Motor Sport News - - Dan Wheldon -

“On the track, through­out the en­tire month of May, Dan Whel­don shined like I couldn’t be­lieve. It was a great team ef­fort, but a lot of that could be put down to Dan. He had a se­nior, vet­eran at­ti­tude of nur­tur­ing and as­sist­ing. He was never so com­pet­i­tive that he wouldn’t work with ev­ery­one as a team. It was a one-off: he had ev­ery right to not show ev­ery­one all of his cards, but he did. It ben­e­fited the whole team through­out the month.

“Dan was very gra­cious. I took it all in at the time, just ad­mir­ing what he was do­ing for us and how much he was putting in to it.”
