Quotes after the retirement of Audi R10 TDI #2

Dindo Capello (Audi R10 TDI #2): "I lost the rear left wheel at Indianapolis corner at approximately 260 kph. It was a horrible feeling - I was just a passenger - I couldn't do anything to prevent a crash and I just hoped for the best. But thankfully I was in an Audi and I know that our engineers always put safety first. Despite such a heavy impact, I am in one piece and completely uninjured. But honestly no words can explain how I currently feel."

Allan McNish (Audi R10 TDI #2): "We had a strong car that dominated the race for almost 17 hours allowing us to build a lead of over three laps - thanks not only to the speed of our Audi but fantastic strategy and great teamwork. But then Le Mans bit us and bit us very hard. I feel extremely hollow because it now means it's another year before I can come back here again and have another crack at winning the world's greatest sports car race again."

Tom Kristensen (Audi R10 TDI #2): "Wow. We had a great car, had enjoyed perfect teamwork and were really dominating from the very first lap until Dindo's unfortunate accident. It's hard to believe and right now difficult to understand. Everything had been good and fine for us. Such an experience is hard on anyone, especially at Le Mans."
