Derek Warwick - Life after Formula One...

"What I'm trying to do at the moment is to come to terms with the fact that there is life after Formula 1. I'm managing to get myself really fired up with a lot of enthusiasm for this new Jaguar WSC project, but every so often the realisation that I'm probably not going to be in a Grand Prix car this year hits me hard.

Formula II Review
