A talented person without a doubt, he worked for the Leyton House before arriving at Ferrari in which to experience the semiautomatic shift with which Mansell quarreled during the Brazilian grand prix because he no longer carried out the selection of the seven-speed ratios.
I think that today technology follows its path with experiments and tests in which there is no longer the single engineer with whom to have a reference, so there are fewer and fewer the names of people who can remember to have created winning cars.
Today I do not really like F1 because I would compare it to a parade of cars on the catwalk rather than a real car race.

The question I would like to propose to John Edward Barnard is very simple: What would be your ideal car for the current modern F1 in case you had to design it ?
His answer would be just one ... a car opposed to today's rules, just the same answer he gave to Italian television during the first years in Ferrari.
