Schumacher takes aim at F1 legend with BELITTLING comment

Former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher has taken a swipe at former McLaren Group CEO Ron Dennis, labelling him as a man he could never have worked under.

Dennis holds a legendary status in the sport, having worked with McLaren for more than 35 years, spending 28 of them as team principal.

During that time, the former McLaren chief enjoyed several drivers’ and constructors’ championship successes and worked alongside numerous racing legends, such as Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton.

But ralf Schumacher says he could never have worked under him

Schumacher: 'I could never have worked with Dennis

Schumacher, brother of seven-time champion Michael, debuted in F1 with Jordan in 1997, before joining Williams two years later and spent six seasons with the team.

He joined Toyota in 2005 before retiring from the sport in 2007, having achieved six wins in his career.

While speaking on the Formula For Success podcast with David Coulthard and his first boss in F1 Eddie Jordan, the German discussed his career and had some rather interesting comments about Dennis.

When asked by Jordan if he was the worst boss he had worked under, Schumacher replied: “No, no, no, it’s not true. No, no, no.

“I mean first of all he gave me the opportunity [to race in F1]. It could have been worse.

“I could have ended up with Ron Dennis. I'm completely happy that that didn't happen. I have to say I couldn't work with a man like that. So no, I'm happy.”
