In order to drive in F1 in any era brave is the first requirement.What Stirling is saying is the chance of survival in his day was slim.To try to degrade him through lack of a world championship is rubbish.He drove 500 races and won 200 driving anything that would make the starting line.

The current drivers that get the same recognition as Sir Sterling has at least 1 world driving championship title.

Although cars are safer today it does not make today's driver any less braver than those of yesteryear, it is an insult to suggest that out and out racers like Alonso Grosjean and that Lewis guy are less brave because the governing body has taken steps to make the sport safe. It would be like saying a pugilist who boxed today is less braver than a pugilist who boxed in the era when there was no gloves, just because a sport evolves does not mean the participants are less brave.
