"I’ve always had a very good life. But everything that I’ve gotten out of life was obtained through dedication and a tremendous desire to achieve my goals…a great desire for victory, meaning victory in life, not as a driver.

One day, you’ll achieve your aim and you’ll be successful." -AYRTON SENNA
