“Miami was a really strange race for me. The news was broken in the press on a very unfortunate day, May 1st, 30 years after the terrible events at Imola.” [when Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger died].

“It was a very difficult and unfortunate day to issue this press release.

“The Miami Grand Prix itself was strange because I was there, I was there on the pit wall in a strategy role, but I wasn’t involved in any of the technical decisions or the technical meetings.”

“Actually, I was just moved around for the press. To be honest I never thought it would be big news, I never really thought about it.”
