Are you aware...?

November 21, 2006 · Posted by staffFerrari

In these days – just before the first Formula 1 and Moto GP tests - in the world of motorsports it’s without doubt Valentino Rossi’s performance that catches the eye. Again it’s him, this time at the Rally Worldcup in New Zealand. This appearance has  - to my own surprise – in parts divided critics and opinion formers of a good part of the specialized media. Some called it a miracle, others just reminded some virtuous aspects of the phenomenon from Tavullia and still others declared as nearly disillusioned. Excuse me, but I have to say: Are you aware this was a real WRC World Cup race, one of the most difficult and hardest tests of the whole season, where all the big players participate? Are you also aware that a similar result would have been a sensational result even for a Formula 1 driver? Think about it a bit as if Michael Schumacher raced in an international Super Cross competition and comes in on the eleventh spot! Are you aware of what this means for one who, as a profession, usually tames about 250 bhp but on two wheels only? Are you aware that this man is the only driver in the world, and one of just a few of all the times, who has the taste and the capacity to go fast with every vehicle on two and four wheels? I think this is just incredible and spectacular at the same time; what do you think ....?

    I think Rossi did remarkably well, Gianpaolo. I believe it was only his 2nd Rally? The first time he did not finish. As you say, it is like a complete novice to single seaters finishing an F1 GP & finishing in front of half the professional F1 drivers.
