The polar opposite then, to the return of the most successful Formula One driver in history: Michael Schumacher. Naturally, his reappearance in an F1 car - and his form to date - have garnered controversial views, not least DC's. "I'm perceived as being critical of Michael by those who follow him, but," and he emphasises his point curtly, "I'm entitled to my opinion, and I've got the benefit of having raced with him.
"Naturally, I have a tremendous amount of respect for his achievements - he was a better racing driver than I was, but as great a champion as he is, he's a flawed champion; he's done a few low punches.
"For instance, in the past he's been excluded from the results, he famously parked his car at Rascasse and the stewards put him at the back of the grid, he nearly put Rubens in a wall, and he only apologised when the whole tide of media response was like, ‘mate, you're wrong'."
