“If we could all be in tune with each other… or with ourselves… that’s the main thing. Then there would be no crime and no problems. If we could just respect the person next to you, the chain reaction would solve everything. It’s not just about giving money to feed the poor in Africa.”

– some wise words of Austrian Alex Wurz, former F1 driver (Benetton), test driver (McLaren) and winner of Le Mans 24 hours (in 2009)
