LOL Jos Verstappen! I wonder if he and Schumi are still best friends. I didn't like at all what I've read him being a wife beater! What a bummer that was to me.
I kinda miss all the drivers you mentioned. Also DC.....I liked DC so much. I'm only a woman.... Doeiiiiiiiiiiiii
I think Jos and Schumi don't see eachother that much anymore nowadays. They did spend at lot of vacation together with both families though.
Don't believe everything what's written about Verstappen. He's like Axl an easy target by the media (although obviously only in the Netherlands, the only country where most people only complained about and criticized Verstappen, while in England and Germany many people admired his racing style and no-nonsense attitude.
I hope he will win the 24 hours of Le Mans next year for Aston Martin!
If you want to watch DC, you just have to check the BBC broadcasts of the Grand Prixs. DC is a main guest, together with Eddie Jordan. Cool stuff. After the race is over, I always switch from RTL7 to BBC1.
Schumacher is the man. No other driver is, or was, as committed as him. No-one else put the hours into testing as he did, and no one else was as obsessed with attention to detail. Ross Brawn has said that he is the best driver ever, as he was willing to listen to advice, unlike others like Senna. It also angers me when people say he isn't a nice person: he would buy presents for everyone in his team's kids, and was really good friends with them all. And let's face it, he's led a really quiet personal life, unlike some of the playboy drivers.
Schumacher is godlike.
Brawn only worked with Schumi and others of his and the current generation. How the hell can he compare Schumi with Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost, Juan-Manuel Fangio, Alberto Ascari, Gilles Villeneuve, Keke Rosberg, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda, Nelson Piquet, Emerson Fittipaldi, Nigel Mansell etc?
I can imagine that Schumacher is personally a nice guy, but on track he was sometimes controversial. Adelaide 1994 and Jerez 1997, final rounds of the championship. I can remember both moments by heart. Similarities: Schumacher's title rival is faster, tries to overtake him in a justified way, but gets smashed of track. In 1994 Schumacher retires immediately after the crash, Hill carries on but has to retire in the pits: Schumacher champion. In 1997 schumacher retires, while Villeneuve can carry on in first place, even allowing both McLarens to pass at the end of the race, finishing 3rd: Villeneuve champion.
