Top Gear, BMW 325i and Marc Gene, October 2003
‘The reason why the man who finished sixth in the 1999 European Grand Prix is in the driving seat is simple. It’s one thing for us to say how great our BMW Compact is, but what we needed was a professional second opinion. And since it’s Marc Gene’s day job at WilliamsF1 to improve the team’s cars, if he can’t confirm what we’ve been saying, nobody can.’
