  • Another view of Hitler

    It would never occur to me to feel ambivalent about Hitler. But I'm not the boss of Formula One.

    Does he have a favourite historical dictator — Stalin, perhaps, or Mussolini? “Maggie’s gone,” he says. Then he pauses and continues, thoughtfully: “In a lot of ways, terrible to say this I suppose, but apart from the fact that Hitler got taken away and persuaded to do things that I have no idea whether he wanted to do or not, he was in the way that he could command a lot of people able to get things done.”

    He must know that this is controversial . . . but the delivery is deadpan rather than deliberately provocative. He seems to see Hitler as a passive bystander who was too weak to stop the Holocaust.

    “In the end he got lost so he wasn’t a very good dictator. Either he knew what was going on and insisted, or he just went along with it — either way he wasn’t a dictator.”
