Driving onthe limit

"The limit" is a cliche among racing drivers, with very few having a real understanding of what the limit actually means.

"There is a great difference between faith and the fear of death or getting hurt.

"I just love racing, I just love the challenge to beat somebody else and in a many occasions even to beat myself."
