Re: Should Verstappen get a penalty for his overtake on LeCl

I still remember when people complained about Michael Schumacher when Juan Montoya tried to pass him around the outside of Tosa in Imola in 2004. They called Schumacher a dirty driver for that and now here is Max doing a worse version of it and now it's okay to do such a thing and it's good racing!...

Re: Watched the Mario Andretti TV show,how is he viewed as a

I also place Mario on the top pedestal. I first met Mario in 1974, while I was messing around with a F5000 team at Mosport. it was an exceptionally busy weekend, with both F5000 and Can-Am running back-to-back. On Saturday morning I had a few spare moments, and decided to sit on the pit wall ( a pe...
