Post-Race Press Conference - Australian GP

Sunday March 4th, 2001

Q. Michael, if you would perhaps give us a typical story of your race please?

Michael Schumacher: Obviously, I had a great start. We worked very hard all winter about that, and as you can see, it worked out very well. We were quite pleased about this. Then I just tried to split my racing into a kind of rhythm, to be fast just when I have to be fast, and not overdrive the car when it was not necessary. Obviously, then, we had the safety car situation, and unfortunately we have just been told that the marshal did die, and obviously we are all shocked about this and we have to look at what is possible from our side, what support we can give. Certainly everybody is very much down for this situation.

Q. David, a quick word from you.

David Coulthard: Well, obviously the overriding story of the race is, as Michael has just mentioned, the fatality of the marshal, and I think on behalf of all the drivers, our thoughts go to him and his family. And it certainly tells us how we can improve track safety for these people who give their time in order to enable us to go racing. On the other side, I had a fairly straight-forward race to pick up six points, but that now seems pretty insignificant when there is a loss of life involved.

Q. And finally a quick word from Rubens.

Rubens Barrichello: Well, I mean its always nice to score some points to begin with, is quite good. But you know, we are definitely not happy just because what Michael and David just said. It's very bad when a colleague that is there for you, you know, happens to be in an incident like that, so my thoughts are with him and with his family, and there is no way that we can make up for this race.
