Italy votes to cut number of MPs and senators
"Cara the initiative. First of all to reduce the number of MP's this was a big headline initiative of the five Star Movement. Why was that? Did they have a sincere belief in reducing the the role of government in Italian life or did they just think that you never lose votes by leading up on politicians? Well, the movement five stars as people who do follow Italian politics will know was born essentially as an anti elitist movement from the very onset in fact, it was never. Going to be a party, I told at the very beginnings it's very point was to remove the privilege of the ruling elite and the the the reduce reducing the number of of MP's was seen as part of that historically There is a consideration, the one of the main considerations from the point of view of the movie stars and other parties that have. Box. This referendum is to save on the cost of politics whether the cost is actually relevant enough. The savings are relevant enough to actually make significant difference is to be determined but it's difficult to oppose such measures from the point of view of symbolism writes in the. PD. So the center left Party, the Democrat, party has had to back this referendum eventually partly because we are they are now in a ruling coalition. With the move and five stars and they don't want to be seen at odds with one another because that could put the government risk. But also because nobody wants to be perceived as the party who's protecting the elites ultimately because the cost thing is nonsense isn't it's one billion euros over ten years which in the context of the national budget of a country, the size of Italy is beans it is and that's been remarked a number of times As I said, it's more about the symbolic gesture than anything else in front. One of the a practical consequences that this reduction will have is that a will significantly decrease the amount of representation. So that right now, there is one MP in the Chamber of Deputies. Every. Ninety six, thousand, Italians dutton number will now go up to one each one, hundred, fifty, one, thousand Italians, and think the will be particularly seved at the level of the Senate because the Senate is elected kind of via regional route so that there is different electoral colleges, etc, and set in regions will see the number of their elected representatives go down by or more than half, and that's significant from the point of view of how much. Swayed will have in the chamber. Extremely significant and does appear to be the obvious drawback of this game. Nevertheless, it was very popular among your fellow. Italians with seventy percent voting for why is that? Do you think? Do you think that's an if you think about Europe as a whole? Is that an unusually high number more than usually sick of the people who are running the country? I think one of the reasons why the result was so high as because it was ultimately backed by lot of parties so that the party division line was less dark than it would've been now the situations in which these referendums have been politicized the moving five stars of course voted yes it's electorate voted compactly. Yes. Like almost ninety six percent or something this deal moving five-star electorate voted. For, yes. But the PD also officially backed it and the vast majority of the electorate of the Lega and all the rest of the center right also did. So when you sum up all these different parties that there's less of a political kind of undercurrent to it, other than a win for the moon five stars and a not rocking of the current political establishment because ultimately PD also bacteria. That's the political meaning that you're going to be gleaning out of it. So on the subject of gleaning political meaning from things, these regional elections were held at the same time. What did they tell us? It's very interesting because a lot of people over the last few years have wondered whether Salvini could get back on on his horse. Matteo Salvini. Yeah, no indeed and these regional elections where a very important appointment because it's the first time that Italians do vote after covid right? And there were a number of regions that historically have been left wing regions that were thought. They could go to the center right and that hasn't largely happened the centre-left has held in many of the places where it wanted to hold a apart from a mark wearing fact, the candidate that's now become the governor doesn't come from Salvini Spotty, but from Italy Italia, which is the other far right party but less of a kind of northern secessionist heritage more of the Roman heritage right. What we're seeing across the bode board in these results is that Salvini is losing grip on many things, other challenges from within the center right IRA merging not least Georgia Maloney the leader of Fratelli d'italia. So this other far right party not least. Competition within his own party Ziad. The governor of Benetton very popular in his region because of his management of Cavite has skyrocketed to six to seventy six percent. Results in in the region and so I think we're what we're seeing is that the left wing is holding where it probably didn't even think it would hold this much and that context government despite content not being an elected official of the centre-left has actually given a lot more credibility to the current coalition that I think anybody would have expected doesn't strike you though that this is a a left versus right question on more of a professionals versus populists question because a like a pandemic is about a stern test that any government can face and obviously Italy was one of the first places in Europe to face it on a very large scale. Is it possible that something of this sort has reminded Italian voters that maybe there is something to be said for voting for blandly competent and relatively calm people who are actually capable of doing stuff i. think that's exactly the point partly because the populist narrative, very much centers around narratives around you know migration and other issues that don't really relate necessarily to what many Italians rating about right now, which is administration economic recovery, which is returning to schools on you know relatively less appealing because they are much more ordinary budget still, very, very important concerns and interestingly you mentioned you know that the rise of the. Leader? Many, of the regional leaders. The. Regional governors are now coming onto the national stage and where in the past I think we used to see a lot more mess come into national politics right now we're seeing a lot more of these figures that used to be very much in the background because not many people focused on regional governors. Suddenly they were putting a spotlight because of covid this new whole generation of politicians coming to the full, and we will have to see in the next few years. How many of them will make the jump to national politics?
