That left me third in the championship. During a pitstop the car fell off its jack onto David's foot, so it was down to John and me to do the rest of the race. I was used to driving flat-out everywhere, but we had to hold to a set lap time to conserve fuel, plus we had a gearbox problem. I found it quite boring, because I was too young to appreciate the opportunity and the history of it all.
But we won the GT class and had the podium thing, with the crowds and the British flags waving for Jaguar. We were disqualified a week later anyway, because Tom had left the catalytic converter off the car. But I've still got the trophy. I had so much respect for those guys, it was a case of 'speak when you're spoken to', but it was fascinating to watch how they worked. Prost would be out of the car after every run, having an espresso and talking to the engineers.
Nigel was all about setting a time and then heading for the golf course. Ayrton wanted to get into absolutely everything, every smallest detail. Our first test together he did a couple of days and I was told to turn up for the third day. When I got there early he was already there, so I thought he'd decided to do the third day after all.

But he just wanted to listen to what I thought of the car, to know if my impressions accorded with his. I was going to be testing a lot of elements with the car, and he wanted to know whether he could trust my judgement. Once he felt comfortable with that, he left. In those days we did massive amounts of testing and, whenever there was a test, I wanted to be in the car.
For two reasons: I wanted to influence its development myself, and I wanted to stop somebody else getting in and showing potential. By now I had no money left. But we had no budget for round two, so my season would have run into the sand after that. But that weekend Ayrton Senna was killed at Imola, and the world changed. At Monaco, two weeks after Ayrton's death, they ran a single car for Damon [Hill] and then they summoned me to Jerez for a test. The press were touting Patrese, Barrichello, Comas, even Johnny Herbert for the drive, and I turned up at Jerez expecting lots of them to be there.
But it was only Damon and me. And, just as Frank Williams arrived, I crashed the car. There was a silly little tyre chicane where Martin Donnelly had his accident, and I clipped it, spun into the gravel and damaged the rear wing. That's blown that, I thought. But back in the garage Frank said, 'I'm not going to hold that against you. I'm here to tell you you're driving for us in Barcelona next weekend. I was just delighted to have the drive. I learned later from Julian Jakobi, Ayrton's manager, that Ayrton told Frank and Patrick [Head] he liked what he'd seen of me as a test driver, and said, 'This guy needs an opportunity.
So qualifying was my first run in the FW16, and it certainly felt more difficult to drive. I qualified ninth, and I was running sixth when an electronics problem put me out. In Canada I finished fifth: I got terrible cramp in my back and lost all feeling in my right foot, so I wasn't very strong there. Mansell was in the car for France, and at Silverstone I finished the race stuck in sixth gear, but got in the points again.
During that race my radio crackled into life: 'Dave? I wanted to secure my place in the team, Damon wanted to win the championship, so our approaches were different. He must have been under immense psychological pressure: he was 10 years older than me, a family man, he'd been number two to Prost, number two to Senna, he'd seen his team leader killed, and now here was a young team-mate showing no respect.
Well, not that, because I like to think I showed respect to all my team-mates, but a young team-mate on a different agenda. When I arrived at Monza I was told that my engineer was now John Russell, because Damon had insisted that, as number one driver, he should have the number one engineer. It wasn't a problem for me, because John was also an excellent engineer. Anyway, at Monza I was leading after the mid-race pitstops and I got the call on the radio to move over for Damon.
I didn't think he was close enough, but of course he was challenging Michael Schumacher for the title — Schumacher was serving a two-race ban at that point — so I did as I was told. Then my car ran out of fuel in the Parabolica on the last lap. Then, just as the Williams contract was about to be signed, Frank Williams reduced his offer to one year.
I really needed to get things balanced out. The season, David's only full year with Williams, brought him his first victory at Estoril — with pole and fastest lap — plus seven podiums. Frank is a remarkable individual. I never knew him before his accident, but the way he leads the organisation, makes the decisions that he does, his focus and clarity of thought, is extraordinary. I always found him straightforward to deal with, and I had enormous respect for him. His sense of humour can be disconcerting: he said to me once, pointing to his feet, 'You as a Scotsman will appreciate this.
I've made this pair of shoes last me 15 years. And Patrick I loved working with, because he has so much energy and enthusiasm. With Patrick there's no such thing as a discreet conversation. He'd come up and boom: 'Keep this to yourself, David,' and his voice would carry through office doors or across the garage. For six of them his team mate was Mika Hakkinen.
When David arrived Mika, after five years in F1, had yet to win a Grand Prix, and was just recovering from his dreadful accident in Adelaide. Ron Dennis is an honourable man and utterly loyal, to his team and to the people in his organisation. But I think he's better at the honeymoon than the marriage.
Within a team you can give both your drivers equal equipment in every way, but if one is given a little bit more psychological support it does make a difference. I'm only human, and it did erode my selfconfidence. You need to be in an environment that allows you to perform to your ultimate.
