-And this is coming from someone who has not missed an F1 race in the last 10 years and has barely even watched a full NASCAR race. But having read up a bit on NASCAR, and seeing these so called F1 greats flounder...at least I know enough to not trivialize it.
Sorry to tell you this but JV lucked into his championship and JPM never accomplished squat in F1. Those 2 guys are barely even average at best. Hardly the cream of the F1 crop. If it was a Schumacher, Vettel, Alonso, or Hamilton, or even Raikkonen, they would have done much better.
