This list brings something that is a bit off topic, but somewhat related to the subject here. Often I have heard folks in the past (not here, other places) say stuff like "Scott Speed sucks" "Hamilton is a crappy driver" "De La Rossa couldn't drive if his life depended on it" ... This kind of talk just drives me up a wall. None of the current crop of F1 drivers suck. All of them are incredible talented drivers. You can't make it to F1 by being a crappy driver. Fewer people have driven an F1 car in competition than have been launched into space. it's a very select club, and you have to be good at what you do to gain membership. Although the pay drivers of the past were for sure an exception to this. Yeah that's right Ricardo Rosset, I am talking ABOUT YOU!!!!
Jarno Trulli was recently quoted as saying that he thinks all the drivers are about half a second away from each other, if they were all in the same car. If he feels that way, I would be inclined to agree with him. He does have quite a lot of experience in his field, ya know.
True that....unfortunate he kept overshadowed by other drivers like Schumi, Alonso, etc etc at that moment....
