Minardi:No points again, but trying

Well, last race or so somebody praised Pedro Lamy
for his great race and rightfully so.
I'd like to add that this time in Suzuka, Luca Badoer
drove a solid race and finished 9th ahead of Wendlinger
and Lamy. Good job for the steady Badoer.
Hopefully next year, they can get the Zetec and compete
for points

Aye, their doing a good job win a package designed for a Mugen Honda V10 (no
wonder they keep complaining about a lack of power).  However, I'm pretty
sure that they won't get the Zetec next year - mainly because Ford aren't
going to make a Zetec next year.  I remember reading Minardi are trying to
persuade Ford to supply them with an engine called the JS2 or something...

: Lamy probably would have been faster than Badoer but his car
: suffered from massive brake failure, all in all the two of them have
: been extremely consistent, more so than any other driver combo that
: I can think of.

: John

Break failure? Pah! That's nothing *grin*. Mario Andretti went through most
of his 1978 WC winning season with *zero* brakes because they wore out
after about 50% of the race! But things were different then - the cars
were slower and Lamy isn't Andretti.

Lamy did a great job and desrves all the credit he gets...

And Hakkinen drove in his debut GP with a loosening steering wheel. It
actually got loose when he drove over a bump coming to the first
corner.

And Rosberg drove end of one GP with his helmet visor (sp?) open,
since it was all smudged with oil from other cars. If that wouldn't be
an experience to remember, nothing would.
