To be fair though, Goncalves isn't racing Coma for 1st place. Still...man, that guy just fell a few notches in my book.

WAIVER: Not trying to start a flame war. Just stating my opinion.

I have been watching Formula 1 for a long time (circa 85) and I can honestly say the majority of word champions had in common the fact they were bastards, a word used by a few of them to describe what it takes to make it.

I am NOT saying that's what it takes, I wouldn't know, but from watching the races over the years, it certainly looks that way. So maybe it's the same here. I don't condone it, but perhaps, at that level, you need to be absolutely ruthless to win.

Go ned!!

No surprise that Ned continues to impress all of us with his riding skills, preparation, strategy, mental toughness and stamina. His outlook on this whole experience is hugely inspiring to say the least. To boot, it sounds like he is enjoying the hell out of the whole deal which is awesome!

Go Ned!!!!
