That's my kind of mentality.
Yea no doubt he was a truly special driver, for a swede like myself i´m actually very proud of what he did for our country, we are just 9 million people so per capita we do produce quite a lot of talent.
In comparison there´s like 24 million people in NYC alone.
It´s just that he has that generic Swedish mentality, a bit of a soft ball when things heat up but when it´s time to go fast he was a King.
this soft ball thing is also probably why he got so many friends.
He was probably the easiest guy to get along with back in the day.
Edit: Our Viking days are long gone, back then we would tear up everything, but now we are civilized and if i have to say it myself, probably one of the best countries to live in, in terms of everything.