The Check Yourself Episode
"Episode is All about perspective privilege. And how far we've come as collective outsiders here at outcast were always looking at ways to celebrate and shine. Light on our otherness. Do we ever take our progress for granted. Today we're GONNA take a closer look at those moments when you're suddenly reminded of that otherness. Even after years of feeling accepted loved and to start us off. Here's a clip of Gabe in deciding. Who's the guests? What do you think you are probably like nine? Think it changed when I started watching drag rates like watching drivers for the longest time. It was like this is so gay and then it was like wait. This is internalized homophobia and I started watching it rather just be more gay so much much much more find. You gave me a ninety. You gave me one nine. I X. I know what. It's like a fun nod to sports. Not like the actually following actually watches sports for five. That's not gay. Was that you guys nice so rude but it's all fun and Games but this idea of rating ourselves on a spectrum is really not that foreign in this generation. I read this incredible article that we're GONNA post in the show notes about your privilege score. The topic of privilege is buried. Twenty nineteen and. I'm hoping is not very twenty twenty but I'm fascinated about the idea of outcasts and how people would compare their otherness. One of my sayings are GonNa get mad at me about this. But I've always said just because people are starving in the world doesn't mean I have to enjoy hunger but I feel like that's a real condition. People are living with right now. The basic gist of the article. Though is that there is a framework of otherness with seven factors gender age sexual preference income mental and physical ability race and religion. If you're outside the majority in any of these criteria you're considered other but if you have an intersection of multiple factors you've really hit the Jackpot about this. What's more is that within? Each of these factors there in entire spectrum where a person might land for instance Personal finances has like an extreme range based on where you live geographically those things different experiences with you the issue that I have is. There's a negative result in this This class system of how outside the norm you are making some people feel not other enough for example in the video clip that we just shared with game in deciding. Who's the guest? It starts to become a class system within a minority group. So I thought it'd be a great thing for us to discuss for all of our outsiders who have lots of thoughts on this lay them. Honor lay them on you so I think it kind of boils down to US realizing I mean I've person realize yes. I'm a white gay man and the privileges real and using that said privilege to lift others up super important And knowing that that privilege exists while not exacerbating with that privilege is in my taking advantage of it or not taking him into it but like is we have to use it for good. Use Your privilege for good and when you try to do that or when. We've tried to that when I've tried do that. Sometimes it's it feels like a competition Because you know you're white gated you don't know what the plight of at my story is. Yeah you're right. We all have our own stories and we all have our own on things but it doesn't mean it makes our stories any less valid As far as otherness and I think that's kind of what you hit on is like we shouldn't be out other each other It should be you know we should celebrate each other's otherness As any sort of outsider. Or other I believe. There should be a unanimous sympathy regardless of where you are in the extremity of that spectrum. You need to help move the line forward for everyone you can't in Caitlyn. Jenner is a perfect example of someone who doesn't do this They have very specific views about trans rights but have counter- countering views about gay inclusion in traditions like marriage and so I always think that The privileged score is such a detriment because it starts to Put a roadblock for someone who is either more or less other the new depending on on on if the goal is extreme other Nassar if the goal is extreme inclusion. Yeah and I always try to use anytime. Someone approaches me about you know. I didn't think you said enough. I kind of use that as a learning moment in like what could I have done more? But it's there's always there always seems to be like a roadblock or at least a speed bump when it's like I'm trying to use my platform you know through the foundation throughout Wad to lift others because I feel and I think you'll feel a rising tide lifts all boats right so I If I can do something that lifts part of our community up it should lift all of our community up but people in the community. Don't some people in the community? Don't feel that way they feel like oh you're just trying to boost up the L. in the acronym or the B. In the acronym or the tea in acronym ignoring something else in a Mike. No because we're a collective queer folk and if we're elevating any of our folks were elevating everyone but I feel like there's a lot of criticism within our community because of this otherness. We don't feel seeing him we don't feel heard and I'm like yes I get that and we're trying to make sure that everyone feels seen in her. But the minute you attack someone who's trying to lift everyone up it. It really not sustainability instead of doing what made you think of the panel that you just hosted Soho House for inclusion in athletics and Sport Because it was really a great Sexual diversity on the stage but I know that you received a lot of negative feedback about racial representation but it was hard for me and I imagine it was impossible for you after all the work you poured into. Its here that because the panel was not about race representations or it was about Gender and Sexuality Representation in sport it can. Everything can't be everything all the time or it doesn't have appointed no in weekends the progress that we're striving. Yeah I mean in. Our community is literally a united colors of Benetton ad right every race. Every religion every every color of the rainbow every sexual identity in if I try to put together a panel of their represents all of us it would literally be a forty person panel. We'd be there for two and a half weeks and that was kind of it will be Super Fun. But you know it's it's it's hard because you were me. I want everyone to feel represented and I want to be able to do that but I think if you hone in on one specific thing will didn't do that or the foundation didn't do that in that one aspect you have to pull broad reach if you look back at all the things. We're doing all the things that are community does. Everyone is getting a piece of the the resistance. Migrelief raw fighting. I feel like there's a way to hear people out and understand why they're coming from like why they might have felt that way. Not just about that panel. But I'm saying more dinner. I think there's a way to hear people understand. Try to understand where they're coming from and recognize. Individuality and why representation matters and still like you said well. A rising tide lifts all boats. So if we can hear people out and understand their feelings and also I mean. I'm also thinking to just sitting here like we're all saying this as people that are not people of color I have no. I have no idea what that would feel like. I don't I don't want I hope people listening that maybe you are a person of color. I I hope it's not that we are trying to not listen to know. I know what you're saying but it frustrated me when we launched the PODCAST instagram. We received three messages that criticize that there were no hosts of color as a policy in my whole life. I always say don't suggest a change that you're not willing to make yourself if you are upset by our house and you're person of color volunteer to be a guest get involved. Raise your voice. We literally beg on every episode for people to provide feedback mentioned gas make connections for us so I think that will put together for Soho House was an inclusive panel that is asking for representation and stories and voices had the opportunity be lifted as opposed to pointing the finger in criticizing like that would have been a great opportunity to extend the conversation or host. Another one you know it can always be in the spirit of progress and I think that we are in this culture right now this where where everyone is trying to cancel or point out the negative and I have always been an optimist. Obviously coming from a place of privilege. I have to understand that. It's easier for me to be an optimist but I still believe that if people who are making negative comments actually spend the same amount of energy creating a second platform to further those stories. We would definitely benefit more than we do from the negative
Paul Theroux's Mexico Journey
"More than fifty years of writing about his epic journeys in Travel Books and novels. Paul through has recently finished a series of road trips on the back roads of Mexico. He wanted to see for himself who lives there how they live and what's really behind the headlines about a migration crisis from south of the US border and by the way you'll have to pardon my weak voice at the time we recorded our interview. It's better now. Paul theroux welcome Doc Ricketts a pleasure to be with you. You know this is such an exciting adventure you went on and right at the beginning of the book you write the Mexican border in the edge of the known world only shadows and danger beyond it and working figures. Hungry criminal predatory fanged fanatical enemies an ungovernable rabble eager to pounce on the unwary traveller so you decided to travel. Tell us where you went on this trip. And why by the rest of that senators and a Tutti fruity of grizzled gringos accident. So why why. Because I noticed that people were stereotyping Korea Typing Mexicans Mexicans who come across the border why they come that illegal looking for welfare making trouble and I thought one of the reasons as we traveled your a great traveller. Rick is to destroy the stereotype to find out what people are really like. What's this story and we find the come from? All sorts of places is in Mexico they might be billion as they might be millionaires. That might have no money at all. Some people in Mexico have less than the average person in Kenya or Bangladesh Rush. So it's not a simple situation but to see it at its best or to see it most clearly. I thought I WANNA go alone. I want to go on my own car. I WANNA the drive up and down. The border. The border that everybody talks about but no one knows that firsthand as written about much and I want to see it drive along the aboard and then drive deep into Mexico and I thought I bought a car for this purpose secondhand car. That wasn't very notable and off. I went not very noticeable but it had Massachusetts license plates on it. That was a little unfortunate. The police said you know they. They looked at my plates. And then they pull you off the road and they say Whether or Saturday do you know what I can do to you and you say what exactly do you want. And then they say pay me some more Didi. Is that the open. This happens but people say how awful and I think. Yeah how awful but on the plane of snakes is travel book and travelers travel writers. Rav Paul Writers have the last word so I have the last word and that's a side of Mexico. The police are excited. Mexico that exists and as travelers were not looking in for la La land in Orlando. We're looking for the reality. Go south of the border. We're looking to see things as they are the good the bad the ugly the the fun that whatever it is the sunshine the rain you know I was the Peace Corps joined the Peace Corps nineteen sixty three and I went to Central Africa. I didn't know what I was GonNa find was into the wild blue yonder and what I found was not at all what I was expecting. Not at all our guest right now and travel with. Rick Steves is author Paul. He just published an account of his road. Trips from the back roads of Mexico his new book introduces us to the people he met and explains what he learned about life in Mexico far from the comforts of resorts in the safety. Excuse tollways the books called on the plane of snakes. Your book is about the wall and I'm fascinated by walls in my travels. The Berlin Wall the walls between the Protestant and Catholic neighborhoods in Belfast. The wall of between Palestine and Israel and in this wall I remember when I was in the Holy Land on one side. The Wall looked a certain way. And then the other from the other side that looked a lot different tell us about the actual wall standing there especially on the Mexican side looking at it. What's it like where the wall is a big piece of iron mongering That looks like it looks like a prison wall. I mean it looks ah fence it has slats in it. The first one that I saw was in Nogales may be eight years ago or possibly more and it wasn't a wall that you could see through. It was sexually big iron plates steel plates. I guess and there were there. Were Rusty thirty feet high. You couldn't see through. It looked like it didn't look like offense at all actually looked like a wall That's now slats. What is it looked like it? It looks like something that is surmountable. Looks like you could climb over and people do it. Looks like could tunnel under it and people do it also looks very beautiful. It looks like a piece of sculpture by the artist Christo it looks like Krista went to the border and said I'm going to show the world. What a border looks like in metal and so the the fence to steal border fence goes up and down through hill and Dale undulating up? As far as the I can see and you think how amazing but how primitive too because house obviously keep any vote. No when I go as a traveler to these walls the odd thing is I can pass them easily. I can go