This is an example of why I think Dr. Mario Theissen is the new king of the paddock.I have a tremendous amount of respect for this man and what he has achieved.Â It’s all well and good to be an engine supplier in F1 but to buy a team and win a race in just two years is nothing short of fabulous!Â He has to be admired and if I were Ron or Stephano; I might actually be very wary of this man.
BMW have done an outstanding job and I am delighted with their recent win and performance.Â I hope they can take the title this year but as it stands, I know of two other teams that are equally dedicated and blindingly fast.Â It is what F1 is all about and should make for a great show.Â I think Dr. Theissen is stronger on many fronts than his competitors and BMW’s performance is a testament to not only that but to the entire BMW family for their hard work and dedication to the sport.Â This from Autosport:
