A guy who scraped his way to a single F1 title in possibly the greatest car ever to race in F1 doesn't get to criticise drivers who are out there scrapping in midpack to earn themselves a better drive in indycar.

Good idea but it would have to be not a ex indy car driver. If michael andretti gets in whats the point he already knows indy cars it would have to be non indy car driver. If they are trying to prove how good indy car drivers are. They cant let ex indy drivers in it would be pointless..!!!!!!

@cruachan it amazes how much people talk about perceptions rather than actually what happened.

97 williams was good, but greatest car ever? hardly. the team were struggling much more than in 96(also the senna trail), they lost their stable, dependable driver in damon. instead they had JV who was fantastic but lacked experience and HHF who had never achieved anything.

The williams on that period was never ever in the league of 92 williams or 2002 ferrari or current red bull. damon esp is never given credit for he did. anyone(who actually) watched the races will remember how rubbish williams strategy was and how slow their pit stops were compared to benetton. its no good being a tenth quicker in qualy if you throw away 3 seconds every pit stop!

anyways tho great williams was its a myth that they miles ahead. 96 they had a brilliant line. it worked, youthful speed vs experience and confidence. why they had to change i have no idea.

we missed out on damon vs michael round 3 in 97.
