Well, Nigel Mansell was 39 when he won his title, jack Brabham was 40 and Fangio was in his 40's when he started his F1 racing career. Of course, you can't compare like for like but these days, the drivers are so fit, they can continue far longer than they did even 20 years ago. Also, the sport is a lot less dangerous than it once was so the mental side doesn't take it's toll as it once did. I hope you stick round for a while yet Mark. You almost made it in 2010. Let's see some more of those banzai moves again, such as on Alonso into Eau Rouge.
