    Car Specs:

    powerful engine with evocative exhaust note
    high levels of mechanical grip to ensure maximum overtaking and fierce driver competition
    minimum driver aids
    maximum sideprod protection
    low downforce aerodynamic package
    extra-wide driver area for fatter older drivers (may not be true)

    :D

    Seriously can Mansell even squeeze into a car anymore. Last time he returned they had to alter the car to get his chubby frame in (or am I remembering it all wrong?)

    Wow! This is the first I'd heard of this GPMasters series. I'll definitely be tuning in for it. I couldn't see a race calendar on the website can anyone point me in the right direction and does anyone know if it's to be broadcast on TV etc?

    McLaren '95 ;)

    It's not that he's chubby as such, it's that he's really broad.. always been a problem for Mr M ;)

    That said, he's still pretty lean though... he raced at the DTM Masters the other month, and he had no problem squeezing into the Jordan F1 car for the London Parade either. :D


    Rumour has it that the GP Masters will replace the Porsche SuperCup races at F1 events next season. ;)

    Sweet, especially considering I wasn't following F1 when he raced...

    Is he the last UK driver to have won the title?

    No, Damon Hill won the championship in 1996. Not sure when the next British driver is going to win though... :(

    One reason - Kimi.

    So true. I've not been able to follow it much this year - been galavanting off around the world - but back next week so I'll be able to pick up the end of the championship. Button was nowhere this year, right?

    For years I was backing whinger Coulthard, but I had to give up hope in the end. Schumey was simply the MUCH better driver...

    He must be quite old by now.. i'm surprised if he could ever compete.

    His last come back didn't do too well.. neither too long.

    Oh please, Moss couldn't beat Phil Hill when they were at their best, so he sure couldn't do it now :p

    And I think Sheckter is too busy farming to race right now ;)
