Hi all, This is my first post on the board after being more of a distant observer for a few years.
What has always Irked me a tad is the praise that is always heaped onto the likes of Adrian Newey and Colin Chapman for example, but the man who to me was the most innovative of them all, Rudolf Uhlenhaut, is overlooked completely. I'm not only talking about on these forums, but by the general motorsport media as a whole.
My feelings of admiration and respect towards Uhlenhaut are not only due to his creation of some of the most iconic cars that have ever graced the track, but also because of his habit of taking the cars out onto the track himself to verify the problem himself, and if a solution was found.
After lapping the 'Ring 3 Seconds faster than JM Fangio, he surely must have been a world class driver himself, driving an SLR as a daily company car and all that too.
I would just like your thoughts and opinions of the man himself, which of all the models he created you find the most impressive, and why you think that he is often overlooked by the media?
