Thanks for the kind comments and Rush on!!!!Outstanding, I agree with everything you have said. It really is unfortunate that it has entered this sport.
Loved your comment about LH acting like a teenage girl. LMAO. You are right. And honestly, he is a very good driver. However, it's also the driver/Team combination that has made him so successful. I wonder where he would be with another team. Like Michael and Ferrari. Many times it's because everything just comes together with certain combinations and they click.
Thanks for an insightful and enjoyable post.
Oh you're spot on about the combination and timing. I don't think he's the most talented; but he's an outstanding driver. I'll liken it to my favourite driver of all time Alain Prost. I hated Senna, hated him (that was neccesary to be Prost fan....LOL); but never thought he wasn't a great driver and probably the most talented drive of all time (cannot speak of Fangio since never saw him drive). Senna was prone to stupid mistakes at times - thinking Monaco one year. That rivalry was the best there has ever been in motorsport - period. It divided nations!!! But good grief...Prost, Senna, Mansell, Piquet, Lauda - that level of talent was just shocking.
