Ciro, sorry to interrupt your Latin celebration but aren't you forgetting that new guy (from Hertfordshire - woohoo!) named L. Hamilton, who only happen to be LEADING THE WDC.

But you do realise that Hamilton is mixed-race? Maybe that's where his cool, mistakes-free approach comes from as oppose to that guy who quit F1 to go to race Nascar who was a 100% Latino.
He had so much 'exuberance of feelings' with that steering wheel he spun the car at the Australian GP parade lap last year let's not forget...
Sorry, cheap shot... I know.
But a bullseye nonetheless.

I'm sorry, but I think it has nothing to do with genes and ethnics, it's all about feeling and personality.
I read an article about Gilles Villeneuve in which he described feeling and driving the car "with his ass". He was quite an emotionnal driver while on track, sometimes exuberant in the car, yet when he did wear his helmet off, he had nothing to do with south american type or latin genes...
I think driving is a very particular capacity, and doesn't draw much parallels between one's driving style and his personnality. When driving in a formula one race, heart can beat very fast, the brain is very active, etc.. I mean, you're no longer your old yourself. An exuberant character can focus and become very methodic, while a pragmatic mind can be perverted by anger, desire to win, or fear and so driving in an emotional way.
Just my point. I think you have a tendancy to caricature peoples (I know you're joking most of time, but still...) You want latin people to be like latin people are supposed to be, finish people to be cold like they're supposed to be, etc... You seems very smart so I'm surprised you like those stereotyps. I know some very different individuals here in France, from the coldest to the hottest type of mind, I haven't found such thing as a "french behavior" in 30 years living here. (No, I am not riding a bicycle down the champs-élysées, wearing a beret and holding a "baguette" of bread under my shoulder, with an accordeonish background... sorry if I deceived you )
