"Much as some of the drivers are in today's paddock. And of course, Michael Schumacher here was just the was like. Times. Yeah. I, I think Lewis has grown since since twenty sixteen especially because. Even if we take the loss Monica race and I pointed this out some of you guys. But after the last monarch with all of its complaining about ties with all of his all you put me on the wrong, set you the winding winding as you say that we expect from Lewis. The end of the race when he was interviewed, and they will ask him. Oh, will you think about pitting? His immediate response was not. I wasn't thinking about pitting. So what was the point of the arguing? What was the point of the whingeing, if not to be a psychological game to max 'cause he conned hit directly hold them and it's teams but would've would've heard that over the straits they would have been telling max or right? He's getting he's getting cookies getting. Straighted push push him. To the extent, where Hamilton knows where maximum push early in the race earlier on a tire set. So that later in Thai said he only knew at push on the tranquil outside Rascasse down the tunnel and into the chicane. And if he got max, they're all matted the rest of the truck, he couldn't overtake and Hamilton, I think, has grown a lot mentally to the point where his winding warning it does on the radio is now psychological is using it, as a psychological Dario against his opponents because they think he's still weak for from the to pre twenty sixteen mindset. Maybe possibly. Point you bring up. I just feel like his team for example, and Chevron Andrew, Chevron didn't would have known. Hamilton was playing so he they were probably going. Does he want to pet should be pattern? But as you say, how wind also from twenty fifteen when that pet under safety car came back in third place. In lost the Monaco grand prix that. So it's. Learn foam, and you make a point is a lot of people saying there was I ca- logical that he was putting game against the rest of I'm swinging more towards that side leaving done as well because. Even if it was strongly ties, there's no chance he was going to pay and come back and fest ball track you can never overtake on. So it was all for him to presser variant, even if there were phone, better know us up. It's definitely an interesting one and say discussion, a wider discussion based on the brand new book by Wilbur than called my greatest defeat is available right now. It is the number one bestseller in motorsports. On Amazon UK at the moment. I think it's like in the top ten on Amazon dot com all over the world. So in, in, in the most book, that's great.

"Morosini clipper is I think it's fascinating that Germany fell in love with Michael in a way, really that they haven't fallen in love with any other German drive a sense. Why do you think what was it that? He had this other guys haven't. I think there's two two aspects of one is that I don't know if that's the case also for other countries. But I think in Germany, that's really the case. I think the first one would whoever achieve something really outstanding is always left in a way more has a bigger impact. And the other ones are just kind of the next ones. And and Michael clearly has been the first one, and maybe Stephan Beloff, or who was really a great driver too. But unfortunately, you know, he couldn't show that maybe he would have been the first one would have all been very different. But Michael clearly was the first one, and it was really as I said in my first year, it was kind of wild. There was this astonishment around water is German driver being able to world champion what we have to. We have to watch now. And the second thing is also that Michael really came from a very average environment. And I think a lot of people could just really relate to him. You know that there he was not the son of of maybe of also of. A rich family or something really had worked his way up very intensely. And he had a lot of work to to be able to arrive where he arrived energy for he achieved. And also this. I think that the people like that. So he was one of them the people. Yes. Exactly. Yeah. This might sound strange question. But was he lonely, and the reason I'm asking that is phenomenal. Lonzo obviously retired at the end of twenty eighteen and one of the reasons he cited for retiring is that he didn't have many friends because his his whole life really since he was eighteen had been so focused on Formula one. And then the moment you become successful in on your put on a pedestal makes you quite inaccessible to other people because you're famous, and as a result, he said, I don't have many friends, and I it is actually really lonely being up there. Do you think Michael would relate to that situation? Or did he have a great now, clearly not in my view. I as I said, I mean, he really had that family. I mean, Carina indicates an and defend together since really young. So I think from family wise, he was not at all. I'm here really was and still is very. Close with his family. So that is one thing. And the saying the second thing is that Michael managed. I really think that's a very nice thing to say he managed to have friends from his childhood until now. So there is people like Peter Kaiser, for example, who now follows mic his son everywhere. His one of my closest friends Morris from karting days in captain for everything started. And he has some other people on still has who always. That's the nice thing as well. Because they have always been around. And they're also told him. Hey, hey, come down. You know, you may be starbuck. You're you're still from capitol shut up and have a drink and whatever. So and that was nice he joined that a lot. And he knew how how precious that was. And he kept that. So he he has a bunch of clothes and very good friends are already those friends racing. Roy was the sort of journalists of these are leases of. Obviously, a friend of his. But I mean, these friends I'm speaking now as really they're coming from captain from the car track in Germany, where he grew up, and he that were really like one being his former mechanic, and, you know, so really childhood friends, you know, and that's something which is not a lot of people can say, and that was always that was always very important to Mike. And that's why I would never say he was or is lonely. So like, I say, let's just talk about Michael's legacy. What what do you think that is in term in Formula, one context what I think he's been? He's been the picture of the of the sport. I mean, his his define the way that people would nowadays CEO from Lewan drive needs to be. I mean, he's he's defined the it's a driving the driving itself on the track..

