This almost transcendental philosophy appears to have kept DC's feet firmly in the real world. Would he, like Michael, ever consider making a momentous return to Formula One? "Absolutely nothing at all would get me back," he replies, with a swiftness of response hinting at his settled demeanour. "Nothing. Nothing at all. I had my journey. At 41, I'm not better than I was when I was younger. There's no point doing it if you're not going to be better."
"I'm glad to say I finished second to the most successful driver in the sport's history," he says, coolly. "Whether that makes him better than Fangio or Senna is irrelevant because you'll never get the comparison. But I'd rather finish second in that era, as opposed to, say, Keke Rosberg who won a world championship by winning just one race. I'm not diminishing the drivers around Keke, it's just... it's not the same really, is it? On my day, I could beat those guys, but they had consistency I never had which made them better."
