    Waiting for the Senna movie and a dull night in got me wondering if you could make a film on any F1 person who would it be?

    Massa for me. Boy from Brazil thrown a life line at Ferrari when noone thought he could do it, worked alongside Schumi, first Brazilian to win at home since Senna, lost a title at the last corner, dog of a car in 09, nearly died, came back and struggled with Alonso. The end isn’t great but when he gets the championship it’ll be a much more cheery ending.

    Alonso, Enzo, Dennis, Mansell, Piquet Snr, Prost, Hawthorn, Frank W and Gilles would be good to do too.

    Above all, I think I’d say Jackie Stewart. He wasn’t just a sublimely brilliant driver, he could see the madness around him for what it was and got out before it killed him.

    On top of these, Damon Hill. His dramatic F1 years were still just a sideshow for a dramatic life.

    And maybe a Prost one for necessary counter-balance to the Senna film. That guy is just never appreciated enough in comparison.

    Petrov’s Manager.

    Is that the blonde one with the glasses they always show? And why Petrov’s manager?

    But I would really like to see a film on Rubens Barrichello. It would be interesting to see how it was for all of those years at Ferrari and I know he has some amazing stories from Imola ’94 where he nearly became the weekend’s first victim.

    Rubinho or Massa would be great, dramatic videos. Gilles Villeneuve would be excellent, and so would the Super Swede Ronnie Petersen.

    Mine would have to be Sir Jack Brabham. To go halfway around the world and win the biggest motor sport championship is a fairy tail. Then to do it again in a car and with an engin that he built, well lets just say that will never happen again. Plus the man is just an absolute gentleman.

    Sakon Yamamoto.

    Although Frank Williams would be a brilliant subject. To me, the guy is the epitome of F1 and there’s no one on the grid who I respect and admire more.
