10. LOL! Mansell came over here and became a whining,
prestentious primadonna. Well, perhaps he was one in Europe before he came to Indy Cars, i dont know, but he was teamed with Mario and the stories through the paddock were that all he did was complain and bitch. The team grew to hate him and i think that is in part why he didnt stay in Indy car any longer than he did.

Emerson always struck me as the perfect gentleman. I met and conversed with him many times (I worked in the biz from '89 through '96 - held a hard-card annual credential) at races as well as test sessions. He was always cool but, i agree with you, analytical and precise. When he tagged wheels with Al Jr at Indy in '89 with only a couple laps to go, he almost lost it too. The car control at those speeds was phenominal.

Gilles Villenueve seems to have been the same type of driver.

And Senna. Well, what can you say? He is missed, no doubt.
