On Michael Schumacher, 7-time Formula 1 World Champion:
Everyone who gets close to him – and they are a precious few – marvel at his dedication to fitness, to his union with his engineers. He is not only quick behind the wheel but he ranks among the very finest when giving the team feedback on performance.
The backroom team – Jean Todt, Ross Brawn and Rory Byrne – roll out the superlatives. They have also seen Schumacher watching television while wearing his helmet and just rocking from side to side, working on his neck muscles.