"Good driver was he as obsessed with in the Mercedes years as he was a Ferrari, I think the biggest difference between these two years if you if you make compare them is that in the three years that he had been away from the track after his first retirement he had under because he did a lot of things he really wanted to do. And he had understood in the three years that he's able to let lose and but still get the focus on whereas before he never allowed himself to let loose because he was afraid that he would not be half the focus on the same way like before. And and he always had as I said he always had that need to deliver. And in this room. Years. He understood he can still deliver. Even if let go so he he enjoyed these three Mercedes years on another on a more personal level. You know, he he he very very very quickly. Understood that it would not come out the way he would have wanted and really tried to soak other things in, you know, so he he was very open ended discussions, and he liked that way. And he then just enjoyed his time, you know, driving and discussing with the team trying to work with the engineers with mechanics things he always loved, but before he could not have done them. So so it was a different pressure. Obviously the pressure was totally different. Now, all these. I think a lot of racing drivers are mad and awkward little Michael story. I never I went and did a skydive in Dubai. Atanda skydive. Actually, I was jumping with Tim O clock. And we were just going towards the plane, and Michael is there didn't deny it was going to be that. He was. He came up in the same plane load as us brilliant at during the skydive thing he was on his own jumped out, and then we all got back down to the bottom. Hit dropped his parachute. Went straight back up. Again. I mean, he was an obsessive character is that is that fair because he just he was going down days. It was really happened. I remember that a lot. And I think he t MOS the the fact that team was skydiving was because of Michael was and we all had to skydive. I mean, even skydiving into by because I mean, he was kind of influencing and and because he was so much enjoying it. And that the nice thing about Michael is always been that he loved to see other people having fun. So he left to have fun, but he also loved to share that with other people, and he really that was something I really always liked on him so much even then in this very tense times that I mean, he's still new you never forgot about the other people having fun too. So and it's true, maybe to a certain way. You can say that. That's obsessive clearly were skydiving. If if you like something, really? Yeah. That was I mean, he was really like he could never stop. There was listen with cartoon, you know, he was like had the feeling or like when he was testing with Ferrari, I remember Friday evenings when mechanics were would come up to me and say how long he stood ROY man. I was a now it looks like another day. You know, when maybe the test was originally scheduled until Friday only and at the first years, you could still go on some and Michael was always going on. Because he could you know, when he had the feeling that you can still do more. He always did it. Now rope Smedley told me on this poker stately few weeks ago that Michael was a brilliant team person win or lose. He would go around and shake the hand of every mechanic, not just on his car, but every mechanic, every engineer he even on Rubens is car Eddie Irvine's co whoever's. What are your experiences of the Sula human side of of Michael? Absolutely. I agree with rob. I mean, he, and I know that he did. But he also really he'll hit each genuinely enjoyed the time with the team and also with the mechanics because he I think if Michael would not have been a Formula one driver, he would have probably been a mechanical, whatever he he would have had a job in some kind of driving slash racing slash mechanic environment..

