"I remember this win," Berger says. "Of course I like it a lot, but I remember even more that it was a fantastic trip to Mexico with some friends of mine, and all we had in our heads was to party in Mexico City and go down to Acapulco..." He starts laughing, and continues: "And then, in the end, I ended up with the win in the race, and that was very unexpected, you know, so that was even better!"
DC: James Hunt and some of those guys were known to sometimes drive a little hungover - you were known for having a lot of fun on race weekends, so did you ever do anything like that?
Berger: "Yes, I used to. I used to party, I used to race and party, and there was never any question should I party because I had a race, or because I had a race should I go to a party - I always tried to do both! That means a lot of time it was a compromise on both sides because I would have to leave just when the party starts to get nice, and I couldn't win because I was still a bit dead from the night before!"
