While I am first and foremost a Ferrari fan, you have to tip your hat to the performance that Mclaren have produced over the past few seasons. While Hakkinen and Coulthard are quality drivers, they have the huge advantage of knowing that they start every weekend with the best machinery under them. While Ferrari tweak their car, Jordan are brilliant one week, awful the next, and the chasing pack seek to just try and get close, Mclaren are always there or ther abouts.
The job that Ron Dennis has done over the years proves his ability, even if he is the most consistently grumpy man on the scene.
Surely the time will come, when Schumacher puts aside the romantic idea of getting a Ferrari to win, takes the pay cut and goes to win four straight titles at McLaren before he retires...and as I said I'm a Ferrari fan.