"Yes here and he had horses when he Karenna obviously has a lot of horses, and then already ten had horses and loves them and loves raining toward that she does. But Michael was not so much into that. But because Coronel was so much into it. And he was always been so close to current. I kind of share that because he was always saying I remember when he was the first time when he was Ferrari when he when he retired. He said, you know, Karinna has. Dedicated so much time to my passion. I want to give back to her. Now dedicate my time to her passion. And that's what he did. So you mentioned his retirement from Ferrari the end of two thousand six I remember that Brazilian Grand Prix last race of that year. He went from hanging. Go to punch on the opening lap. Didn't any went from nineteenth fourth one of his best races. How how difficult was it for him to step away from Ferrari the team that he'd had so much success with when it was clearly difficult because it was really his passion. And and yeah, as you say he had so much success, but even more it was such close group of friends in a way that that that team was built into such a close relationship. Everybody had been so close, you know, so it was really very difficult. But then at that time because at that time, especially not maybe not in not anymore into those and six but years before there was always racing testing racing testing. And michael. He did a lot of testing because he wanted to make sure and some point also the tires were little bit. Maybe not the best or not the better ones. So he did a lot of testing and that obviously was very draining and into doesn't six he already felt that a lot. I mean, the the two thousand six season, even if it would have been nearly another world championship season was very difficult for his for his physical condition. He had a really sometimes neck problems. And we didn't want anybody to understand that obviously because it would have obviously influenced the championship. But it was clearly like this at that point. It was time for him to go seven eight nine two thousand seven hundred nine he he was away from Formula one. I think he did a bit with Ferrari knee sort of often on an ambassadorial role. But did you see a very different Michael in those threes. Are clearly I mean, he was really of. And I really remember kind of in going into this two thousand seven year. He really looked at me and say, you know, don't even call me for the next half year. You know, I am not available for anything and an equity even understand it. You know, really mean? Yeah, he he clearly meant that. He was he wanted to enjoy the time with his family, and he really wanted to enjoy the things he always wanted to do and still did. But even wanted to do them more often. And but but really clearly he wanted to spend time with his family and with his friends, and he didn't he didn't really have any desire to come back. Actually, he was really happy with his retirement. So it was more down to Russ than kind of to kind of putting the fire economic even to the tested in order to replace Philippe. When he had this problem with nine without the neck problem. Now, definitely had that the the crash in Hungary. But thing which came to a Samad. I don't know the word in the spring was. Yeah. Couldn't drive. So then might was asked to drive and that was kind of at that point. He felt you know, he was kind of. And then he did it. He he couldn't do it and because of his neck, but he did the test. And he he saw that it. I mean, even of course, he had his neck problems. So he could not have driven it then. But he felt that he could still drive. So what reignited the fire, I think? Yes. So when he said, you Sabine I'm gonna go back full-time with Mercedes..

"When he finished the race and he of struggled to the car. But I saw that with that. So even those races where he did nineteen qualifying laps or whatever he's still banned styles a car and. All the time Ivy on the radio to realize you and I have in this conversation. There was no impression of breathlessness off teak. He would be on top of it. I think that was one of the things that was his strength. He had he wasn't fatigued. He wasn't stressed. So you could be thinking about things there are so many examples he was. He was winning a race somewhere. And he came on radio and said, I've just on the foster slap. You haven't shown me on the board pit board on radio much more. So in those days, we said, no you haven't. So yes, I have just seen it on the on the grant on the TV by calling us. Sagala about and then we realize his brother, and it had she McAfee sued lap. And it caught it as he is driving past. She McAfee slap. And he. Henrik and quite seen. It was all MAC and she mecca and we said. Your brother, but in the I was leading a grand prix just having this sort of. So he just had this spec. Capacity that not many other drivers had and most of the drivers, you know, you would they be breakfast. They'd be having to give everything they had to do the job. He just seemed to have. Extra spec. Capacity beyond what he was doing in the car was he the most complete driver that you have a word for me. Yes. Yeah. I mean, I didn't what were that. Didn't what were the lame process some of those other guys? But for me, he. He he was he was. Yeah. I think we, you know. Drivers are different. I mean, I'll be fascinated by Lewis and the approach he's taken the renews. Doing a tremendous job mazing job for almost a different approach to Michael Michael wood would put in oil the commitment, and then go away quietly with the family, and and sort of chill out in Louis likes to I wouldn't say party because that's not right description, but he likes to do different things that keep him in the pre high profile and and in the limelight. Michael was to he wants to get away from all of that. So different strikes different, folks. And but I have to say didn't what we Lewis that long. But for me, the most complete driver was was Michael. And I think it's because he was setting new standards in his period, as I say, someone I Louis then level of preparation, I level of commitment, etc. They saw the Microsoft. Makah they era they saw what was needed they found. This new reference point that didn't exist before Ross. I think that's a lovely place to end. Thank you very much. Great to talk about Mike. Yeah. Very full members. Thank you. So many great insights into the champ that Michael's unbelievable work ethic is something that shines through as well as his commitment to winning young drivers take note, it goes without saying that he raised the bar in terms of what's expected of a racing driver. And that's quite some negative. Thank you for being. So that was a fascinating chat. And we're not done with commemorating. Michael Schumacher's fiftieth birthday just yet because we have another shoe macaroni exclusive next week with another very special guest. Trust me, you're not gonna want to miss it.

