"The problem [with racing in the 80s] is the danger", he shoots off quickly, to suggest he's probably thought about this more than once. "Then again if you ask me as it was, I would say I'd race right now, but the cars themselves were better I think, in the 1980s."
His answers are measured and calm, even when - probably exhausted by the numerous times he's been questioned on it - I ask him about his relationship with his dad. "He's always been helping me out, earlier more than now, but it's a very gradual thing. He's very much in the background now, but he's happy to help when I ask him."
