F1 » F1 Driver of the Year vote: 3rd


Ian - our German teacher was a Jewish man who escaped Germany in '37. Really great guy, by the way. Whilst I never learnt the language, I got to know him well on the opera trips he organised. He never went into too much detail, but what he did tell chilled me (even as a hooligan teenager). Please don't trivialise what happened in those days.

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year vote: 3rd


At least when Schumacher was dominant there was at least one good anthem to listen to (Italian). The Austrian anthem is dullness personified, which, considering their musical heritage, is very sad. And the Geman one is set to good music - although this, too, is Austrian, composed by Hadyn. Ian - I would have thought you would know hat your anthem is, n fact called " Deutschlandlied". Your description is the first line. Musically, ours (British) sucks. Quite fittingly, given the disparate nature of English/British history, there is no definitive composer attributed to the tune - John Bull has a tenuous claim, and G.F. Handel used the melody in one of his compositions, so the German influence continues. And a Happy New Year to all!

F1 » F1 Driver of the Year vote: 3rd


Drivers dominating a season over recent years seems never to be that popular - think back to Mansell in '92, and Prost a year later. The majority of fans, or those who follow F1 to a greater or lesser extent, like to see some uncertainty (that's why the FIA introduced the artificial factors). Personally, I would have put Alonso higher because of his efforts in an inferior car, but those who really know, the team principals voted Vettel Nr. 1 in a poll with some credibilty. Of course, the one that really DOES matter is the championship.......
