The most amazing race...
October 24, 2006
First of all, I hope you liked the tribute to Michael Schumacher that we have made for you on the official website. Then, in my opinion, I think that the Grand Prix of Brazil was certainly Felipe Massa's finest race. As you are aware, scooping the home race for a Brazilian is almost like winning the title. This should not be forgotten as a Felipe deserves recognition for his extraordinary weekend as he shone from start to finish. Maybe though, and this is the odd thing, it was also Michael Schumacher's best drive. He excited everybody, fans and non-fans alike. Seeing Michael drive as he did, despite all the problems he suffered during the weekend, took me back to the era reigned over by the great champions of the past. Ayrton Senna at Donnington comes to mind, a classic race in which he lapped everybody in the pouring rain. Gilles Villeneuve’s performance at Jarama is another occasion to remember when his Ferrari turbo held off a posse of determined pursuers for the entire race. In my opinion, a great driver should not only be judged by the number of races he has won or titles claimed. More often, single episodes, like Sunday, are more telling. What do you think?