from Israel to Palestine I in the cold where I could go between East and West. You were south of the wall and you wrote about the women in the diners there that kind of saw you you as a maybe a ticket to the north. It must have been interesting for you to be in these hardscrabble. Little spots in the wall was so close and you could just waltz right back and forth. They couldn't not only that it's only yeah waltzing bank in Nogales Arizona. You visit door in the wall. The first time I saw it there was a turnstile where you're in a street in Arizona. You know with parked in the sunshine. POKKA walk down the end of the street. Go through the door in your in Mexico is your show you I mean I showed by. Id and just by walking through a door. That for travel is such an amazing experience to me. It was an experience of the kind that I'd I'd never had before I've cross borders. You've been through many borders but most borders that are memorable you walk across Kenya Ethiopia China China and Russia Kazakhstan Benetton wherever you know Canada and say but Mexico is it's the wall and also there's another language behind the wall is cuisine beyond the wall and the women that you mentioned some of whom want to go over the wall around it to work in a motel or a hotel in the states Have left children behind husband's behind and the going what I found. Is that coming to make a living
Pentagon Advises Members Of Armed Forces Not To Use Home DNA Testing Kits
"The Pentagon is advising members of the armed forces not to use home DNA testing kits like ancestry and twenty three in me in a memo sent out last Friday the department of defense says DNA testing companies have been offering military discounts and other incentives to DOD personnel Yahoo news first reported on the memo Jennifer cousin Frankel writes about bio ethics and genetic testing for science magazine and she's with us now high hi thanks for having me why would the Pentagon make this kind of request what information is at risk here they were a little bit vague in there on their memo that that was released but I noticed two different points that that jumped out at me the first is that these genetic tests can provide health information that is they noted have varying degrees of validity and they're not always accurate so there is a concern that inaccuracies could pose a higher risk to people in the department of defense military personnel Benetton mandated to reveal their medical history to the military exactly for example if if you do one of these tests and you find out that you according to the test have a higher risk of type two diabetes or breast cancer or dementia in the future there may be a requirement that you disclose that information so so that's a concern especially if the test results aren't accurate and the second concern cited in the note is that if this genetic data is accessed by outside parties potentially the governments of other countries that could put people in the military at some risk potentially what do you think the defense department means when in the memo it refers to potential quote unintended security consequences and possible mass surveillance and the ability to track individuals without their authorization this isn't my area of expertise no one could certainly speculate they're probably being cautious about data collected on their troops and this is another large set of data potentially and it still has a lot of unknowns so we're still learning a lot about the DNA that's being cut collected you know what these different variants mean for different diseases whether the raise risk of different diseases that they haven't been linked to yet you're dealing with all of these uncertainties once the data is collected it's collected and there's you know we can't on collective so I think there may be worries about where is this going to go one year two years five years from now I think another concern is around de identified DNA data there's a lot of effort to strip away the personal identifiers from data and then and then study it in different ways or access it in different ways and there have been some discoveries that that it's often very difficult to truly de identified data and of course department of defense may have other ideas that that they're choosing not to share but they obviously feel that there is is some potential risk here and they're trying to steer clear of it we reached out to a couple of the larger companies operating the space ancestries sent us a statement saying they do not target military personnel with discounts Furthermore protecting our customers privacy is our highest priority twenty three in me sent us a statement which says in part our customers should be assured we take the utmost efforts to protect their privacy and that the results we provide are highly accurate do you have thoughts about what these companies are saying here I would say they're definitely examples of inaccuracies and some of them and the companies you know to some degree are up front in their testing reports that there can be inaccuracies depending on on what we're talking about here and part of that is because this is an ever evolving field you know what we understand about a gene today is not necessarily what we understand about it a year from now that's one issue and and and other issues there can be disagreements about you know what the strip of DNA is telling us and also these companies are they're regulated in a different way than than many labs that offer information back to patients so yes I think there have been examples of of inaccuracies out they're not necessarily from those two specific companies that that you're quoting but from some of these direct to consumer companies in general Jennifer cousin Frankel writes about bio ethics and genetic testing for science magazine thanks for speaking

"benetton" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Well, now Ross was was going that was a known thing. It was Rory. We weren't quite sure about the time. But some. Rawson flavio. I was chief engineer time. Russell flavio. But when you may to to become technical director when when Ross left, and I really didn't want to do the I had the best job and stone. Why did I want anything else? But they. Persuaded me that was the right thing to do. Which in retrospect, I'm so glad I did too. But then when Michael said, well, what about for aria? I said, you know, taking on this challenge. And if I go to for our I'm just going to be a rice engineer, and I've got a chance Benneton being technical director. And things I wanted to do lots things add let so much from Ross wonderful guy to work for Assad Rory with me had been my mental for really since. I started in in Formula one even a little bit before, you know, he'd been a friend knocker coal. So I I was absolutely determined. I was gonna make Benneton work. Without Michael not to me was much more interesting in a much harder challenge than going to for Ari repeating it all every game with a red shirt