Go for the gap

When there is a gap, you either commit yourself to it, as a professional racing driver designed to win races, or you finish in seconds or third place.

I’m not designed to finish third. I race to win. If you no longer go for a gap that exists in your way, you’re no longer a racing driver.

Ayrton Senna

Not only as a racing driver: Go for the gap! Commit! Give your best and strive for the best.

Don’t give up

When you get into a tight place, and everything goes against you, ’til it seems as if you couldn’t hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that’s just the place and time that the tide’ll turn.
