Do you find it dif­fi­cult not to talk shop and give away trade se­crets when you’re at home with Susie?


Paul Smith, UK No, be­cause there’s a kind of un­spo­ken deal we have that we won’t talk about tech­ni­cal or sport­ing de­tails at home be­cause it would put the other one in a com­pro­mis­ing sit­u­a­tion. So we don’t do that at all or dis­cuss that. We don’t talk about things which could com­pro­mise the other one. F1R: Who’s the faster driver? TW: Be­tween her and me? [“How big are your balls for this an­swer,” quips Mercedes multi-lin­gual press at­taché, who is present for the in­ter­view] TW: Of course it’s her. She’s a pro­fes­sional driver. F1R: Has that al­ways been the case? TW: Uh, well if you put her in a rally car on loose ground I might have a chance. A small chance.
