Monza; what a feeling
Excerpt from «Il Mediterraneo» 10 October 1995
SENSATION WAS to be at wheel of a Formula 1 racing car on the track
where my career as a professional race car driver debuted, the warmth of
the reception by enthusiastic spectators, the presence of dozens of
friends on the fairgrounds, in the paddock, ammong the mechanics, the sponsors
and the fans who flock to the Grand Prix race to encourage me, banners along the
track, the fans along the barriers behind the paddock rooting loudly for me ,
encouraging words from screaming fans during the pre-race parade. How
can you remain calm? I am sure that everyone at MONZA
have experienced in a world of artificial life and pseudo-superman
where there is no room for emotions, I didn’t compete only for myself, but for
those who came to the show to be entertained and experienced strong emotions.
And feeling respected and appreciated, not only for my driving skills, but also
for my values, fills me with joy and satisfaction. In the end , I am this way
the things that really matter, the most genuine that affect me in the most way.
Thank You to all.
