Following are comments from our drivers Justin Wilson and Graham Rahal on the death of Paul Newman.
"I am extremely saddened to hear about Paul's passing. He was a great
guy to be with around the track. He was one of a kind. Obviously I am
just thinking of his family and wishing them well while they are trying
to deal with this. It can't be easy. He's going to be missed, not just
in the motor racing world but in every area that he participated in, in
his life. He affected so many people in a positive way. I'm going to
miss him and am fortunate to have known him."

"It has been a very upsetting 24 hours for the team and my family. Paul
has been a huge part of both my success as well as my father's and he
will be greatly missed. He was a tremendous man, one that everyone
should model their lives after. My sincere condolences go out to the
