He was a big part of the reason why I wanted to do what I do now. He took his small team from Texas and dominated the World GT and Sports car scenes.
But, everyone has to go at some point I guess and he has the honour of being remembered as one of the sport’s greatest.
By the time Jaime Alguersuari was 20 he’d already won British F3 and was driving for Toro Rosso.
By the time Paul di Resta was 20 he’d already beaten Vettel in Euro F3 and was driving for Mercedes in DTM.
By the time Jenson Button was 20 he’d already tested for McLaren and was driving for Williams.
By the time Sebastian Vettel was 20 he’d already scored World Championship points for BMW and was driving for Toro Rosso.
…I guess it’s time for me to give up on becoming an F1 driver now?
By the time a mate of mine turns 20 he will have been flying 737s for two months.
This isn’t helping me, now I’m gonna be checking even more to see if anyone else is sending me indirect messages!