"So they're always fight a glamorous fancy dress parties and. He was being pretty flamboyant. Outfit. So and they were they were lively pot is say, did you see was the same guy? What was he a different guy away from the race track away from the pressure of he was on? He was very well balanced guy away from the racetrack. Ame- never loaded the. I'm Michael Schumacher. Do you know who I am not I never ever saw him? They liked to have a bit of protection who's oversee he loved America. Because really no one knew him there, and he'd like to spend time in America because that gave him the friv- ac- and freedom that he a hankered over because you saw him in the in Europe or in any of the places where he's recognized and he couldn't move. So, you know, there was that that was an element of his. But you know, you meet him at the house and Carino v that adults would be that the kids would be there and land around the pool for half a day, or you know, it was over I relaxed. He never he never lauded it. We have good nice standards in regards to the family and regards to the way ladies life. So she just before we talk about legacy. There's one other thing was he superstitious? Do you remember when he came to Mercedes? And there was the whole thing about changing his race number. He did have it wasn't. He was four in roseburg was three what he wanted numbers of. He was always superstitious about outnumbers chassis numbers had to be outnumbers, and we used to change the chassis place around because it was never the most convenient thing to give him specific chassis. So he the chassis place were were movable for that reason. He knew you doing that. Did he probably didn't matter to him as long as the chassis was cold number three or call number seven. Or whatever it was. So he he had to think about numbers that was that was a thing. I really recall that that was a bit of a thing for. But so then legacy of Michael shoemaker? He's fifty years young. How how would you describe his legs? I think he's he's just completely new standards for more new standards in terms of fitness preparation. The level of commitment that that drive is needed to give you just take a small example is fitness. Hey, just raise the bar. So so much in that respect, and it's an interesting and. Difficult to compare the cows physically now with the physical effort driver kaanai compared to what they used to be. But he would finish it race. And he wouldn't be sweating, and he would be leaving around the rostrum, and you look at the other drivers in the restroom, and they'd be fatigued by the lift the trophy, and they kind of looked at sky. This is this is supernatural. And he raised that standard. And it's now normal recall, the young guys took any driving from one that levels of fitness impressive. And he was to my mind. Probably the first one we would retain those levels of fitness Mosa Mosa than Senate. Yeah. Yeah. I think I haven't was a huge was very special drive. But yeah, I saw him fatigue that I never saw Michael tied count remember occasion..

"What we'd seen was not what he perceived in the cop happened. I think Monaco was shoop would move. I don't really understand Monica zip. Many money frustration with Monaco is when you probably wouldn't be on Paul. But we had such a fast car, we had we had a great strategy with sort of. What of what we're gonna do that? We would have on the race. Where I kick myself is I should have made that even clearer to him that there was not the fresh on pulp assertion that there might have been and so. I'm not. He he did something he shouldn't have done. And there is no doubt about it. And I think he ever had an excuse for it. So, but you know, in a career spanning how many years twenty twenty odd years three hundred and six races thrown six races. You've mentioned three incidents. He's pretty tough wrestler time, they got me wrong. But it's three instances. That's a one percent aberration rate. When you're in the spotlight every race. So. Thank you. How tough was it for him? Do you think after Monaco in particular because his peers the other drivers came down pretty hard on him? Didn't they remember Alonzo was very outspoken Weber too? I think Mark Webber I think he had had various people that he respected in various people. He didn't didn't pay much attention to that was all defense mechanism of being of frontline form on drivers. So there were definitely people. I mean, we don't make a hack, and they was had a of time for you huge respect for him. I think when you're out on the circuit. We don't really appreciate it. But when you're out in the circuit, and you're seeing what people do and you seeing the little moves they make in the little twitches, they make and the way they drive and the Bilas e. You know? It's a nice here. Any drive we're come in and say know, so so tossup because of watched them out in the second. He hasn't taken that corner twice to say in two laps in the there have they'd have opinions of each other. And they'd have opinions of of of who would be a good driver. You know, here they respected knew that might. So I think a lot depended on on the wasn't saying what I think when make add things to say about Mike Lee will set them to Michael privately. And I think that had quite an impact on Michael when when it happened, and that was, you know, make it was both very honorable in a sense. But also, very smart and the way he did things because if he had had some say the Mike go and tell him privately and that had my Michael respected him and it had much bigger impact. And so on during away in the press about it. It. So it must have had some impact on him. But I didn't think I never got the impression that it was. Hey, just saw that as part of the battle. You don't think he was an inherently dirty drive? It depends. What you mean? The reason I'm thinking of that is maker Spar two thousand he eventually got passed using Zonta Ricardo's onto us army. But the lat before Michael and Adam on the grass, I think going up to lake home, but my prisoners. You know, you really competitive a rally complained about anyone else either. I mean, you just mentioned the Ville no thing, but that was the say more of an aberration. But he really. You really winge moaned about someone else being tough on him. If someone else had eight didn't get him on the radio that often saying our sound says done this or removed on the breaking redid that. It should be doing. It was kind of. Live. I saw die by the sword. Type of thing that everyone will know if they want to get past me they're going to have to do special job.

We get the car running get it settled work it out there'd be some development program. Agreed. And then ROY would start thinking about the next time. When you get in that motion you get in that rhythm, then it's very strong and. Great team mechanics led by Nigel set names in a fantastic job. Stephanie running team every every element of the team was working, well, and very United and very very emergent. Modulus team is the word very together very together group. Did you sense that Michael's hunger? Dimmed any point in went by the time. He'd knocked up seven world championships and ninety one victories. Was there? Did you feel him ease offered tool or was the hunger? There like it was his first race win. I mean, I never I never. And I suppose I was I'm as guilty as he was in the way that I left Ferrari after ten years, and I decided after ten years is a great time every year have been fabulous and never never regretted a single year. But almost wanted it to stay that way. And I decided to ten years Nash round number. Now, our logical is that to an engineer. They stop work at friar after ten years because it's a nice round number. Doesn't make a lot of sense. But it just felt like ours. Having a great time. And I was nervous of it at step down at some stage. We'd had couple of tough years, but we'd come out of it. We'd got on top of it. And in fact, that team won the championship in two thousand seven so with the car that was designed while I was still there and program that was. Any just, but they did and two thousand six we will once again, so I was pretty pleased with where the team was. And Michael just said to me that he was tired. He he he was hankering after being able to do other things that you couldn't do the level of commitment and devotion that he needed to give them on. He was never a guy was going to do half-hearted job. So he. He he knew the levels of commitment that he would want to give it give to the project. They just decided he didn't want to make that commitment anymore. He was tied on they wanted to have some time to himself. And that was that was as much of an explanation as he gave me for stuffing. So what changed fast food to twenty ten when you he came back with you at Mercedes. Well, I think he'd he'd wristed. Scratched a few eight hundred. Yeah, you've had those years of so doing the various things he hold enough to bike. I wish he'd done the things that he wanted to do. And I I understand that because I've kind of done the same. I've had three years of retirement before coming back to this role and. In a way. You miss the image. The. Structure on the rhythm of the of the job the life the challenges. Yeah. I had a pretty busy three is a retirement their various things factoring. Reckon she so less of me when I was retired than when I was working, but but a different pace and that that's the thing. I discovered that retirement everything I did at my own pace, this business, drives you different speed. And so it can be addictive it can be very appealing. And I think he found the same. They'd eat had, you know, he's three years or whatever four years of just running his own life at whatever pace he wanted to and. He missed perhaps the discipline and the the pace of for Moore who made the first move for twenty ten. Well, what what happened? If you remember because of. Philippe as accident Mico tried to get back in the car, and that kind of alerted me to that. He was starting to get withdrawal symptoms. It had his bike accident. And yeah, he had his neck quite badly much more than people. Probably appreciate it is he kept a call at quiet and. And they couldn't drive eventually had to admit he couldn't drive the car when they tried to get him in the Ferrari. Isn't neck was just giving him too much grief?.

