thanks for clarifying that the 6 wdc's were from superior machinery.
and the 1st was of course for graciously punting another driver of the track.
I think three drivers hold this distinction:
1.) Alain Prost (1989)
2.) Ayrton Senna (1990)
3.) Michael Schumacher (1994)
Michael of course tried one more time (1997) but did not succeed. Thereafter this
form of becoming WDC by punting the competitor off disappeared again from the
sport, and I am grateful as it is not what makes the sport.
Interestingly, Senna and Schumacher are the two who always get accused for it,
while the originator of that art form, Alain Prost, gets away lightly.
Concerning this weekend (2012):
nice that Michael is still there and that Alain is back for the weekend, only Ayrton
is missing from the party - in an age of the Maldonados, Grosjeans and Perez'.
