The two 12-cylinder cars were on the pace of the Jaguars and the Peugeot 905 ‘bis’ at the Nürburgring, but Schlesser’s retired with a gearbox problem caused, apparently, by gear ratios being too short, while Schumacher’s stopped early with a failed engine.“We are short of parts for many reasons” said the likeable doctor. Drive to the gearbox was taken from the central point of the crankshaft, to reduce torsional vibrations, and the six-speed gearbox was transverse to the block, and higher up, to make more space for the underfloor venturi. Other team managers reckoned the Irishman was taking a big risk, but not Tom Walkinshaw, who’d noted Schumacher for some while.Although the Francorchamps circuit is nearest to Schumacher’s home town, just over the border, he had never raced there. The Germans, Swiss and Austrians celebrated as only they knew how, and for a while Dr Hiereth was too overcome with tears to speak.At long last, the Mercedes C291 had come good, Schlesser and Mass finishing safely in fifth place, and in all honesty the whole team believed in the future.

Now, at 750 kg, the Mercedes C291 was a properly competitive car, on paper, at any rate.Its reliability went downhill, though.

Bertrand Gachot was imprisoned in London for spraying a cab driver with CS gas, apparently after a minor traffic accident, and an opening presented itself in Eddie Jordan’s Formula 1 car, the Jordan 191, at the Belgian Grand Prix.
The Mercedes C291 was not the finest racing car ever to bear the three-pointed star. The grids were poor, television coverage was poor, the calendar was shaky to say the least. So, the mighty Mercedes team from Stuttgart, represented at the circuits by Peter Sauber’s 50-strong team from Hinwil, Switzerland, literally crushed their opposition into the dust.The next season, 1991, would be different. I was so excited by this that I told Dr Hiereth and Leo Ress that they had to go out there and see what young Schumacher was doing with their car.
