Another interview of Nira Juanco on formula santander website, this time to Massimo Rivola. I'm going to copy the quotes related to Fernando, but check the full interview, it's at least entertaining.
"Back in 2001 I knew that Fernando would soon be World Champion"
"Now he is simply a better driver than he was. The talent continues to be there, but the experience makes the difference. (Rivola worked with Fernando in Minardi)"
Talking about losing the title last year:
"As a team we cannot hide the mistakes we make, but I think that one of Fernando's strongest points came to light precisely on that day. Above all I was very sad for him, but he looked at me and said to me "don't worry, we will win more in the future than we have lost this time". So when you have a driver who provides such support, encouragement and confidence to the whole team, despite the mistake, it is great proof of the driver's power. Because in the end on certain occasions it is he who leads the team. When you build this type of relationship between the driver and the team, results soon come."
About Feranndo and Felipe relationship:
"Yes, I think that it is a strong partnership, I see they really work well together and with the team."http://www.formulasa...s/hello-paddock
Love the bit about Abu Dhabi.
