Formula 1 Australia 2002
- James Allen: “What do you feel on the track when it’s this wet?”
Martin: “It’s alright. It’s fun, and all the spray’s behind you until you’re behind another car. It’s aquaplaning that scares the life out of you, when the car gets up on top of the water and you’re temporarily not in contact with the ground and you can head straight to the scene of the accident with the silliest little move of the steering wheel.”

"[Ralf Schumacher's] been in every gravel trap there is, more or less, this morning. It looked like he wanted to go to the beach all day."
"It's like the first day back at school." (referring to the number of driver errors made during the first race of the season)
"They should have had a more experienced driver in that Jordan." (referring to of course the fact that Jordan passed up the option of having Martin drive for them and went for youth over experience)
"Well I hope he's got his fuel card with him he could buy some more. If I was him I would get out of the car and head straight to the airport I would not want to come back to the pits!" (Alesi fails to acknowledge the pit-boards telling him to come in and runs out of fuel) "He's all over the back of Schumacher like a bad suit."
"Superman couldn't keep that pointing in the right direction."
"There's more grip on the black than on the green."
"What Frentzen needs to figure out is that he's a good 10 seconds faster than that Lola, so he needs to give it plenty of space!" (He was wrong. They were 15 seconds slower!)
