Today we announce the author of the foreword to ‘Senna versus Schumacher And Other Formula One Rivalries That Never Happened’:
Kees van de Grint
Kees closely worked with Michael Schumacher and Ferrari in their championship-winning seasons as tyre engineer and consultant when he was employed by Bridgestone.
Prior to that he witnessed the karting careers of Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost from up close. Stirling Moss and Jim Clark were his childhood heroes.
Kees is currently vice-chairman to the FIA’s karting committee.
“These are interesting stories to read”, Kees said after reading the manuscripts. “Sometimes I found myself lost between fiction and reality.”
