So, yesterday I was making a cargo delivery from Stuttgart to Verona in ETS2 and I was listening to BBC Live Radio they were talking about the upcoming British GP and there were some lovely interviews, in particular to sir Stirling Moss. But one caught my attention. Four journalists (sorry but I cannot remember their journals, I remember only that one of them was from the Sun) were asked which was the greatest english driver in F1 history. One vote to sir Jackie Stewart, two for Nigel Mansell and one to another driver I have never heard before in my life and I fear the journalist was only pretending to be a dandy by making his name.
And I asked myself: what of Moss? What of Graham Hill? What of Jim Clark? What of John Surtees? Were they not greater than Stewart and Mansell?
My guess it's that nowadays most of the people do not really know about F1 and it's history, they learned and saw something only frome the nineties on and they are too lazy to watch at the past.
Sports' journalists then, from all sports, are always the worst. It seems like they choose people which know the less of the sport and let them talk\write and judge publicly about it.
What are your thoughts?

I did a reboot hoping for the best, but it didn't help. I went to bed thinking my pedals were porked, and it was going to cost me money, as I was out of warranty. I boot up this morning, and check the throttle, and it's working perfect.
What happened? Anybody have that happen before?
I wish I understood Italian !
I use Flight Simulator X a lot, when I'm not GPL'ing and one of the great things an add-on Payware vendor has come up with is a persistent aircraft.
That means that the when you start FSX the aircraft is in the same state you left it last flight, including fuel and oil levels and levels of engine and component wear. The aircraft even degrades over time especially if you don't use it and the virtual mechanic tells you off! It really adds a new level of experience to the sim, that of ownership.
If it can be added to the core functionality of FSX, I wonder if it's possible to do the same in GPL?
Would be great having to look after your car/s across the season or multiple races. Would make me more careful in how I treat the engine, tyres etc during races. A virtual mechanic would also be great.
Any thoughts, or has this been discussed before?
