@Woodpecker - Hahahahaha - I had the same opinion of Mansell - nothing to do with race - everything to do with opening mouth before brain is engaged. I think you will find several regular posters on here have the same opinion about Hamilton - and for the same reason.

Just to explain - Woodpecker is an insipid brand of cider.......

No, richard, lulu will dredge up some distant Teutonic relation and claim he's more German than Nico!!!
