After reading the news that Bradley Downton feels his number one driver Nathaniel Powers is in with a shot of the title, Liverpool driver Karl Beckenbauer got in touch voluntarily with F1FLive to give his input.
'I know I don't talk to you people during the race weekend, but I heard the news and needed to tell this to the world.'
'Downton thinks Powers can win the title? He's bonkers! But, I believe him. I certainly believe him over all of the crap my boss says. 'The title's over, the Franklins are going to win the title'. Shut up boss, give us a bit of credit, we're trying here. We need to get some bloody confidence in this team. If Downton thinks Powers can win, then why the hell can't we still target the title?'
We immediately rang Liverpool boss Mathershaw, and he said 'This is why I love Karl. He performs best when I piss him off, and I wanted him riled up. Great driver, great bloke. I'm really pleased he's said this - the plan is working. Not only do I think Karl can win the title. I've just seen his true motivation. I know he will win the title. All I can say is your move Franklin, you guys don't look motivated at the moment! And Adrien, get your act together lad, Karl is showing you up now!'
