Yikes. I had forgotten about that.
It's why I never bought into the "Mark Webber is unlucky" meme. Sure, he got hit by a car at his own charity bike race. But Webber walked away in '99. That's insane.
Poor bastards. Withdrew their name, then Brawn went on to dominate that year.
They spent a shit load of money to suck. IIRC, over a fucking billion dollars in the project's life time. Tumbled down the ranks the whole time. Google says they spent at least $400,000,000 in 2008. Only came in 5th.
But I mean they're so far removed from "cars" at this point that I have a real hard time caring.
I used to wake up at 3am to watch F1.
Now I might be bothered to watch the 24 hours. This year, all I've done is watch the live timing updates from Indy. Crapped out on even that when Fernando did likewise.
Just picked a PS3, though. You better believe I'm driving a VW Bus around the Ring later tonight.
