Eddie is fast. But I think that he will just do another Johnny Herbert job
by complianing that schumacher is getting all the attention at Ferrari.
When the V10 is good and at its best he still will be making excuses.

  I disagree. You must have seen how this guy acts. He doesn't give a
rat's - about anything. I think he'll be the equal of Schuey. Michael
will shit himself because he's not winning, then he'll start making all
these mistakes, and the dimise of his career will begin.
  I reckon Eddie'll pull maybe two wins in '96.

     I don't believe that Eddie will be affected the same way as Johnny
Herbert was last season with having Schumacher as team mate. I think
mainly because Eddie is more confident and doesn't let other people
influence him, if anything Schumacher will bring out the best in Irvine
and I really hope that Irvine proves that he can match Schumachers
pace. I'm sure that next season will be very exciting indeed.
    One big factor will be the reliability of the Ferrari, switching to
a V10 will not help matters, not in the 1996 season anyway.

I believe that Eddie is going to do a bit better than many people
expect. I expect that he will qualify well, probably within one or two
grid places of Schumacher. The gap will be coming down all year too.
Michael Schumacher is usually more interested in getting the car set
up for the race, than setting it up just to get a fast qualifying lap,
knowing that he doesn't have to be on the front row of the grid to
win.

I don't believe that he will perform as well in races. That all
depends on the machinery. If the car is reliable then he will do ok.
If anyone is going to blow Ferrari engines next year then Eddie is
more likely to than Michael. In that respect he is going to be more of
an Alesi than a Berger.

One thing that I am looking forward to seeing though is Eddie's starts
from high grid positions. He has always had a good start but has never
been far enough up the grid to take advantage of it ( except on a wide
track like Monza where he went from something like 11th to 5th on the
first start)

He has said already that his driving style is not too different from
that of Michael Schumacher so the design of the car is bound to suit
him too. I also believe that he is a lot more willing to change his
style if necessary than Herbert was.

The one thing that he will suffer from is Schumacher having priority
with pit stops and lets hope there are no more Ferrari pit stop***
ups like Berger suffered last year.

Regards,

John.

I think that the Schumacher/Irvine confrontation is the most
intriguing thing about next season. Eddie seems to be very strong
mentally and, make no mistake, he will need to be to cope with
Michaels mind games. If Eddie can qualify and race reasonably close to
Michael from the word go it will be interesting to watch Michaels
reaction.

Will Ferrari manage to*** things up again as they have done so many
times, or will Michael Schumacher knock them into shape like Niki
Lauda did?

It seems that Ferrari is already totally impressed by Schumi and will do
everything what he asks. On the other side Eddie is a brained guy and has
already understood what's his place. Last time he told to an Italian newspapers
that he's still not able to do what Michael does on fast bends. That's really
intelligent. In this way whatever he will do it will never be a delusion.
And last month in the Bologna Motor Show he's been so funny with the crowd I
suppose a lot of Italian fans like me loves him.