There were periods where you didn't make the strongest moves you were just putting yourself in the right place to make strong moves when when opportunity came so, and he understood all of that. So he which still done sometimes still get shocks. Yeah. You would still he would be the one asking me what the hell it happened. But it was a very thrilling par the racing in those those periods. I mean now, the strategy is almost autonomous, you know. It's. Because we haven't got the refueling and you haven't got the fuel weights taking the consideration. Then there's an undercut on some not, but you know, going being faster at the end of a stint with no fuel in all ties was quite feasible compared to being out there on high fuel with new tires, you know, that was the crucial thing. Whereas now, unless depending on the state of the ties it's pretty rare that you you'll be faster at the end of his stint. Depending on tide very Rabi faster at the end of his stint, and you will be at the beginning of the next one because you've got the same few way. So because the different scenario now talk to me about the what I call the juggernaut years when you guys were unstoppable. So two thousand three to two thousand and four. Did you guys ever this might seem an odd question? But did you ever feel guilty about the extent of your dominance? No. And I think because we paid the price for those particular three years. I mean, we don't have been in business quite long time and those three years of agony the last race. We didn't have any any issues about the and I think two thousand four was pretty dominant. But. They will generally if you look at the it wasn't like now where the top three teams laughing everyone else in so disappearing. We didn't do that. We will seem to have someone nibbling hails keeping his his honest as we needed to be. And we've we had some quite hot for championship some of those years. So it was a good. It was a well oiled machine. Roy was doing a fantastic job design their cars. And because the way we were told message soon as he got one done..

"I think about September time everything was in place. And I told Benneton that I was leaving. The clearly would not we're not didn't see things as I saw them. Of course, it was a bit of a reaction of the panic and that got awkward for a few weeks. But then eventually they they recognize that there was no didn't in standing in my way, and they released me, and I went to fry. So that's how it how it happened. So when you were at Ferrari, I mean, well, let's Michael it already had the disappointment of Ninety-six. He won a few races. But ninety six ninety seven ninety eight nine thousand nine four may steers as far as you guys were concerned. How did you deal with the disappointment of that? And what what was the pressure light because for already hadn't won a championship since seventy nine with Scheckter? They hadn't anything at say is. I think we were second. I loses. A how did you first? Louis. But we how you finishing second. Was it? Even more powers gut wrenching on on reflection that probably funded the team more strongly together than the might've aminals saying we wouldn't have welcomed winning the championships. But I think it it pulled the team closer together. I mean, we, you know, we lost championships that trade last race of those those three is ninety seven ninety eight ninety nine ninety six say, I wasn't that involved. But ninety seven we modified John's car and at a run at it ninety eight we got we got very close ninety nine Michael break is like when he would have won the championship quite easily mean an almost one it and Michael was was on the road dominating on until the accident. So can I ask you a question about Eddie? How'd he won that championship in one thousand nine how would that have gone down within Ferrari, probably mixed if I'm honest because there was failing that Michael was the one who would have deserved it, quite clearly, but we would've taken it. And I think it was. Yeah. Big effort made to trying Eddie over the line on that. And yeah, he bit wobbly at the end the thing when the pressure really came on. He struggled Atlit is you know, we had we had a good car air. We were we were backing everywhere. We could make Asala gave up harassment ready Michael gave up a race wind ready when he came back. So it was every opportunity ready to make it. I think deep down everyone thought Michael was wanted deserved it. But we wouldn't have said, no. Because you never do. We won the constructors that. Yeah. Which was. Yeah. For teams is an important thing, but fell a little bit of a consolation prize. Can you just describe what the sense of relief that you had at the end of two thousand went finally it? Oh came together. Yeah. I think that's why they you know, you can look back. On it. Now with a sort of rose tinted spectacles and say have great two thousand watts because we were so painful, so painful in in the three previous years, you know, it was it was stunning for us to win in two thousand and it was a strong championship. I mean, we had to fight incredibly hard in two thousand to win. It wasn't a cruise. That's for sure. And. Yeah. I think it was Japan was that we sailed it. And remember we were it was all the race strategy involved. We racing with mak- and. We have. The first enjoyable and stressful thing in that period was on the pit while you very involved in the race. You know, you you could make a race very easily you needed the driver to to deliver for sure. And that was one of the things Michael was great at. But you could screw the race. If you got it wrong. And so. Yeah. You're mapping out. What you saw on? I think we made some good strategic decisions in that race. And I remember the last pit stop where Michael came out in front of me. And the there was we had to get it to the end..

