Verstappen: Schumacher used electronic aids

Jos Verstappen remains convinced that Michael Schumacher won his maiden World title with the help of electronic aids. Verstappen does not believe that he and the German were driving the same car, but pleas to Flavio Briatore fell on deaf ears. "People think I'm looking for an excuse," Verstappen told NuSport. "He is not superman - he never was. When we went karting he never beat me."

Ah, Jos the Boss, I'd forgotten about him. I never could figure out whether he was driving the same car as me either.
FastEddie   Eddie Irvine
It can't be a coincidence Mikey, I always thought there must be something wrong when you beat all your teammates so easily, especially Fast Eddie.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I don't believe in coincidences either. However I do believe in my superiority over a man whose idea of an intellectual feat is chatting to two women at the same time.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
I know how Verstappen and Eddie feel, it is so unfair that Michael gets a better car than all his teammates, it happened to me too.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I'm not sure I'll bother explaining natural selction to you again Rubens. I must say I did thoroughly enjoy your piece on the BBC F1 forum in Brazil begging for a drive next year.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
I was hoping the team owners would see how much energy and enthusiasm I still have.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Sounds like one of my pet dogs, full of energy and enthusiasm, especially when it's begging for something. I still wouldn't give it an F1 drive though.
jpm   Juan Pablo Montoya
That Verstappen guys is totally douchebag. He rode on my ass in Brazil '01, he did broke my fucking head man.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
The one truly great moment of Jos's career I would think.
johnny   Johnny Herbert
Enough of this you nappy staining ninnies. If I knew my car wasn't equal I would have deep-fried Flavio and had Schumacher for pudding.
flavio   Flavio Briatore
Flavio know nothing.
innocent   Nelson Piquet Jr.
It does not surprise me to learn that Mr. Briatore was involved in subterfuge within his own team.
flavio   Flavio Briatore
I find you little Piquet, Flavio find you and you stop talking, capiche!
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Let it go Flavio, although if you had botched Verstappen's fuel rig properly in Hockenheim all those years back, we could have avoided this unpleasant outburst.
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
Controversial Jacques is going to stick his neck on the line here and say that if Jos had an equal car, then maybe he would have had a better chance of beating Michael.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Maybe you could stick your neck on the line the next year in Montreal so I can accidentally drive over it.
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
I might be the only one with the balls to say it, but if you did use electronic aids then you might have had an unfair advantage.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Well, if you had employed some electronic aids yourself you might have made a better fist of the musical dog vomit you released on that album.
JV   Jacques Villeneuve
I don't see what driver aids like launch and traction control could have done to help my CD Michael.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
A hearing aid was what I had in mind actually.
