Willi Weber, Michael Schumacher’s former long-time manager has slammed Bernie Ecclestone for comments about the legendary German driver.

In an interview with Sport Bild, former F1 supremo Ecclestone said of Schumacher: “His problem was that he had no limits”, referring to the incident with Jacques Villeneuve in Jerez 1997.

The German went into the final race with a one-point lead. On lap 46, Villeneuve was flying and attempted to pass Schumacher on the inside when the German turned into him. However, it was the Ferrari that came off worse.

Weber called Ecclestone’s comments “stupid”.

“The fact is that Villeneuve actually invited him to drive into him. I told Michael ‘If you do it, do it right, just as Prost and Senna did a dozen times’.

“But he did it half-heartedly, because as a German he knew it was sh*t”.

“And yet now he talks like that about Schumi who cannot speak for himself,” Weber said.

Willi Weber: I told Michael ‘If you do it, do it right, just as Prost and Senna did a dozen times’.

Yes, Some of the biggest names in the music industry are passionate fans of Formula 1. From their passion over the world of moto-sport, some great songs were created…

In the following article, we will reveal some of the songs which have been inspired by the F1 racing. We have selected some of the most famous musical works from various genres that are in one way or another connected with Formula 1.


The first story that came to my mind happened at the Australian Grand Prix in 1993, where Ayrton Senna took to the stage during the Tina Turner concert. It’s hard to say which of them had more fans, but Tina admitted that Ayrton was simply the best for her and dedicated her song to Simply The Best.

Senna was inspired by many musicians, including Italian singer Lucia Dallo. He dedicated his poem Ayrton, in which he wondered about the meaning of races, about meaning, and about the day that god told him in a curve that he should close his eyes and rest. Dalla is known for deep, deliberate poems about celebrities. Among his hats is, for example, the poem Nuvolari, in which he conveys the myth of Taziri and his almost superhuman power, attributed to him by the then media. I think that these are two masterpieces written by someone who was really passionate about racing.

The songs about Ayrton are far from over. In 1994, the acid jazz band Corduroy released an album Out of Here, which included a recording, with the simple name Ayrton Senna. In the song we hear the South American rhythm and the vocals of Brothers Addison. Although the song is less known, it is definetly worth listening.
Among the most famous pop songs about Formula 1 is certainly a track by Robbie Williams, Supreme. In the video of his song he is fighting for the title of world champion with Jackie Stewart himself. The song is catchy, the video is a little funny, but as a whole the idea is brilliant and the installation of historical and studio recordings is also excellent.
Jackie Stewart also performs in the video for the song “Faster” by George Harrison. Song, where we also have the opportunity to see a multitude of original racing tracks from the late 1970s. Former member of the Beatles group was a big enthusiast of Formula 1 and a loyal Peterson fan. He paid all the profit from the record to the Gunnar Nilsson Foundation to fight cancer. George had an interview with an Italian journalist, with an artistic name, Red Ronnie. He asked him, from where the idea of this name was. The journalist explained that he was named Red because he was redheaded and Ronnie was after Peterson. Harrison and Red Ronnie became very good friends imediately. There is also a video interview, in which Harrison explains what happened in Formula One in 1978 with such a passion and compared drivers with rock’n’roll celebrities.
At the end of the 1990s, Danish-Dutch duo, known as DJ Visage, released a clip called Formula. The title may not say much to many, but most of F1 fans have already heard this song. In fact, he became better known as Schumacher’s song. In the following years, several remixes of this track were created, as Schumacher’s glory was at its peak at the time.
Finally, another song, which is not directly related to Formula 1, but has true racing vibe. In 2000, Mark Knopfler, former boss of the Dire Straits group, released the song Speedway at Nazareth, which talks about life on American races. The inspiration for creating this ballade is supposedly given by his personal friend, Stefan Johansson. Knopfler and Johansson met in 1986 at the Austrian GP when he drove for Ferrari and stayed in touch even when Johansson continued his career in the US.

Ferrari Formula 1 team principal Maurizio Arrivabene has described Michael Schumacher as “one of the great legends” of the Formula 1…

The Ferrari museum in Maranello, Italy, launched a special exhibition, on his birthday, “both as a celebration and a mark of gratitude to the most successful Prancing Horse driver ever.”

Celebrating Schumacher 50th birthday, Arrivabene said in an interview at Maranello:

“I’d like to remember Michael for the things I know & for what we have experienced together. I think the win in Spain ’96 is the most memorable one, nobody expected it. It was like watching the beginning of a legend, and this remains in my heart. He was simply unique”

According to reports from Italian media, Mick Schumacher will join Ferrari’s young driver’s academy, after the son of seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher refused a similar offer from Mercedes.

Mick Schumacher, who will race in Formula 2 in the coming season, will follow the footsteps of his father, who won five consecutive world championships with a red car.


“Mick Schumacher will join Ferrari’s young driver’s academy, after the son of seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher refused a similar offer from Mercedes.”

The 19-year-old talent now makes the obvious step up to F2 and will continue his partnership with Prema Racing, the team with which he won this year’s European F3 title and who also helped Ferrari-bound Charles Leclerc claim the F2 title in his rookie season in 2017.

Although Motorsport’s report makes clear that Schumacher is yet to sign with Ferrari, it is claimed that he has decided that a spot in Ferrari’s programme suits better, a move perhaps enforced by Leclerc’s meteoric rise.