"When he found it. So is that what made him so good in the wet probably? Yeah. Yeah. The just the sheer belief in his own ability. Whatever was going to happen. I mean, it has founders of caution just charging into a corner ridiculous speed. And you're going to catch it up. But he would. He would just have extra degree of faith the his ability was carrying through. And I don't really know how you describe it. But that's that was always my feeling with him that, you know, he's coronary speed is always higher was had a bit more confidence. And in fact, helping men the sand the ways of getting the best time of the car was was important thing. And Michael was have very close relationships his engineers, and he started we Pat Simmons venison. Andrea stellar couple of different guys at at Ferrari. It was had a very intimate relationship is engineers because you spent so much time with them. And those are the guy who would actually have more Finnity in more feel for what the car was doing. And describe it to him discuss it with him, and they were too. There's generally a three person team that'd be Mike. Race engineer what we call the vigorously, and he was victimless. Remember dry stellar used to do that for Michael, and he would do all the data analysis. So the three of them would be quite a strong, Nancy and working out. How to get the best out of the car and what the best way of driving. It was what needs to change, etc. Etc. And that commitment that devotion to that process was one of the strengths at Michael hat. You talk about devotion. So his work ethic. Was that unlike any of the driver you experience? Yes. Yeah. I think of what was some pretty professional drivers. And I think you know, if you take someone that Martin Brundle monsoon was extremely committed and other than you would say that Martin wet any less how to Michael. But there were a lot of other drivers who who definitely didn't didn't get it. It. Mentioned. Johnny Johnny lessons. Cotton socks was. I remember the first I went up into debris for Johnny any was playing Nintendo or something on the little little machine. And it was his way of relaxing. I kind of understood that I was very shocked. The I it got there and seem deep in deep in discussion with his engineer, and I went up to the debrief fasten Johnny was playing Nintendo. And that was his way of on coming down on dealing with it. And that wasn't what I was used to. Because you know, I've got the best and not see Michael in the huddle with this couple of guys working at what had happened. What was doing?

"He might he might get upset about something or other that people saw. But he never went to the media news media to complain about something team was doing or somebody. He was unhappy about he was always very defensive and supportive of his team. Because that's the way he felt could get pretty faced e behind closed doors. But that was how it should have been. Did he have direction from someone like you or did that come naturally to him to keep everything behind closed doors? I think we all together. I mean, one of the reasons I think our friendship grew is that we were both. Yeah. Careers informa- warm west of maturing and accelerating about the same time. I mean, I've been in follow on for ten fifteen years maybe longer by the time. I got to what we Michael. But I yeah. That level of responsibility. I had Benetton was the biggest team I'd beat in on the highest level responsibility. I've been in. So you know, I was learning as I went along. And so is he so, yeah, he's he's fourteen years younger than me. But we were both on this puff of of trying to achieve success in for more on. I think we both hiding from each other. I had a bit more experience. But yeah, not been that close to the responsibilities. I had that. Before. So. Yeah. Level of responsibility. I had him for the size of team. I had it been a new thing for me. And so that that we were both on a learning curve in different ways. And I think both support each other and both trusted each other, which was another key element. Well, I was gonna say what was the glue that kept you to imitate Hilo together for such a long period of time. I think. The thing. After awhile we just learned to read each other. When when when not to talk when to push when to hell back, unlike any any relationship that Volvos and develops matures, you know, the right time to encourage the right time to criticize in the right time to hold back, and that was something which developed with Michael. And so, yeah, I I had a principal. Rinses? Never really. Well, I recall ever telling him how to drive a car. I'd make the information available. He could draw conclusions. But I had no idea. How to drive racing car? I could see from the data analysis of various other things where it was working where it wasn't working. But you know, I had no experience of going into a corner. At the speeds that those guys were doing and and Michael often, you know, you could see comparing into other drivers he would have more of a. A tendency to go into a corner and see what was there and cope with it?.

