This person deserves a good slap.
But still it might be true…
Nah he won races and challenged for titles. He is going down in F1 history. If you can only remember the champions you’re a crummy F1 fan. Like, come on, some of the most memorable drivers from the nineties include Eddie “search him on youtube with “trousers down”” Irvine, Gerhard “no fucks given, only pranks” Berger, and Jean “one win all the tears, PS I’M THE SEXIEST MAN EVER” Alesi. Olivier Panis, Giancarlo Fisichella, Ricardo “three decade career” Patrese, Jos the Boss, and blessed Rubinho, just to name a few.
Formula One history isn’t just champions, it isn’t just the winners. If you only focus on the guy who finished first (nine times out of ten because of his car mind you) you’re missing 20+ brilliant drivers driving brilliantly. Luca Badoer crying after his Minardi gave up the ghost the one time he was running in points in 1999, or the celebration of Super Aguri’s first points. So many more emotions than just “happy cause my team won/sad cause my team lost”
Also, one more thing: nobody bad mouths Webber, mate. Say that to my face at the Queenbeyan Leagues Club and not on the internet, MATE.
