Who do you miss from F1?

NOT COUNTING DRIVERS! - Teams and F1 'people' only.

Myself I miss:-

Murray Walker - a true legend and totally passionate fan.
Jo Ramirez - another total legend of F1 and super nice guy. (What I'd pay for a chat with him!)
Ron Dennis - No really I do. Ronspeak irked me a lot but I like him.
Ned Flanders (oops.. I mean Dr Mario Theissen) He was simply such a cool guy.

All of the petrol head team leaders, of the lot only Frank and Luca remain.
Newey could have been this generation's Chapman, but he seems to be content with just being Super-Enginner.

I miss Spyker. There was something in that team that made me support them in 2007 and I was over the moon when they had scored their first F1 point.

Since then I lack my "second choice" team (after Williams) to support.

If Newey was around in the 70s, then maybe. Rules are too tight to do some of the revolutionary things Chapman and Lotus did.

I'm definitely not missing Flavio, Ron or even Paul Stoddart - F1 is a lot better without them!

I do kinda miss Honda BTW.

Yup. Roger is a baller and could hold his own against of the sharks of F1 in his day.
I think he'd rather be a large fish in a smaller pond though.
Donohue should've been Americas next GP champion.

Ensign, Theodore, Osella. The spear-carriers for whom a point was like a world title. Yet who were around for years.

Colin Chapman and Gordon Murray. Always coming up with something interesting.

Ken Tyrrell. A reminder that once upon a time you could build a world champion in a woodshed.
