It was possible to talk to journalists and to Hakkinen though - conference he has not been invited to a press. When it have asked, in what the reason of its failure, the Finn has told, having thought a little: “ Perhaps, it was really my error “.
it is natural that on Sunday evening and all the Monday long admirers “ Scuderias “ and Schumacher roughly celebrated a victory at a stage. In celebrations has taken part 90 thousand (!) Fans. But they behaved very much organizovanno. Almost the same as and on Friday when together with admirers of other commands participated in the ceremony devoted to memory of Brazilian Ayrton Senna and Austrian Rolanda Rattsenbergera which were lost on autodrome in Imola five years ago. Fans of motor racing have gathered at Senna`s established nearby to a place of accident monument, and have assigned to it flowers.
to the friend Senna has devoted the third place and Brazilian Rubens Barrichello from Stewart. “ Imola - a special place for me, - he has told. - I trust, it again will change my life. But on it time to the best. After all that I have worried last five years is and problems in a command, and complexities in my private life - me very much were to be believed that good luck has turned at last to me the person. In 1994 I here have got to a severe accident. It was to tragedy with Ayrton. And I was happy already simply because have survived “.
