“If we talk about pure talent, I must Michael and Fernando is on the same level places,” says Mass. “Alonso also has the gift to a race-to-understand and incredibly hard to drive. A tremendously intelligent rider with loads of talent, so I would Michael describe.”

With Schumacher had Mass a good band, the German was never afraid to put his young team-mate to help but with Alonso had the Brazilian a very different relationship.

“I have to admit that it was not easy for his team-mate. With Michael I had a close relationship. I was young and motivated to learn as much as possible of a seven times world champion and Schumacher treated me well. With Fernando, I had a very different relationship.”

“Outside the car, I had no problems with Fernando, we always have a healthy working relationship. However, that is a thing, from the moment that Fernando his visor close, he becomes a different man. He may discord to sow, that we in different teams.”
