6 wins from 68 starts. but an early death creates legends

Are you thinking it's the son rather than the father? Jacques is nowhere near this list, though his career is all about what could have been. I think Hamilton is on a very similar trajectory.

No - I got the right one. I just didn't see Gilles as a legend (see Inselaffen's comment too).

I can still remember very clearly where I was when I heard of Senna's death. Can't say that for any news event other than 9/11. (Or at least I can't recall that I can, if you see what I mean...)

Edit: Actually not true: Lady Di and Amy Winehouse. I'll probably think of some more...

Not sure I follow...but it was cancelled so we could all go home and watch the news.

As for Schumacker, he's a fantastic driver, probably the best ever, but lacks sportsmanship.

Weird. I agree yet I still think he's got some class about him.

Disagree totally, he'll never be a Senna/Fangio/Clark, even Prost

Apples with Pears.

Cars and driving in the Senna era (for example) were hugely different to that of Moss or the modern era.

Like comparing Pele to Messi, so hard to do.
