Não conseguem imaginar as forças você têm que se fazer para levar este Porsche 917 ao limite por 20 voltas.

Ao travar nas curvas Ford, notei que todas as pessoas apontavam contra a direcção do tráfego. Eu sabia que algo horrível tinha acontecido.

Larrousse was following me for four laps. First I thought it was you [Hans Herrmann]. Just before the quick right-hander the car drew abreast of me and I see that Larrousse is at the wheel. He fell back and I felt an impact. My car hit the guardrail in an acute angle. It started to play ping-pong, turned over. I saw flames and kiked out the door. I had not been buckled in. Then I jumped out, I ran into the forest and behind me the car exploded...

I knew in the 1969 race, that I had to risk everything. We had to change a wheel bearing, which cost us much time. In the last two hours of the race we even lost the top 200 revs. jacky Ickx and I overtook each other two to four times per lap. My brakes were finished and I started to think about a pit stop to get the pads replaced. My advantage over the third-placed car was big enough. But I felt that even Ickx was driving on the very limit, so something could easily happen to him as well. So, I finished the race without stopping, but Jacky managed the same and won.