"So we won't be able to work this out. But I'm getting too old. They would have been what is he would have been twenty three. Yeah. Yeah. So young so it works. So So he was. he was. He was born in sixty eight because we're celebrating his. Yeah. Well, it was twenty five twenty twenty three twenty three. Yeah. Yeah. So what about Nelson peak because that first race for you guys at Benetton, you know, he had a three time world champion alongside and beats him. Immediately. Can you remember how they rubbed along? Together. Didn't really I mean Nelson made a big fuss about dropping of term who the Benneton rivals Rebecca Marino. Yes. Marina got got dropped. And Nelson made a big fuss about that. And was creating big sideshow about marina being ceremoniously dropped Michael drivers of Nelson sort of experience you had marina in the place. He wanted them. And then suddenly you had this young kid who wasn't interested in what Nelson wanted. So. So I think it an Nelson left. I think the writing was on the wall and. Nelson. You say the team was going to be going. So you know, you don't. It's crew world in that in that environment. You don't choose your direct your directions chosen by the people that are in the team in the sense that if Michael was faster, I was young. It was the prospect you show all the respect cancer. Drivers. You have you follow the follow the main lead? You can't help it. So thing Nelson knew that even though he'd had good relationship with the team his his time was over. So, and I think that also had Voss experience, I think probably account removal details, but I imagine that that last season Nelson probably pulled a few feel pull one over Michael a few times from his experience, but the C on ship foments he was going to be in trouble Ross. I is there a case of what goes around comes around because fast forward to twenty twelve Mercedes you had the opportunity to get hold of Lewis. Hamilton, Michael was in the Nelson Piquet role in a way. I suppose you could make that comparison. I think probably I would say that that Michael is kept very much in that loop of what was going on. I think the thing that. Was explained to Michael. And I knew I explained to Michael was that Lewis was coming to the end of his contract. And there was a window that he was going to be available. And if he became available, then Mercedes would would try and go from because he was a future micro was coming to the end of his career. So I'm Michael understood that and respect to that. And as long as it was done openly and in a straightforward manner, heat he dealt with it. So. Yeah. I think probably in that instance, I'd like to think that Michael was kept very much more involved in the loop than probably with Nelson. And I had nothing to do was did not much say in. What was going on? And I think I think from memory Flavio tried to keep Nelson. But it's clear Nelson. Was that was not going to hang around with Michael ten..

"So that's why I met him and clearly incredibly quick, and what impressed me was busy. Do the fuel mileage with lap time and very competitive in those days to see funny Masur altercation with der at work where to help stand between the two before Derek whacked him and Michael. Something happened in qualifying in both cars came into the pits with big marks on the side and Derek tour at the car and chase Michael at the pit lane with myself and some Mercedes mechanics trying to keep up and stop stop Derry hitting. So is it vis t even then in sports cars that he had a Formula one future and a successful one at that. You don't know when you make that transition? But clearly he was he was exceptional in sports costs. So it was obvious. Tom won't show myself. How good he was on. When the when the toll came of him going into form one Tom, and I were ready, then engaged at Benetton, and we were desperate to get him in the car because when you have good he was you were desperate to get him in the car. Are we talking after Belgium when he made his debut with Eddie, Jordan or were you in contact with him about Formula one prior to that prior to that I think as soon as we became aware. I mean, the problem was we had we had to drive is in the car. And it wasn't Jordan had espec-. So and we were trying to persuade Flavio that we we should be drastic in the change. He wasn't convinced because he knew nothing about microchip backer. That of course when Michael appeared in spa and put into performance he did he was convinced. So I think, you know, the the Flavio discovering Michael Schumacher story is a little bit exaggerated. Someone I would desperate to get him in the car and Flavio is convinced once he saw him spa. So then ensued, a sort of fairly testy battle to pull him out of the Jordan and stick him in the venison. Did he suddenly get involved in those negotiations or was he just the porn in the middle that you will fighting? I don't need ever describe my closer Apollon. I certainly wouldn't. He he's even then actually he was he's he's shop. The the he would've nine everything was going on Villanueva was the was the key guy Michael side. But if I'm Acehnese, we're helping fund this former one introduction. So I remember some of the Mercedes guys were were involved in in the discussions. We're quite frankly that was something Tom, Tom Flavio. Did I watched as a entertain from a distance? I was more concerned only considering with engineering the calm now. What was he like as a person by then Ross whizzy was he very confident immediately. Was there sort of humbleness to him at that point? What did you find? When he first came to Bennett's in the Italian growing pre of nineteen Ninety-one. It was pretty well balanced. Some say had enough confidence to make you fairly could do the job, but not not overconfident very very inquisitive, very keen Sula. And I remember even then he devoted himself to it and committed the time and just just came across immediately as very professional driver. Not an awful lot of experience because he is experienced have been quite narrow and what it done. So. Yeah, there was all of learning to do. But he had a great attitude. I think one of the things I'd say about Michael from throughout his career is people who work with him. Never had a bad word to say about him. You know within the teams he worked in the it was crazy is a great impression and great loyalty. And it was immediately obvious back then the following year. We have a delicate situation because Martin Brundle was his partner and Martin was someone who is very close to Tom. And there was a little bit of minor needle in the team. But nothing nothing too serious. So that had to be sort of managed, but and Michael hound himself. Pretty well. So yeah us. I'm trying to remember how old he would have been about stage that would have been ninety one..
