in Italy, motorsport has two myths:Tazio Nuvolari ad Gilles Villeneuve. Both lightyears distant from the likes of Fangio or Schumacher. There is some sort of resemblance with the fascination that Ciro wanted to refer to, in my opinion.I understand it very well when he talks about the song.The same song as the "violinist Jones",perhaps.
And, after all, is there anyone who loves motorsport and hasn't ever been fascinated in the same sense by, say, Portago? And do we Judge Portago or Eddie Nelson on their playboy lives? No. We simply feel we would have loved to have our share of that golden age of racing.

That must be *real* annoying for those sitting on the internet stone-cold sober, straight-edge, and utterly anonymous. History remembers those that take life by the scruff of the neck, those too parsimonious and timid are rightfully forgotten.

Oh, and whilst the bright lights make history, it's the "stone-cold sober, straight-edge, and utterly anonymous" people who write about it...

Apart from Hamilton, of course, with his tire spinning and whatnot.
