Absolutely! Even the "slowest" driver is exceptional. And the rest of us :-
simply armchair drivers feeling jealous and insignificant. Perhaps that's
why this news group is so bad tempered.

Absolutely! The best race of the year by far.

Absolutely! The best couple of passing maneouvers this year. Funny that
Eddie is either great (e.g. Monaco) or crap! Still, at least he's
speaks his mind, and funny.

Hmm, I think you've lost the plot a bit here. JV (and 6 others) broke the
rules, and were punished according to the rulebook. No FIA ***, no
Anti-JV secret socities, simply the rules applied.
JV has the same trouble that Damon had with Shuey. MS was/is a git, and
was fined for dubious practises (cheating), black flagged for breaking the
rules etc in his 1st championship year. Most of Germany was on the
same *** theory then as now. He shunted DH off the track to
win (IMHO ;) yet DH seems to be most hated (although in this news group
everyone seems to be hated!).
Why, 'cos MS was/is much much better than DH at the PR game.
JV has the same problem, his PR is crap. He speaks his mind, unfortunately
his mind can be crass and childish, and it bugs people that someone earning
huge amounts of money is crass and childish. It's the old jealously thing
JV gets all upset 'cos his tactics didn't work, has a massive whinge
to the press, and threatens (again) to quit. Ho hum... gis a break Jacques.
Just drive the car, win or lose the WC, and if you can't say something
interesting or funny, or even boring (bring back Mansell) shut the *** up
