mine on the desk.

I don’t care what the other drivers think of me. They can say what they want.

I worked for the troops my entire time in the United States Armed Forces because we know in the United States Armed Forces that it’s not the generals and the colonels that win battles, it’s the soldiers: it’s the people at the front, the mechanics with their wrenches, the drivers moving the logistics back in the rear.
I’d say it [success in NASCAR] is probably 50% car, 30% driver and 20% luck. When it comes to the driving, if the driver doesn’t do his part, then it’s just kind of like multiplying a negative times a positive: The end result is going to be a negative.
There is a book yearning to come out of me: about how we can build the new collaboration economy, and the role of ‘openness’ in our quest for efficient use of resources and as a driver of innovation.
In New York, we tip everyone. We tip doormen, we tip cab drivers, and we tip bartenders at the bar. You’ll get quite an evil eye if you don’t leave a tip at the bar.
The relation of redemption and sanctification would be the ongoing relationship between the driver and God who is directing her. Now, if God isn’t directing him, he may go wild and do all sorts of things criminal and crazy.
The independence once represented by the car has been replaced by cell phones and social networks, which are now at the forefront of people’s expression of freedom and access. Once a symbol of ‘coming of age,’ many drivers are waiting longer to get their licenses.
The billionaires pay an effective tax rate lower than nurses or truck drivers. That makes no sense at all. There has to be real tax reform, and the wealthiest and large corporations will pay.
When I think of a rivalry, I think of two drivers who butt heads.
How is it that we hear the loudest yelps for liberty among the drivers of negroes?
I’d like to be a truck driver. I think you could run your life that way. It wouldn’t be such a bad way of doing it. It would offer a chance to be alone.
I shan’t be pulling the levers there but I shall be a very good back-seat driver.
There is a handful of drivers and teams that have a shot to win every single week, and there is no reason we can’t be among that group. That’s our goal, and if you’re in that position enough, it will go your way plenty and you’ll get your fair share.
Just imagine how many more cyclists could help save our cities and prevent further global warming by adopting electric bikes, if they received strategic and financial support similar to electric car drivers.
I think you grow up wanting to be a racing driver. Then it dawns on you that it’s not going to happen.

We’re way underpaid as race car drivers.
I remember being very influenced by ‘Taxi Driver’, and also Tommy Lee Jones in ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ a little bit.

