This question and dreams lived with me for a long time. As a small kids, all boys from the block we wanted to be “Mikylauda”. We hardly knew, who he was, we heard something-like from adults, but all we were sure, he was the coolest and fastest guy on the Earth. Niky Lauda was synonym for racing driver behind iron curtain in early eighties, today I haven’t the slightest idea, why just he.
Later about half of eighties, when leafing “World of Motors” magazine, which brought twice a year with half of the year delay some photos and “news” from F1 races, I liked most McLaren red-white Marlboro livery and “I decided that I must to be a McLaren fun”. In second half of eighties there were couple of races even on TV, I read sport newspapars with fresh reports and I loved Senna (and had to hate Prost and Ferrari as a good ultra fun).
During unhappy 1994 I was already on college, Senna’s end and many other new interests blew me totaly out of F1 for some years. When I came back, McLarens weren’t red-white but silver. Because I recalled that I was ultra I have been staying to support McLaren. ;-)
I cant write I want to be Senna and it is not only because of his death. He seems to me today not so sweet and pure (as a man) like in past. Today I would write Jenson Button. Calm power, long not easy way up, title, and of course pretty good girl and McLaren. :-)
There isn`t problem with upshifting but with downshifting. In real racing drivers mostly learn by heart how many times need to click left shift paddle before each corner during breaking. I use automatic because learning by heart is wasting of time for me. And of course, I won’t use manual untill winning the championship is duck soup for me.
There are more possibilities now but the point is to bet just one name. I say Kobayashi (perhaps in Montreal).
@estesark – I felt free to express myself about this off-topic with possible joke or overstatment. If you found it unnecessary, feel free to delete it.
Only automatic gearbox and racing line in corners (due to breaking points). Both take some time to learn by heart in real and I dont want to learn but play. Nevertheless I tried all assists one after one, TC is definitely biggest help imo.
mine is everywhere the same. my nick (spacák means “sleeping bag” in czech) and 09 (lenght of my flaccid penis) written in red square button. :-)
