If you're in an F1 car and a "hungry" Maldo is behind you, you're probably looking in your mirrors at every corner and wondering.....is he gonna banzai me into this corner or not? Will it be the next one? Should I leave him space and let him go because I wanna finish this race myself and get points for my team...

And by doing that, you forget all about overtaking the guy in front of you, just surviving the onrushing Maldo!

Releasing him would be the smart thing to do though I think, because if he doesn't crash into you there's a good chance he'll crash into the next car ahead, and then you'll have gained one spot by letting him past. Hey, if you're lucky he might even take out more than one car ahead!

aaahh sodesu, the law of averages....or is that the law of diminishing returns? Not sure which, but it makes sense :-)

On the other hand, if everyone lets him through on that assumption, he might end up winning the race! Or maybe not...because he'll come up against the top guys...and they won't give an inch.

Maybe that's how he took his single race win, and now everyone else has learned from that?

Oh and Taz, nice link! Here's another one I like:
