     James should have also explained how not to drink and drive in a GP... 

    PS: I loved the bastard!

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: James Hunt on the secret of being quick!

    You know, last weekend Martin Brundle (whom I respect immensely) said at the beginning of the Silverstone GP:

    .."The drivers are employees, after all"...

    I think it about sums up what the world has come to.

    They always were Costas... Enzo indulged in sacking and recruiting drivers all the time! Whoever didn't follow il Commendatore's orders was immidiately fired! Morerecently, Frank Williams had a habbit of sacking the most recent world champion as he thought that the victory was down to his superior car and right he was!

    Re: James Hunt on the secret of being quick!

    Perhaps... I just suspect that, back then, people would refrain from saying it so openly. F1 drivers were regarded more as heroes and less as employees. I believe that they also had to think less as employees, not least owing to the sport's fatality rates.

    The change is not so much on the distilled essence of things but, rather, on having lost our admiration for the idea of things. For example, in the end, we are all mammals but we usually prefer to not reiterate the fact. We hope that our actions and pursuits elevate us somehow. So, too, one would hope that F1 racing sets its drivers apart from the usual grind of making a living, albeit a very good one. If that is, ultimately, just a job then what do children have to look up to?
