Your F1 Idol?

Post by Marco »

Ok, if you could have lunch with your F1 Idol (dead or alive) who would it be and what would you ask?

Mine would be Fangio, and I'd ask him how he felt about modern day F1. :)

After lunch with Giles, however, my dinner would be with Slavica and I would pump her for all the naughty secrets about Bernie, which would help - when published - to get rid of him once and for all :D

You'd pump her...thanks for that DD! :lol:

I'd probably meet with Michael Schumacher, he's shaped F1 over the last two decades and, despite how much we love to hate him, he's probably the greatest, most complete racing driver of them all. And from what I hear, he's actually one of the nicest people to grace the F1 paddock.

Nomex suit on, ready to be flamed... :D

You're a pest DD, had I said 'the driver we all love', you'd have said 'take me out of your collective 'we''!! :P

Would anyone want to talk to Hill, Damon that is?

If it was cheaper for our drivers to make it in Europe there would be a shitload more F1 drivers from Australia!

Italians are right in the thick of things in Europe and look at what they have achieved! :lol: No excuses there!
