You have never enough time to get used to the new car, the new car is a new challenge.
Since the last months of 2019 people asked about the “Ott Tanak” movie. What is it about: drivers, driving, cars, people or drama with heroes? Let’s do without any bets and spoilers. You will know it anyway. Now, catching the moment to say the best real-life lessons from Ott Tanak the movie, more than just about world rally championship. Those tell the real motivation and true racing passion in life.
- Rallying is a long game, it’s not won and lost on a single stage
- You’ve just given your absolute all through the stage. These boys are risking their lives every time they start the stage. The adrenaline is pumping everything is going. If they had a great stage, if they had a bad stage, it doesn’t matter. All this emotion there.
- In rallying, one usually doesn’t get a second chance. It’s such a small community. When you mess up, everyone will know what’s the story and they don’t want to let you back in.
- The car has the ability to go fast. The driver has to have the braver, the skill, the experience to get speed out of it.
- Ott, you’ll never be a racer. Don’t even dream about it. This is what motivates. I said to myself “F*** it” I’ll go through heaven and hell, but I’ll make it no matter how. (Ott Tanak)
- When he looks at you, there’s no smile, no expression, he’s just staring at you. He looks like a serial killer, he takes all his energy on one card: to win the title!
- These boys will compete under any circumstance. Rain, snow, hail, hurricane. It doesn’t matter what’s happening, they’ll still go out on a rally car.
- You got the smell of hot brakes, and hot rally car, he tires are smoking and you just realise what man and machine have been though.
- I’ve learned that when I can’t analyze Ott or fail to understand the situation, silence is always the weapon that works. (Martin Järveoja Ott’s co-driver)
- I know they (co-drivers) work very hard, but all I say or wish they’d do is for our common goal. In the end, if I win, he wins. (Ott Tanak)