on instead of blue shirt. I didn't seem should traction in that when I guess we talked about. But it's big it's ready to become a championship. So she Maccabi the Rajoy always after that. They was the right team. But with not necessarily the the right drivers. Well, I it was a bit more than that. Because to be honest. We then went into an era where we were really struggling for money. I remember. As you when you were in the championship. You have see reap the benefits of it. Both in terms of the the the money that used to get from from Bernie in those days and. And the sponsorship, and I remember we thought long and hard about what we should be doing with it. And essentially that money went into building Wintel attend Stein. Presenters we moved into the late nineties. It really was was difficult. And it's funny. When people talk about the cost of gang racing these days, which. Yes, they are incredibly high. But people talk about the cost of engines as part of it now in the late nineties. I remember signing off on seventeen million pounds for engines, the soup tech engine, and at the end of the getting another Bill because we done more testing than we plan to do. So you know, it was really expensive going going racing in in those days and Benneton being a private company better. I successful very wealthy company. They weren't prepared to start pouring money into formula. One in the way for aria that time particularly were doing so becoming more and more difficult and the late nineties became very much about. Really? I think I could see the writing on the wall. And I knew that only the only future we could have was to become a manufacturer's team. And so that that was very much ambition in ninety eight ninety nine to two hope that the manufacturer will come along bias because Reynaud was the the sort of logical woman using their engines they were making noises about coming into to Formula one Flavio Briatore he was not involved with the team at that time, the Benneton family put their own people in and move Flavio on Flavio wanted to get back. He was the sort of middleman between Benetton and Renault. And so that's the way it went. But I think to answer your question. No until until we became a manufacturer team built the team up again to what was required by the mid two thousand which was. An immensely different team to mid nineties in terms of size in terms of ability in terms of equipment until we got to that we weren't going to another championship. Whereas for our with ad. They were ready. So very logical thing for Michael today. Of course, it in the end, it was it was that renting yourself nonetheless that not throwing she backed off the perch. Yes. Irony in that isn't an. Well, thank you very much in Science Fantastic. Tom your rights the benefit somebody worked so closely with him stalk about him. So thanks very much persimmons. Pleasure fascinating stuff. From Pat Simmons really interesting to see what it was like working up close with with Markelle Schumacher, Glenn. How do you think we should look back those Benetton years?.

"But one of the things we gained in those days was we started to learn a lot about vehicle modeling, and how to to really understand our cars a lot better. And I think at Benetton our our engineering group had been particularly good at and I think that that helped to produce a call for ninety four that had very good ride. Very good mechanical grip we hadn't exploited the aero in quite loot. Same way that some of the other active 'cause had so we still had very benign Eric characteristics. Let's say we recognize we needed to be more benign in ninety four. So we had to allow it. Right. But I think unfortunately, there were. How can I put it elements within the team who perhaps weren't ready to to win a championship? And I guess what? I'm alluding to. There is that it's rather ashamed that the upper management of the the team went into battle with the FAA right at the start of the season. And of course, I clouded everything through through the whole season. Yes, we won the championship. But I have to say that's a season. Many aspects of it. I really didn't enjoy I didn't enjoy the innuendo that that came from it. And to honest that even to this day still exists since gore. It was also your back is almost another writer to fact, hasn't it? Now, the trashing control things all emanating from. I mean, people regard is. Yes, exactly. It hasn't been elevated fact because it's not fact, and and state very very clearly, but I know what you mean. And this is one of the troubles with with the internet. It allows things to be said so often the the fiction does turn into two apparent fact fake news, no near the side of the water. And I absolutely issue. You know, if they're being anything illegal on that car as the rice engineer as the head of engineering, I cannot believe that anyone could uphold willow. My is done something that shouldn't have been there. And in fact, with the the aspect of the launch control traction gross stuff, when they f- I found this sort of area on the just the interface, so far there's nothing underneath it. And we looked at the data in in some. Detail. Even the FAA inspector that time said, okay, I say those up so easy. No way. There's any traction control on this cop because I wasn't news about who's about politics. And that's what I meant. When earlier when I said was the team ready to win the championship? Probably not gonna keep on the right side of the governing body you do. Absolutely. And you've got to have I won't say reference. Beagle have respect and is true today as it was. Let's see race bounds and disqualifications. Absolutely. They it went from bad to worse because it actually ended up being a personal battle in. That's a that's a real shame. And it's something that to be honest didn't. Didn't bring much credit to Ospel. The other big story of not fall dominates self see the death of which kind of suddenly elevated multiple from the kind of coming man's on star driver in almost instantly before he had the chance to win a championship. I mean, he seems to respond to that very well. But did that was any impact on him that suddenly he was he was the favourite? He was the star driver. And did that no. Tool because I don't think in his mind elevated him at all I think he felt he'd being completely ready for that. Probably for a couple of years probably since that win at Spall. To him. It was just a. A logical progression to be we'll jump in. And I don't think he ever had any doubts that would be an identity ever need outside. It was going to come soon now with ATMs tragic death. Of course, it it peps to easier for him. But at the same time, actually, some of the changes that were made to the causes the result of that. And for those who don't remember who it was decided that really needed to slow the cars down looking back on anything. I was particularly good decision because they accident nothing to do with the cause being to faster anything like that..

