Go Nige! So, how does he look out there? Nobody's broadcasting this in the States...

And I'm happy to see Cheever bringing up the rear. Good job, Eddie!

Former Formula 1 world champion Nigel Mansell kept his 100% record in the Grand Prix Masters series by taking pole position for the season opener, which takes place at Qatar on Saturday.

The British racing hero set a lap time nearly nine seconds faster than the Moto GP bikes managed at the same track last month.

It was Mansell

All I know is its good when you immediately know more than half the names and have only been following F1 since '97 :)

Who's the dutch guy with a funny name :eusa_think:

He drove for Brabham and Fondmetal in 1992. Didn't qualify for most of them.

It's good. It gives us perspective...or something...

I think Danner was one of those Sato-kinda guys...broke into F1 and never did anything impressive, then faded away...early 80's I think :eusa_think:

So, where is Prost? I remember reading he declined to participate, but I was never sure of the reason why. He would give Mansell a run for his money, eh?

Thanks for posting the update, monza.