But you couldn't have argued that with me while I was there. After all, it was me that broke McLaren's long drought. When Mika finally did win in Jerez, it was only because I was told to move over for him, which at the time I was very unhappy about. To be honest, my personal preference would be to drive for a single-car team, so that all the energy within the team can be used positively. Some thought he behaved like a spoiled child, but I admire him for having the strength of character to leave. He joined the team believing he'd be the number one and the whole team would be behind him, and suddenly Lewis was the rising star and Fernando felt like a sort of negative distraction.
He realised early on that the less you say, the less you have to explain afterwards. He would never publicly be involved in any controversy, he kept his thoughts to himself and didn't expend energy unnecessarily. He was incredibly energyefficient. While we were team-mates it was very much a cool business relationship. We both lived in Monaco, we'd leave at the same time for each GP, get in our separate private aircraft, take off, land within minutes of each other, then go in separate cars to the circuit.
It wasn't because we had a bad relationship, it was just what we did. We had a couple of disagreements down the years which I see as the normal sporting speedbumps that you have, but we never actually fell out. Now we get on really well as neighbours; in fact we share an office down here with [Hakkinen's long-time manager] Didier Coton, and we do a number of things together. There was a lot of unreliability at McLaren then, and I seemed to pick up more of it than Mika.
But the next year, helped by those wins in Australia and Italy, he was third in the championship, two positions ahead of Mika. There was more controversy in Melbourne, when three laps from the end David was again ordered to move aside for Mika, who'd lost the lead after mishearing an instruction to pit. I have a photograph of the incident on my office wall, and Michael has all four wheels on the grass.
I said to him afterwards, 'You were off the track. It was raining hard, visibility was bad, and I knew he was about to lap me, so I moved off-line and lifted off, which was when he hit me. At Monza two weeks later we shook hands in front of the cameras, and then we talked about it in private. He still said it was my fault, so I remarked, 'Michael, have you ever been wrong? I had to come right off the throttle. After the stops the Ferrari was back in front, but the McLaren was soon challenging. I was as angry as I've ever been in a racing car.
When my student began school this year, he was unable to sound out words on his own. By November, he sounded out four words and wrote them beautifully. The grin on his face was ear-to-ear!
I had to hold back my tears. When Bryan stepped into my classroom during my first year of teaching, I knew I was in for a challenge. He was 16 years old and placed in 8th grade because he had never set foot inside a school in Guatemala or the United States. Thankfully, we were able to communicate in Spanish. I helped him through the cafeteria line and taught him how to ask basic questions in English—all while he was learning an 8th grade science curriculum.
I learned to use pictures and body language to convey meaning. I grew tremendously as a teacher because Bryan taught me to be humble and patient and to relate to students on their level. Her name is America. Within that same year, she also scored proficient in English language arts on the Smarter Balanced assessment. Simply put, I taught her as the linguistically talented child she is, built necessary background for complex academic concept development, and supported her in L1 at an advanced level while she gained L2 proficiency.
More important, I focused on teaching her academic routines using digital tools that would allow her to self-scaffold tasks in all subject areas. Helena Unified School District, St. Helena, California. I taught a 1st grade student who spoke only Arabic. I used a lot of gestures and also printed frequently used action words accompanied by pictures to paste on her desk. When I told the class to cut paper, I pointed to the picture of scissors and paper.
I used Google Translate to generate a list of vocabulary words that her parents could practice with her at home. I also recommended the website www.

For my part, I memorized some basic words in Arabic to help communicate with her. I have taught for more than 20 years as a classroom teacher and an English as a new language ENL teacher. This has made me extremely sensitive to the needs of the ENL population, in particular, students with interrupted formal education SIFEs. Crhissalba, currently in 7th grade, and Marielis, now in 4th grade, came to our school at the beginning of 3rd grade. Both girls could not read or write. After informal assessments, I met with their parents and mainstream teachers to discuss the challenges for both students and the small steps we needed to take for them to progress.
My main concern was to get both students to read and speak English well enough to communicate with their mainstream teacher. We used the ENL curriculum along with the mainstream class vocabulary and focused on certain reading skills each week. We followed up with a mini-lesson on writing skills.
The work was challenging for them, but I never let them reflect on what they couldn't do. Instead, I accentuated the positives and always told them to persevere. We celebrated small achievements, which gave the girls motivation to achieve higher goals. Today both Crhissalba and Marielis have made remarkable strides and are able to read independently. They can write stories and essays to express their ideas with confidence. Anibal is an ELL prodigy. He started as a non-English speaker in our school in 6th grade. He breezed through the silent period.
We advanced him right into 8th grade. By the end of his second year at the school, he exited our English language development program. He has never looked back. Now as a senior, he is a student leader and the chief bookkeeper for our student-run manufacturing plant. Our role—as his instructors—was to advocate for him and provide a solid culture of understanding and empathy.
