I can't stand Nigel, mainly because he probably complained to his Mrs that the dinner wasn't quite right, or the angle of the telly was wrong. Nigel Whinged for England, or the Isle Of Man or somewhere. The rest of the quote above I totally agree with (apart from the 'tache).I love Nigel Mansell. One of my top 5 all time favourite drivers. Maybe not the most naturally talented, but amazingly brave, and one of the few men who gave as good as he got with Senna, especially in the later years. Some of the battles they had are ingrained in my F1 memory bank. 3 moments that define Mansell for me are;
Him and Senna wheel to wheel at Catalunya 90/91 (can't remember which)
Him and Senna at Monaco '92. Mansell would have won that race if anyone else was in the lead on those last laps
Him flying round the outside of someone (Berger I think) at the Peralta in Mexico in the Ferrari. One of the bravest (or potentially stupid ) moves I've ever seen
Oh, and his 3 'taches deserve respect. (including eyebrows here) What does he feed those things?
Webber seems to make comparisons of himself to Mansell being a late developer into winning races but he does not have the race craft of MansellYou think that the two of them having about 25 Grand Prix victories less than him might have anything to do with it?
Don’t talk wet! even in a Mansell thread you need to have a dig at Schumacher, I think you’re obsessed with him!Yes, Mansell was as balsy and as hard and as brave as anyone in an extremely tough driver era.
Juan Pablo, in comparison, drove in a cheap era which was the post-Hakkinen / pre-Hamilton/Vettel gap.
There was only Schumacher and Alonso and Raikkonen...and he got his ass handed to him by Kimi who was only in F1 for the money...and Alonso is finding out just how tough it is to beat the likes of Hamilton/Vettel. Schumacher had huge advantages and has been dismantled without them.
Back at ya!Don’t talk wet!
