In an interview today on the Corriere della Sera Gerhard Berger, the last Ferrari Formula 1 pilot personally chosen by Enzo Ferrari shares very powerful memories of his relationship with The Drake.
After every competition we, Ferrari pilots, were used to lunch with Enzo Ferrari, his son Piero and his assistant. We talked about cars first, and women at the paddock then.
“In 1987 I had a great car. In Portugal I was lead the race, then a 180°.
I finished second. After a few days I receive a letter from Enzo Ferrari saying ‘Dear Berger, I admired and suffered you beautiful race. Bravo! We will win next time’. I still keep the letter, framed”.
Unforgettable authentic sense of a family. True leadership.
