What is this thing he seems to have for colliding with South American-driven BMWs in the starts of races? ;)
Someone on the E46 M3 board answered, "Spoonface the Puntmeister." LOL.
None other than current the current World Champion, Michael Schmuacher.
a very bored Nicholas
In the 1990 DTM season, M3 driver Johnny Cecotto was leading the Championship going into the last race at Hockenheim. In the first corner of the race, a junior Mercedes driver, who qualified some distance back from where Cecotto was, braked WAY too late, cut across the grass, and punted Cecotto out of the race. Cecotto had to start from the back in the spare car and, as a result, lost the Championship to Hans Stuck in the Audi V-8.
Question: Who was this junior Mercedes driver? (scroll down for a hint)
*Hint: He has a recent history of colliding with South American BMW drivers at the starts of races.
