Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus, engineer and inventor, seen here in 1981 with Elio de Angelis for whom he had great affection, was famous for his very interesting quotes :

  • Adding power makes you faster on the straights, subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere.
  • Simplify, then add lightness.
  • Rules are for the obedience of fools and interpretations of smart men.
  • Any car which holds together for a whole race is too heavy.