"And in his early days and had always not trouble abilities every bit as much as my Cosa might even argue a little bit more. But what he didn't do was he didn't build the system around him so primary things like, fitness, and what have you and that little attention to detail. They weren't there before Mike. That's what Michael brought that's why Michael was a game changer because suddenly if you're gonna compete at the front, you we're going to compete against Michael. And you you had to be game to to that level. And plenty of drivers found that quite difficult. I guess in the position, but it's almost there. There was a recognition that this was a driver of his team on the up quite one championships, but was a rice winning same. And that then suddenly when you've got this driver who something a little bit a little bit more than the average. Shall we say see PK been there before? But that was an incident when races he was the jury. He may be was suddenly realize that she we go go. Hey, maybe can take away is out the kind of feeling you had even early ninety two. Yeah. Very much. You quite write about Benetton knew we were team finishing third in championship. Fourth in champion said full fifth third, and we were at so the level which goes. We were happy. We were proud of. We were an independent team. We went to particularly well finance team or anything that we were proud of what we would doing. But all of us everyone in Formula One's competitive. Now, it's it goes without saying we wanted to that step on. And it wasn't obvious to us. What we needed for though that step forward, and then Michael came along. And I think we suddenly realized that that was very large part of what we needed. I I'm not saying the team was perfect. And we just needed a good drive because that's being disingenuous to drivers before. Michael some of whom are very good. Indeed. But I think Michael just showed us that. Actually, it's not just that ability that the had the the whole approach to racing all of us needed to change. And certainly on the engineering side. We did make changes in the same way that the Michael had them with the driving. Aspects of the sport. I'm looking at maybe a ninety two the race off see the stands as the spur victory where he made a Qatar causing. He was based on having sites. Martin rumbles. Factsheet those while he's behind Martin. That's right. He he was actually he he was in front of Martin. And it was where their own wet ties. It was drying on this difficult situations where you know, you're trying to push a little bit more pushed a little bit too. Hard took to the grass nothing. Big just off the track limits, but noth- for Martin to get in front and Michael straight back onto to Martin's tail and first thing he sees is that Martin's ties his wet toz stunning to chunk, which is what happens when it's running in to dry conditions to to overheat. And and the rabbit comes off in little chunks from the wet ties. So immediately it was on the fast part coming back down to to the pets. And he realizes that. Thing to do is to make the pit stop now because it's a another car. Remember, how long Spar is? But his his along track is an another lap with been very significant so straight in the pets, and that that was a winning move. There's no doubt about it. So shows that -bility to have that confidence tomatoes may this hour. That was a litany of podium finishes in that seasonal of any other ones that stand out in your mind, maybe wouldn't wins. I think that that is the the one where you know, he's great to see what he did. But as said, you know, we we were competitive. Right from the start that year. To be honest. I I find it difficult to remember the, you know particular events like that, I'm certainly not motoracing historian. I was in the best races next one. So I do find it difficult to remember that. But there's a season. I can certainly say that it was a really great season really really enjoyed that season from the following season. Ninety three I sort of remember a lot more and in this real disappointment Monico where we retired leading. But yeah, some some great podiums could finish his and and there were periods looking at nonstop Ninety-three where he had a few dust up..

