"We'll all have to behave going through the Ford Chicane this year"
"Every year when we go back to Le Mans there is a change - where barriers are, where the run-off is, where kerbs are - and this year is no different. The Ford Chicane, the last corner, has been changed and it is a change for the better. It was always meant to be a very slow-speed corner but the way the kerbs were laid out meant some cars could really take advantage, making it a third gear corner for some and a second gear corner for others.
"Now it's a first gear corner for everyone. Bigger, angled kerbs means that you can't cheat. This will make life easier for everyone as there will just be one line through there."
