Ford v Ferrari 2019
Well, if my daddy was here today, he'd tell me to sit on down and leave the yakking to the college boys so, like my cars, I'll make this fast.
And how long did they tell you that they need it? Two, three hundred years?
And a lot of stuff broke. In fact, the only thing that didn't break was the brakes.
A month ago, this car was fun. Now, it won't even start. And when it does, it's 'Boom, boom, boom!'
I was thinking about that very question as I sat out there in your lovely waiting room.
We haven't worked out how to corner yet. Or stay cool. Or stay on the ground.
If you drive her like a school teacher, she'll clog up.

So, yeah. I say you got Ferrari exactly where you want him. You're welcome.

I watched that little red folder right there go through four pairs of hands... before it got to you.
'Course that doesn't include the 22 or so other Ford employees who probably poked at it before it made its way up to the 19th floor.
Give me one reason why I don't fire everyone associated with this abomination starting with you.
But our last lap... we clocked 218 miles an hour down the Mulsanne Straight.
That man is scared to death... that this year, you actually might be smart enough to start trusting me.
You're gonna build a car to beat Ferrari with... a Ford.

Hell, right now, we don't even know if our paint job will last the whole 24 hours.
We know how to do more than push paper.

.. it's a truly lucky man who knows what he wants to do in this world. 'Cause that man will never work a day in his life.
Suppose Henry Ford II wanted to build the greatest race car the world's ever seen, to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. What's it take?
It's about right now the uninitiated have a tendency to soil themselves.
Are you telling me I don't know how to drive my own car?

I don't speak Italian, but he ain't happy.

And there is one man running this company. You report to him. You understand me?
And that's what he's thinking about while he's sitting in Modena, Italy, right now.
So... that there, that is a sport car. You have to drive her like a sport car.

Paragraph 15.4, section 2b of the SCCA standard dictates all AF cars must have minimum trunk space of 20 inches by 12 inches by six inches.
Screw you, you limey prick! I want my money back.

But there are a few people who find something they have to do. Something obsesses them.
All due respect, sir, you can't win a race by committee. You need one man in charge.
Your trunk doesn't close. Ergo car fails standard.

Look out there. Out there is the perfect lap. You see it?

I will put you in the driver's seat at Le Mans if you just shut your mouth and let me do my thing.
Looks aren't everything.

Now, the good news, as I see it, is that even with all the extra weight, we still manage to put old Mr. Ferrari exactly where we want him.

Something that if they can't do it, it's gonna drive them clean out of their mind. I'm that guy.
