Very True indeed......the prancing horse just finally got back to a full
speed gallop in the mid-90's.   I don't claim to have been a fan since
their 79 championship ( i was 4 then) but many a sunday saw the McLaren
domination in the late 80's.

BTW how about SATO!!!!!!  I liked the guy when he brought his money to
Eddie Jordan's team but now with Honda and BAR things might be getting
interesting again.

I am a M. Shummacher fan, always have been since he lit it up with
Bennetton, but it can become a bit tedious watching him clean up for
the last 6-7 years I'll agree.  It's like Valentino Rossi in MotoGP,
you just have to tell yourself your witnessing probably the pinnacle of
talent in the sport during your lifetime.  Just my 2 cents.
