Newey Vs Byrne

I know the thread is about Newey and Byrne, but there have been a few guys in the genius class along the way as well.

If i could choose both of them at their best i would go with Byrne, if at current form then Newey as he is far more motivated atm i believe.

Although I think that Newey is probably more talented, he also falls into the "delicate genius" category, making him far more tempermental and succeptible to fall off his game when disturbed by his environment. Byrne on the other hand seems to be made of harder stuff, and as a result, I would probably have taken him over Newey in their heyday.

As it stands, both are entering the twilights of their carreers, and so if I were a Team Principle, I'd probably look at Mike Gascoyne over both of these guys - he's proven himself a very capable designer (consider the advancements at Renault and now Toyota), and has many more years left in him yet.
