Davidson: I raised a few eyebrows – and I will win Le Mans!

“[To have to retire] was emotional – the car is your baby out there, she's your girl and your life's in her hands. You're rowing her along, wishing her well the whole way through; you know you're being hard on her, but to see her sitting there in the garage leaking and dripping oil out and looking like a complete sorry state does pull a chord that only a driver would know about, going through a race like this. We all had a bit of a lump in our throats when we finally had to throw in the towel.

“I'm never one to give up and I really enjoyed not giving up, but when you finally have to admit defeat it's hard, when your mind has been totally focussed on clawing back the victory, which we were in with a shout of. I saw the telemetry with my own eyes and I saw the strategy unfolding, and we were knocking on the door of getting back the victory – the fight was on. We put pressure on Audi, they started to make a few errors and they were only going to do so more as we continued to close the gap.

“As far as I'm concerned as a driver, I'm going to win this race one day. I don't care how long it takes – I'm going to be there standing on top of that damn top step of the podium if it kills me.”

As much as I dont see whats with the ga-ga over ant davidson in F1 a couple of years ago, I see he got boatload of skills. He's fast and arrogant which is exactly the quality you need in a racing driver.Fast means he can overtake people, and arrogant means he aint gonna let that place up easily which makes for exciting TV.
