    It is, isn't it?!

    Somewhere there is a Senna vs. MSC split-screen comparo from non-simultaneous JP GPs. Senna was rowing with the shifter so his hand was sometimes off the wheel, MSC was using paddles instead and was a lot less busy then. Now MSC would be just as busy fidlding with buttons and knobs.

    I can see an old-style brake bias lever, OK, but an entire video game on the wheel for the driver to dial in every little instant? I don't know if this is what the idea was behind racing or not.

    Good God,at 1:26 Senna took his hand off the wheel just before entering 130R almost as if he was searching for an extra gear to go even faster.I wouldn't even dare do that on my PS3!

    Yes Senna did not mess around!

    I wonder though, could he be doing or considering a bias adjustment going in rather than grabbing for a gear? Or could he even be readying himself for a mess at the entry and planning ahead for a downshift etc.?

    Senna was something else.

    The title is misleading but it is Senna at his finest; there is no MSC in the video despite the title:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_W-BOwRjvs

    There's also that one time when he spun and had the presence of mind to put it into reverse to get out of the way nonetheless, and that other time when he DNFed and Nigel Mansell -- who at the time had one of the three top mustaches in all of motorsport, rivaled only by Keke Rosberg and Juha Kankkunen, but I digress as usual -- stopped to give him a ride back to the paddock, and Senna climbed onto the bodywork and held on. Mansell had won the GP I think.

    Anybody have video of MSC missing that infamous penalty kick a few years back?

    What the $&@@ was I talking about? Why am I rambling? Sorry guys.

    The new Merc has a nose that's off putting initially but I still want to see MSC or ROS win in it for some reason. This would not have been the case 20 years ago frankly. The green in the livery isn't my fav but it at least makes it easier to distinguish the Merc from the McLaren.

    Where did the numbers go? Remember the big "28" on the Ferrari for example? Much better that way.

    That's the video! Those were the days. Nigel and Ayrton show up together at the paddock. Doubt it'd ever happen today.

    The Reinmeister did it.I know it was just Friday Practice but he topped the time sheets for the first time in Friday Practice since 2004.

    The old fart still has it in him.
