Probably, recently, the Porsche Carrera 4S.
No, it was one of a group of cars. I was involved in so many different ways with Ford. I was in R&D, developing vehicle dynamics, commercials came with the rest of the package.
I was scared of it to begin with, of what we had taken on. Everybody thought I'd lose my reputation because I'd lose my money and we couldn't do it. But we did it. The amount of homework I did, we had a first class CFO, good quality people. But when it came time to sell it, it was with enormous relief. I had intended… Read more
No delays. Never as a racing driver was I not paid on time. And never at Stewart Grand Prix or Paul Stewart Racing were we never paying our bills. If you can't afford it, you don't buy it.
Well, I think Hulkenberg and Paul di Resta.
Sounds like a good idea to me, but I've got two children and a wife of 51 years, and I have 9 grand kids. I can't afford another birthday.
I think the turbos are a shame, mainly because of the economy. It's hugely difficult to finance. What it will do is that the car will use half the fuel that the current cars use. F1 is taking notice of ecology, the governing body are eager to be greener.

He's certainly not the worst driver in the world. Funnily enough, I had wanted Jeremy to come on the show. I saw Jeremy on the track at Laguna Seca and I thought he needed some help, so I called him up and said we should do some driving together. He thought it was a great idea, but not with him. Read more
What we have is built in to our cars and also regulates safety. Our fuel systems, for example, in my day there were consistent terrible fires in F1. Now there are no fires. The drive in my day was sitting on the fuel tank, that doesn't exist today. They're created in such a way that they won't explode in a heavy… Read more
Technology moves along, you have to use it, KERS is delivering additional horsepower that you wouldn't have under the regulations, and it's given us passing. You could say it's falsifying the situation, but I see these things as positive.
I think the animal hasn't changed, the times and the cars have changed. There's only ever one outstanding person, it seems. Comparing eras are very different. All you can say is that they were the best of their time. Read more
1969 Matra M80RA with a Ford engine. That was my favorite.
