Re: He has no heart

The price you pay for being "ice cool" and bottling your emotions up too much.

Stress (extreme, even by f1 standards) and other factors that reading the posts, on the YT site, explain. All coming to a head.

Understandable.

But.

I'm GOBSMACKED at the utter insensitivity (bordering on stupid) of the interviewer trying to carry-on when everyone on the table is massively upset. Commercial break? Poor form.

Yet, revealing and watchable. So, I'm a hypocrite I guess?

my 2 cents.

I think he's annoyed at the reporter, and wants the reporter to stop and give MS a chance to compose himself.

Journalists have no heart or soul, apologies if there are any on the forum. But all that I have met have been utter (insert expletive of choice)

Re: He has no heart

Micheal and senna were very close when starting their career in motorsport I believe, racing F1 cars takes alot of your energy out of you and leaves vulnerable emotionally after a race, to me this looks genuine, but I can't help but think that the reporter is almost laughing at the fact no ones intrested in his questions, shows a lack of understanding and compassion for the sport I think!

Re: He has no heart

Heartless TV reporter/director.

So soon after 9/11, a marshall dies that day and Schumi's mother had died shortly prior to the race. Insensitivity par excellence.

That interview should have stopped after the first question, just out of respect.

And thanks for the back info.

Re: He has no heart

If the video shows the Monza 2000 press conference, then Schumi wasn't crying for his mother since she passed away in 2003. Also, Monza's 2000 GP took place on 9/10/2000, on a Sunday. ( Most of us were at work when 9/11 happened. )

I am not sure the drivers did know the marshall was dead at that point, with Ralf saying "someone was hurt as we saw, but I don't know who it was".

In the 2000 season, Schumacher took 5 victories in the first 8 races, but in the next 5 races, McLaren won 4 times, and Barrichello once. Picture yourself a 2-time World Champion trying to assert yourself to victory with Ferrari over McLaren, 6 times. But 5 times in a row, you can't make it happen. The first 3 times, you don't even finish the race. The following 2 times, right when it matters for the championship, your main contender and 99 World Champion Mika Hakkinen takes 1st, and you 2nd. He's now ranking #1 for the drivers' title. And Ferrari hasn't had a championship title in 21 years, and they want it really, really bad. With all that pressure, you might get quite frustrated and ask yourself questions by then. I would.

And then, at the Italian GP, right in front of your own employer's public, and at a crucial time for the championship, you make it happen. It's got to be liberating. Schumi went on to take the crown 2 GPs after that, at Suzuka.

Re: He has no heart

He is only human, as his several mistakes () this season confirmed

Great driver though