"Owner in the college those days five speak Gibbs 'cause but pretty quick we got we got a call quite nicely balanced. But it was definitely a little bit nervous through that that corner and. Michael, I think it'd been used to sort of being a bit of an engineer himself, and hey wanted certain things done to the kind. Now, the so the classic things we put a stiffer front row bar on. Should we take a bit of from way off? But I I knew that those with things that we're going to compromise the rest of the lap. What I wanted to do for the a stiffer spring because I was pretty sure I knew the problem was which is getting to technical colleges bouncing on the bump rubbers and things and he wasn't a tool convince I said, look, I'm the engineer. Let's just do it. And we did it in the car was just absolutely perfect or on the Lapland. And I think that was you know, the singular point at which we established that bond that he was a great racing driver. And I was sort of Attica engineer is interesting questions, and we talked about engineering drivers. But there is such thing as a driver he goes too far in in. That regard you want certain level of feedback button for the drive wants time. They're not the engineer. Yeah. Yeah. You on was Michael in the right sort of. Absolutely. That's absolutely, right. And of course, Michael was of an era when when I was working with him on the cusp of what you where the the the day track was issued if he liked passed from the the driver in the eighties because he didn't have any electronic detractors issue. Ceo you one day aquisition unit was the guy behind the steering wheel. Who had to tell you everything today. Of course, he needs to tell you virtually nothing because you have so much data Michaels in that transition period where we were we had a fair amount of day to not the sophistication we have now. So there there was certainly a tendency when Michael came into formula on even in his sports car days, I think it had to do a fair bit of the sort of engineering, and and understanding of things whereas we were really moving into the sorta dated driven era which became much. Moore says removed into this of the active cars and stuff like that. So yeah, I it was a little bit of a learning process for Michael actually stopped trusting data stop trusting engineers to to get that performance for him. One of the things we say shaped with she Machias what is being a quick racing driver relentlessly fast in the races able to exit the racist. Very well, the driver in those early days was was that there was that something that came on and see is built of experience. I think. When when you talk about what makes a great racing driver. The ability to go round corners fast to find the right breaking point to Tandel throttle things like that you you don't actually consider because they're given. If someone's got foam into one then won the soums, they're pretty good the mechanics of driving. If you like, and I think what what then becomes important to make the greats is Oli added value that the driver puts on. So it's finding those. It'll incremental bits of performances is putting everything around him to to get the the civic co system around him, the provides results provides performance provides success, and Michael was in my mind. He was the first who really built that ecosystem around him prior to that lots of. Terribly talented drivers many before my time, I know very little about the evening my day. Remember what with that?.

We had plenty of capacity in the tank the Moreland if we had known we didn't say we could affect solo circumstances. Like, we could've fixed clutch problem. Like, we could have all of those things are where they're all fexibility. And then you will on same way we wanna risk but cannot one onto. But not the foam, the one I will say f on backwards f will always be around there. Tough to take at times. I mean, that's the first time, I think of Panetta tear, my one hundred retired. Because at that saying that we were on the risks other booth at turn right at time. So yeah, but he looked back on the stronger late the experience of welcome Okajima, however, briefly, I guess what gone on to achieve must be kind of high point the creation of the chance to get a little bit of of you have him. And at the time. Would you have would surprise you someone inside? Yeah. This is a guy who's going to win money. Well championships was a. Please that he was impressive, but was impressive at that level that you'd have the point Bennett's almost pricing away said yet Dunblane that life. Somebody's gonna win them. We'll talk I mean, it's a tough one to be honest to say because of have been voting for one for long time of Saint lots lots lots of different drivers. But in my own car. Responding to situation with drivers input. That was my first year was underhand Bertram cashew on very competent drivers Bertram would be. A little bit blunt Kim love experience that really of a lot because he brought to the team the experience that wavered in of hot just to what circus, bro. What characteristics circuits were going to Carson out in the to change row certain other type track and Bertram didn't bring as much of that? But he brought you know about use abedin's Yasim too. You know, he was quick Bertram every river. Push come to shove. It was pretty quick a few mistakes here and there, but was Michael who got gotten the car, you could you could just feel this the different level. He wasn't there to be just a number. He was there to be potentially to win. And you could see it was going out and for some point in time. What would you say to one several Trump ships? Not the Michael Schumacher we hot. But the Michael Schumacher that pushed himself to that level. Yes. You know, he kept pushing himself to move on forward about him. And be better. All the time. It wasn't doesn't come easy. Then come just because he was Michael Schumacher but needed to work known as well did that through the years unhappily three years. I was able to you know, we kept in touch because I was going risks. And I was gonna ricin we doubled Charleston. The Michael Schumacher the public. So of this guy rushing through the potty Spain D-I-N-O-V-I-T-E enough that was because everybody wants want apartments time needed his own privacy. He knew it was right private guy. But when you go. You know loan. You can have fun Walsum ab- ever drink in. We've had a few of those and. You know it. It was his belief news on talent go up there. And I suppose you could see that from the very beginning that he did believe on Palestinian talent. That would GAM there's workout get -tunities you need Trinity's. But yeah. Pleasurable time. Well, some great insight from from Gary amazing to think that it's not land is to thing. He could have even go to the lead in that race. So if if it finished at least been on the podium and could have been made a sensational story. Even even more remarkable. Now, Glenn what happened after was favorites or Benetton moved very very quickly the next race, which was would have been Monza marketing, Mike Benetton, replacing Repetto marina in February. No later found himself in Jordan briefly. Controversial it was that was also of legal arguments about whether Jordan had a contract with she mce. All not quite messy, wasn't it. Yeah. It's it's fun politics. Probably at their best or worst, depending on your perspective of it. And we have to remember that Eddie Jordan who Papp's became a shrewd operator in form. Paddock here. He's in his first season in one and thing he has admitted since the this certainly while. Where he now accepts that..

