A Dream Team of Champions?

By December 16, 2012

Follow me on:

For the sixth year in a row, this weekend Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel won the Race of Champions nations cup for Germany.  The RoC has the teams driving against each other in various bizarre cars in heats.  Can you imagine that team?  Schumacher with 7 F1 titles and Vettel with 3?   And 18 years difference in age?   It suddenly occurred to me that this would be one driver paring I'd love to have seen - or see next year - at Red Bull!  But I wonder if they would remain such great friends....

I mean, two of the greatest drivers in the world - and if anyone still doubts Vettel, look at his drive at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this year from the back of the grid up; or if anyone doubts Schumacher, there is a story to read on Autosport - if you subscribe - in one of the best analyses I've seen of his two careers in F1, by Pat Symonds, who worked with Schumacher at Benetton.

And then, how can I report on this without saying that in the individual driver part of the competition, the champion is...Romain Grosjean!!!  The so-called first lap nutcase of the 2012 F1 season, according to Mark Webber, of Red Bull.
