TG: Could this be a glimpse into the future?
JB: One day if the situation was right, I could see myself racing in DTM. If it's still around when I retire from F1, I'm only young. The cars look great and it's such a competitive category, as you can see by the guys who come to it from F1. If you do choose to go down this route, you've got to really want it. F1 drivers come to DTM because they still enjoy racing, but it's not a job to them so much, it's more relaxing. And the younger guys are trying to further their careers. I'd like to find out more about the difference in technique. Mika [Hakkinen] won a race, Frentzen did all right in the end, and DC's had some decent races... He's bloody quick, but I'm not sure he's found the right balance in the car yet.
