I don't walk barefoot. When I see a girl barefoot in the street... I'm like, 'Really?' But obviously, I can't judge someone for that first impression.
I've learned that 'love' is used a lot in the States for everything: 'I love that burger,' 'I love my shoes,' 'I love a friend.' To me, if it's overused, it loses meaning.
I can be sarcastic.
In Venezuela, which doesn't have thousands of prestige universities like the U.S., people usually stay at home while attending to college. After they graduate, they move for a job or get married.
Lake Taupo is on the north island of New Zealand and in the countryside. I absolutely fell in love with it.
I would never disrespect anyone.
I'm busy, man, too busy. There's a lamentable absence of free time.
I'd rather have a hot dog than caviar.
Just take each race as it comes and have fun.
My reputation is aggressive this and aggressive that.
I get this a lot: 'Oh, can you take a picture with my baby? Can you hold the baby?' I don't want to hold your baby! I'll hold my baby. I don't like holding someone else's baby. I'm serious! You never know what could happen. It's such an awkward position you're put in, and it's like, 'No, sorry.'
When people are nice to me, I'm nice to them.
I think it's good for sports cars to be united, to be just one. I think it's good for the fans. When you have two different series, fans don't know which way to go, when you only have one I think it's good for the sport.
You've gotta respect everybody. If they race hard against you, you've got to race hard against them. It's very simple; if there's respect both ways, there's no problem.
I get fit taking my bike out in the woods.
You know, I think in Europe NASCAR is not regarded as high as it should.
I don't remember the first time I won. I remember the first time I lost, and it sucked. It was go-karts; I was, like, 6 years old.
I've made a lot of friends over the years through racing, but we weren't necessarily teammates.
I really like the really high banked tracks.
Now, when it's time to get down to business, I get down to business.
I love the American way of life.
When you plan something, it never works.
In Colombia maybe 95% of the population follow Formula One. It's crazy.
Obviously, when I play well and win a trophy, I feel happy about myself.
Sometimes you look at footballers and think they're selfish or they don't bring a good image to society. But sometimes people underestimate footballers and their capacity to have a strong opinion and sympathy for others.
