JJJ and chris h
So wow us all with what you've achieved during your mega careers. Come on, What have you done?

Nigel is a legend. Who can forget the great qualifying and race battles with Senna?

If either of you knew anything at all about motor racing, you would show a little respect.

This forum is a magnet for cretinous comments

Really?

Remember, this is the guy who actually accused Tiff Needell of deliberately trying to kill him!!!!!!!!!

Respect was never too high up Mansells own agenda so I don't think either he or any of his supports should be getting on their high horse about it.

@Insideline

Get off your high horse m8. That the guy could drive a racecar pretty well doesn't mean we can't call him out on the count of being a bigheaded twit when he acts like one. Or should he get a free pass for that just because he once faked to pass out on the podium when he couldn't get past Senna in Monaco in a deeply superior car?

god almighty! mansell won in a superlative newey car, which was years ahead in performance, and he is a GREAT driver? to me, he always came over as a complainer, and a one hit wonder.

Mansell was a good driver but a complete pain in the ar$e. Every time he got out the car he had to act as if he had just wrestled a tiger for 2 hours, it was embarrassing watching other drivers jump out their cars fresh as a daisy at the end of a race then Nige appears, staggering around and fainting!

Have look at him in Dallas 84 on youtube, pushing his car, faints, but has the presence of mind to roll out the way of the wheels, not a bad trick for someone that's unconscious!

I might nip over to Jersey and offer him 3 grand for a 4 grand car just to see if he faints again, friggin drama queen.
