  1. Prost was fortunate Senna got disqualified at Brazil and had mechanical problems (turbo and gearbox) at Estoril and Jerez. Those incidents really distorted the championship and, IMO, created the illusion Senna was the lucky point system gifted WDC.



    And then he got luckier in 1989.


    Anyhow, Kimi will kick ass in 2007.
     
  2. I'll love Alonso as soon as he sits in a Big Mac.
     
  3. And he didn't really had weak team mates.Senna,Arnoux,Lauda,Rosberg...

    edit: He was 17 years old when he began to drive gokarts.
    edit2: he lost the championship in 1983 because BMW was using an illegal fuel.
     
  4. indeed, but Alonso is such a big twat that he's fair game to everyone
     
  5. wat how
     
  6. They both died at the same numerical age...for example...65

  9. Alberto Ascari (July 13 1918 - May 26 1955)
    Antonio Ascari (September 15 1888 - July 26 1925)

    Both died aged 36, but not on the same date.
     
  10. i think his team-mate might take the game too him, but im supporting the iceman too.
     
  11. yeh he didnt die 54 years after his father did.
     
  12. McLaren will be the disgrace of Alonso as it was for Montoya.
     
  13. Durnig a sports car test, lemmie try find the whole story on it


    ANother Random Fact :
