Berger was as quick and good as most of his peers- sad for him some were named Senna and Prost…………… oh, and Piquet and Mansell. Maybe if he were born 7 years later he would be a 2 x WDC and the Schu just a 5x??
As for Sir Stirling Moss my comments were never meant, and I hope not taken, to be disrespetful- far from it. All I am saying I find it hard to have a guy at no. 1 of all time that has not been on top over a season- because thats what its all about.
As I have said I saw my first F1 race in 1986 and was hooked until Ayrton died in 1994. Saw a few years after but to be honest missed most F1 from 1997-2005 due to Senna’s death and the most boring F1 era EVER. I started watching most races but got really bored with the whole BS of F1! I have been back in a BIG way since 2007 an see F1 in its best shape- well- ever :) But I have read alot of F1 history (and still do now) and know more about the 70′s than the 10 years I was elsewhere.
So I know about Sir Stirling handing Hawthorn the chance for a title, see the respect he gave to a team leader (in a time where a driver could take their team-mates car if theirs failed) and while I respect
his decision, its not one made by a champion. He should have had that driver killer instict and taken hit title!!
