100th Greatest Driver of All Time
Posted 02 March 2008 - 17:32
By placing him as the first name you read, and at the same time the lowest ranking in a distinguished list, Henry marks Redman out as a particularly noteworthy driver for reasons other than F1 success or preposessing talent, as Ensign14 put it (roughly), one whom 'F1 never gave the chance.'
Anyhow, that's my attempt to express the inexpressible, of the near-mystical qualities of Driver #100, and I'd be interested to know which driver the rest of the board thinks is most deserving of such unique recognition.
I'd probably put Hans-Joachim Stuck or Alex Zanardi, myself.

For the mix of mystique, thwarted ability, potential and "if only"ness, Peter Arundell.

From what I have gathered Brian is a great person and a remarkably underrated driver, underrated even by Brian himself....(See Fittipaldi's book with Kirby- "The Art of Motor Racing" or something like that where Gordon interviews Brian and gives a great interview)
