    I am SO SICK of hearing about Ayrton Senna

    One last point about the challenge of Schumacher to Senna.

    In the year that Senna was killed, Schumacher was driving a Bennetton with a Ford engine.

    Yeah that's right a Ford engine. And we are not talking Cosworth. I am not having a pop at Ford here, it is just that the Ford F1 engine at that time gave far less hp than the Renault.

    Senna's car had the Renault engine. Senna is on record wondering how Schumacher was able to do it.

    This was the era when traction control was originally banned.

    It was subsequently found that the Benetton car had "hidden" code. The facts are out there for any of you interested in the truth.
