The trend in modern media seems to always glorify THIS season and THIS race as always the toughest ever. Until next season...
Certainly it is the objective of the marketing men to make us believe that whatever they are peddaling now is better than anything we have had before. I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's Brazilian GP but couldn't agree with the bald one when he stated that it was the best GP ever. Obviously Eddie Jordan is a lot older than me and it would appear that he has already been through the mummification process but the best GP ever?
I would just point out that the odds are that we are bound to get more winners when there are so many Grand Prix. In 1968 there were 12 GPs with 7 different winners with 5 different teams fielding the winning cars. So if we expand that to 20 GPs then there would have been 11 different winners with 8 different teams providing the cars. Now obviously this statistic is wrong as there probably weren't that number of drivers capable of winning back in '68 but in an age mesmorised by statistics one has to wonder what would have happened in '68 if there had been 20 races.
