F1 calendar....for anyone interested

PostPost by: davidallen » Fri Oct 15, 2004 3:00 pm

I am not really a MS fan, but the great man himself said in a interview a
few years ago that if you wish to make F1 interesting, just ditch the wings!
However, he agreed that it would never be done, as they are the biggest
billboard on the car..........

Thanks for the support, David, I didn't know he had won at LM but as I said
think about it: karts, bikes, classic racers, all the tidally formulae to
get to F1, rally cars, ice cars, just about everything that his contract
allows him to have a go in. Oh, and football too!

Over to you chaps.........!

Didn't he win at Le Man before joining F1?

Pete! I totally agree with everything you said about F1,
but 'complete' driver?? A complete driver is a Dan Gurney, Richie
Ginther, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, etc; those who also DROVE sports
cars, NASCAR, Prototypes, Saloons, etc and still managed to win in
all of them. Schuey? Lets see how good he really is by putting him
in top notch cars in other venues. And none of this IROC BS. Yeah,
I know, the logistics of today's contracts probably precludes this.
Yes, he'd probably win but I'd like to see it happen.

Who are we talking about winning Le Mans before F1

No, he only took part once, in 1991, and finished 5th.