You don’t get a mix of ovals and road/street course racing with this level of competition and speed anywhere other than Indy Car, and I think that’s why it has remained a popular choice for so many young drivers.
Writers now are putting total faith in designers at Apple and Amazon. It’s almost like a race-car driver having no input into how cars are designed.
Many of us who have cars have felt some form of extreme anger at other drivers because we feel they have put us in harm’s way. We might even envision ramming their cars or cutting them off in return, but do we actually do it? No, because the overwhelming majority of us never want to take another human life.
The Ford Falcon holds the proud title of Slowest Car Ever Built. In certain areas of the country you can go to a stoplight and find Falcon drivers who pressed down on their accelerators in 1963 and are still waiting for their cars to move.
Actors and writers and adjuncts are always looking for their next job: they find common cause with the female Uber drivers on contracts who have also been unprotected victims of sexual harassment.
I’ve never been derogatory towards taxi drivers.
Software substitution, whether it’s for drivers or waiters or nurses – it’s progressing. Technology over time will reduce demand for jobs, particularly at the lower end of skill set.
I never had any financial support or sponsors, and so I always had to, at every level, prove myself the hard way. I was five years in Japan before I got my debut at Le Mans. And I think this is a humble way to get through as a racing driver.
On data: We are the drivers, not the driven.
There are a lot of factors in the life of an F1 driver which can combine to make you believe that you are somehow above normality. I think that is a mistake to start believing that. But, at the same time, it is important to be confident.
For a driver to be driven by somebody else is an ordeal, for there are only three types of drivers: the too fast, the timid and oneself.
Discussions of health care in the U.S. usually focus on insurance companies, but, whatever their problems, they’re not the main driver of health-care inflation: providers are.
An optimist is a driver who thinks that empty space at the curb won’t have a hydrant beside it.
Whereas most technologies tend to automate workers on the periphery doing menial tasks, blockchains automate away the center. Instead of putting the taxi driver out of a job, blockchain puts Uber out of a job and lets the taxi drivers work with the customer directly.
I was in the car driving back, after having done a scene where I kill somebody, and I just said to the driver, “I can’t talk right now. I’m too emotional.” The whole car ride back, I was just crying.
I think social networks are really working for the drivers, because we’re able to talk directly to fans and they get first-hand information. And I think it’s great for the partners as well and the businesses that are involved in Formula One.
Creativity is every company’s first driver. It’s where everything starts, where energy and forward motion originate. Without that first charge of creativity, nothing else can take place.
I like looking back at people’s faces in the dark. I like noticing details that no one else sees. But I hate it in the old American movies when drivers don’t watch the road.
Passion is the driver of achievement in all fields. Some people love doing things they don’t feel they’re good at. That may be because they underestimate their talents or haven’t yet put the work in to develop them.
People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better. Any time you stand in line at the D.M.V. and look around, you’re like, ‘Oh, my God, I wish all these people were replaced by computer drivers.’
Instead of working to give robots personhood status, we should concentrate on protecting our human workers. If that means developing a more cooperative approach to ownership of autonomous trucks so millions of drivers are not left out in the literal cold, so be it.
To think that the ruler of the universe will run to my assistance and bend the laws of nature for me is the height of arrogance. That implies that everyone else (such as the opposing football team, driver, student, parent) is de-selected, unfavored by God, and that I am special,above it all.
In our economic structure, the people who work the hardest oftentimes make the least. I know migrant farm workers who do back-breaking labor every day, or Uber drivers and Lyft drivers who drive 10 to 12 hours a day in traffic. You can’t be lazy doing that kind of work.
Never break your putter and your driver in the same round or you’re dead.
If you got into a taxi and the driver started driving backward, would the taxi driver end up owing you money?
But due to the present regulations the other drivers have better chances again. This brings back the tension.
America is two Mack trucks colliding on a superhighway because all the drivers are on amphetamines.
Truck drivers stop me and say, ‘What is the poem for the day?’ or ‘Give me a poem for my girl.’ I have one on almost every subject.
I saw this train driver and said, ‘I wanna go to Paris.’ He said, ‘Eurostar?’ I said, ‘Well I’ve been on telly but I’m no Dean Martin.’ Mind you, at least the Eurostar’s comfy. It’s murder on the Orient Express isn’t it?
I opened up a frozen-yogurt business out of college. I didnt finish college; I went halfway, and then I worked for Joel Silver, the producer, as a driver for a year.
This is interesting. Researchers have found that people who drive drunk are more dangerous on the road than drivers who are high on marijuana. Don’t get too excited. It’s mostly because the drivers using marijuana are just sitting in the Taco Bell drive-through.
I don’t want to be the king, ‘I don’t need that, I want to race even without the helmet, I am the king.’ I am not like that. I just want to make things better for the drivers and for the safety.
I think you can learn from other people’s mistakes and other people’s strengths, and that is why I have always been watching, with particular attention, other drivers – and not only drivers at the top.
I’m not a fast driver. I’ve seen what speed can do.
If I sit next to a madman as he drives a car into a group of innocent bystanders, I can’t, as a Christian, simply wait for the catastrophe, then comfort the wounded and bury the dead. I must try to wrestle the steering wheel out of the hands of the driver.
My wife had her driversвЂ™ test the other day. She got 8 out of 10. The other 2 guys jumped clear.
Writing is the hardest work in the world. I have been a bricklayer and a truck driver, and I tell you вЂ“ as if you haven’t been told a million times already вЂ“ that writing is harder. Lonelier. And nobler and more enriching.
I guess Titanic because it made the most money. No, I`m kidding. I don`t really have a favorite. Maybe Terminator because that was the film that was the first one back when I was essentially a truck driver.
You ever say a phrase you say all the time at the wrong time, feel like a complete idiot? Something like, ‘You, too. You, too.’ I was getting out of the cab at the airport, and the driver goes, ‘Hey, have a nice flight.’ ‘You, too. You, too. You have a nice flight, too – in case you ever fly some day.
The connection of the car to the driver is the seat. You are strapped in tightly in it. On the motorcycle, you can move around. The G-forces feel different. It’s probably harder to change from the car to the motorcycle.
I just don’t like to drive. I’m not a bad driver, I just don’t like to drive.
It is a wry commentary on the value-system in the United States that one speaks there of “teacher training” and “driver education.”
Members of Congress should be compelled to wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers, so we could identify their corporate sponsors.
For ‘King Cole’s American Salvage,’ I rode around in the wrecker with a local driver and watched him deal with customers and hook up the cars. I watched the guy who tore apart the cars in the junkyard. I also wrote poems about those guys. I loved hanging around the yard.
Everybody is different. You’re always going to have disagreements with other drivers, unless you’re not competitive and you never run good. I deal with everybody differently. Most guys, I have a lot of respect for and I’d like to keep it that way. So I try to communicate with them and find some common ground.
I’m on the diet where you eat vegetables and drink wine. That’s a good diet. I lost 10 pounds and my driver’s license.
All scientists agree that evolution has occurred-that all life comes from a common ancestry, that there has been extinction, and that new taxa, new biological groups, have arisen. The question is, is natural selection enough to explain evolution? Is it the driver of evolution?
There’s obviously a lot of drivers that are in F1 because they’re one of the best drivers out there, so I can learn from everyone.
If it’s OK to register cars and license drivers, why is it not OK to impose similar legal responsibilities on gun owners?
The format of the race weekend is also very well thought out. We have enough practice time to get the cars well set-up and have a proper qualifying session where we can do as many laps as we like, which is great for the drivers and spectators.
It is obvious, our country has failed to provide two basic things which are the two main drivers of immigration, which are the lack of economic opportunity and a lack of security.
I feel very privileged Williams has selected me as one of their race drivers. The team has great heritage and I hope I can help write a good chapter in their history.
In the old days drivers were fat and tires were skinny.
When you’re not successful, people look at the driver and say, ‘what’s wrong with him?’ and sometimes the drivers look back and wonder ‘what makes you think you’re not the problem?’
I’m not for drunk driving – however, the states ought to decide. Different states have different penalties for drunk driving because they’re states and they get to do that. If people of one state want to be lighter on drunk drivers, they’re wrong. That’s their business.
