Funny you should mention that.... I was chatting to Jeremy tonight and he suggested exactly the same thing. Great minds think alike. :D

No I could see that you had put lots of thought into your answer and consequently you were the winner. Hope you continue to join in. Your points will be added to the list and the winners will be announced at the end of the year and prizes awarded.

I just wish I could have seen Senna, Prost, Schumi, Hakkinen and Alonso race on the same track...
Which gave me an idea.
Instead of just the usual questions and answers this time I am going to make up a list of 22 drivers that I would like to see race each other. Hope this makes sense.
I want you guys to send me your list of 22 drivers and why you would pick them. Sort of like a team of the century.
I will award points on how many of mine you picked and also points for good reasons. You may put different drivers to me but if I like your reasoning then I will award points.
If you all hate the idea then let me know and I will have to work on a normal type quiz.
I know I'm late with this, how did I do, jacfan?


01] Ayrton Senna - simply the best ever
02] Jim Clark - see 'Ayrton Senna'
03] Gilles Villeneuve - never witnessed a more exciting driver to watch
04] Stirling Moss - could drive anything to victory
05] Jackie Stewart - wisest F1 driver
06] Ronnie Peterson - see 'Gilles Villeneuve'
07] Fangio - 5x WC (and over the age of 50)
08] Niki Lauda - "king rat"
09] Nuvolari - legendary;the man Gilles Villeneuve was compared to most
10] "The Pampas Bull" Froilan Gonzales - are you joking?
11] Jochen Rindt - the best of his era
12] Emerson Fittipaldi - see 'Jochen Rindt'
13] Rene Arnoux - king of the turbos
14] Chris Amon - one of the all time greats
15] Jean Alesi - see 'Chris Amon'
16] Patrick Depailler - quietly great
17] Francois Cevert - good looking and damn good
18] Nigel Mansell - "Il Lione"
19] Keke Rosberg - fun to watch
20] Nelson Piquet - master tactician; 3x WC
21] Michael Schumacher - 7x WC
22] Lewis Hamilton - outstanding debut
:oops:
