The end of an era

Michael will retire on Sunday. What’s your best and worst memory of him?

I’ll add my comment but I’d like to first up add Patrick Head’s comment which I thought was particularly pertinent.

I was very impressed I have to say when I was in England I watched the race in Japan at six o’clock in the morning and when the race finished, whenever it was, at a quarter to eight, I was so impressed to see him go round all of the Ferrari team in the garage and walk across to the pit wall and I think to myself we have had many drivers who have been world champions, but I cant think of one of them who would have done that.

And I think that aspect of Michael is the aspect that makes him a team builder or a team creator. As Ross says, when he comes to the factory, he doesn’t decide how the car should be designed, but he is quite clearly an inspiration to those around him.
