A second chance is just one way of putting it; strictly speaking, Senna had a second chance. But I doubt he had a team working around him that sought to bring out the best in him. A second chance in that sense is something I believe would yield results. Soooooooo this! Senna is a driver who began o...

I might make an app that people can use when watching an F1 race. You mute your TV and then select the engine noise you like the most. So if the sound of the V6s is a deal breaker you can just load up the V8 sound and play it through your surround sound system. I'll charge a dollar for it and by al...