"She macaroni years followed straightaway because qualified those four races dependence on the end of ninety one off to Jordan, I qualified him every time. Yes, I think PK realize right? My time's up I'm out here. And then really that kind of cleared the power fishy. Mecca just get on with making Benetton his own team. Which is what we saw over the years. Followed. Exactly. And this is interesting the way L happened as well. We can hey from Gary Anderson the minute technical director, Jordan who was running the Jordan same trackside when she met commended opiates spa in in nineteen Ninety-one and she came in with a tremendous amount of success in former three Macau growing pray race meetings. Roy Wilson called shit with with Salva Macedo. He's even say the instant impact he was able to make that weekend was what lay the foundations for all to follow? It's what we see from great. They given one chance, and there's just bang on your descending magical that weekends. Never been forgotten any losted about fifteen seconds and their ice, but watch one. Yeah, it's ridiculous. The great thing is that he delivered the day before in qualified or on the TV days before of seed we had two day qualifying bout, then the cost seven phone the grid. So he'd already bought himself the credit in the if the call was gonna let him down as Dayton is on is about to explain for us the reasons behind that he'd already made them all. Can one actually didn't need to get much further than lassos a new Belgian Grand Prix to to make an impact how do you qualified fifteenth day? Then maybe the the wranglings that followed and the bids from Benetton, which I will get into to get him out of Jordan immediately might Nov happened. But as you say, that's what great drivers do what someone like Lewis. Hamilton makes a sensational run outside pass on financial Alonzo the star of his very first grand prix when Alonzo is the man in Formula one the reigning world champion at the time. The real superstars can make an impact for New York. And that's exactly what we saw for micro. In all-too-brief, Eddie Jordan might say for a in the beautiful Jordan one nine one. Let's hear from Gary Anderson, then technical director, Jordan, of course, the background of this. Is Burton gusher was unavailable. He'd been sentenced after a altercation with a taxi driver and found that occurred the previous December and the only came up in the middle of the following year. So jordan. Missing driver, and Gary Emerson picks up the story. Well, it was very strange because we were testing in Moldova and Bertram gosh who had had his little episode with the taxi driver in London and Bertram ass- and court the day before the test. So the first day testing ammonia under the Cheshire's driving for us and Bertram supposed to come the next day. Unfortunately, he left an van to somewhere else. Locked out. So we didn't have a driver come up the Belgian Grand Prix, an etiquette me and momzette and his st- a story. But Bertram what happened on the sociable what you can do to go. Couple of drivers of thing on them. Stephan Johansson or demon hill, and I said if you had thought this guy code Michael Schumacher incident, I don't know him from Adam already didn't by just happen to be watching the risk for MCI before to the test the year before thing, it was Mikhail this are they acronym. Yeah. Helter allegation after occasion. Then I said the guy that pretty good. All right. I'll get on hopper blow of few phone calls you homes.

Well, I think in terms of the actual recovery, the actual immediate work they was Italians are quite expert in that there's this is a country that's had a lot of earthquakes in the recovery, rescue effort has very similar to a post earthquake seen in those terms. I think given the the difficulty that the huge amount of rubble immaterial to to be moved at, it seems that they've been doing a pretty good job that that's that's at the local level.

Very lucky in my life I've had two. Beautiful children I was raised Catholic I have a Muslim wife and I. Have two children that are. In a Jewish preschool Wow you're like the colors of Benetton but with religion Right And you know where I stand on religion is that I don't really believe in any of it, personally, I I'm an atheist But I gotta tell you that a lot of good things have happened in my life I've been a, lot, about some downs And, I help people I'm a dentist I, help the underprivileged I a big brother I do a lot of good things and I. I try to do that every day And some some of that gets returned. To me some. Not but I really. Don't care whether it. Does or doesn't and as a result a lot, of good things have happened to me But I am an atheist and You. Know I'm just curious to to I just wonder what we're. Jesus or, God stands on that I mean if you know what has to happen, to me after I pass away somebody who basically is a good person who tries to do good things in general and tries to be. Make other people better around them What's. Your position, on that well Vince the the questions interesting and slightly odd because you, don't believe so why would you be concerned about an afterlife you don't believe in a God I'm assuming you don't believe in an afterlife No I don't believe in an afterlife either okay I believe that we. We we assume beings have, limitations of our five senses and we can't possibly know what's go beyond the atmosphere and beyond this. The. The stars that shouldn't recognize there probably are things? Larger or infinitely larger or? Smaller, than us but we as human beings don't have enough courage to to. Say that what we don't know to admit? What we don't know so so. Are you fearful that you might be wrong Not in not in the least okay Then, the answer any answer give his. Moot It means nothing. My answer means nothing your question means nothing if you don't believe, there's a cliff and you're, driving towards it The honest reaction and response is that you'll die regard regardless of your belief but it made me. Nothing to me but it may mean a lot to someone who doesn't matter doesn't. For the question. Is to see what we're. Jesus stands on. A person like me. And there has to. Be an answer there I don't know and you don't know me It's that simple it's like asking we'll, how does a stranger feel about you now there's a creation connection and that's it you choose not to know you choose to to be an artist without God and if you believe that then. You live that. Way and living that way If the creator created me then he must have a connection with.
