RM>_ F1 needs Mansell. It's not just the racing that counts. Even we at rasf1
RM>_ need Mansell. Let us not discuss his driving capabilities. We all know h
RM>_ fast, so seems to be Coulthard. It's that little bit extra he adds to F1
RM>_ The way he drives (aggressivley), the way he qualifies (on the edge and
RM>_ even more important over the edge), the way he deals with the media and
RM>_ (exaggerating, overdoing, marveless expressions, .......) and the way he
RM>_ celebrates his victory on the podium ( marvelous acting, grandfather and
RM>_ 2 of his grandchildren on both sides). Can we live without Nige? Maybe b
RM>_ F1 will not be the same without Nige.
I agree. Mansell brought a spark back to F1 qualifying at Mangy-Cours
(almost beating Damon) and his driving in the last three races of the
year definitely made things a lot more interesting just when things were
getting a bit dull. You'd think some of the younger drivers would be
just as aggressive, but they sure weren't in 1994. Bernie and I agree
for once: Thank God for Nigel!
