According to the multiple World Champion who will this year carry the very unfamiliar number 5 on the nose of his car, the current World Champion can still learn quite a bit from him. He also does not see his age as a problem at all, even though he has hinted that he could retire at the end of the season should his car prove uncompetitive once again.

Said the German at a news conference in Mugello: “There’s one thing that is in your passport and another thing that you feel in your body and your brain.”

“I’ve seen those guys around for quite a while now, I know them pretty well — we play soccer and do things together — and I don’t have a feeling that I am an old man hopelessly lost against these young guys,” he added on the subject of the young star drivers, “In a lot of areas I am still able to show them what’s possible.”
