Gerhard Berger laughs. "The natural thing for a person is to forget things he didn't like," he says, "so half of the things I cannot remember!"
On that basis, it's probably fair to say that his memory of the 1993 Formula 1 season - which we're discussing - is, let's say about 25 per cent. And that's being generous.
Berger had joined Ferrari when the Maranello team was at rock bottom, switching over from McLaren to replace Ivan Capelli in a big-money move - so much so that, when the Austrian topped the weigh-in before the 1993 season opener in South Africa, Keke Rosberg quipped that he must have left his wallet in his racesuit.
