Colin McRae - WRC's Jean Alesi?

I know you can't really compare F1 and rally drivers, but I've noticed that Colin McRae and Jean Alesi both have all out attacking driving styles, they both have the occasional big accident, and they even both through the odd tantrum, although Colin's are not as extreme as Jean's. What do you think?

Nah. While it's not really a fair or favorable comparison, Alesi and his countryman Delacour are the closest parralels I can think of.

Yep, I saw an old footage when Delacour and Panizzi were at each other's throats a few years back at Peugeot.

That was when Panizzi was so fast through the stages that Delecour was convinced that Gilles had done some illegal reccies / practice. Panizzi's performance in recent rallies shows that it could well be just talent.

Delacours outburst on the Rally GB, when he had a go at his co-driver for them crashing. I know I have a go at Nicky Grist everytime I crash on Colin Mcrea rally, because it can't be my fault!!!!!!

I take it you're playing Colin McRae Rally 2?

No, Colin McRae isn't the Jean Alesi of Rally. He is the Pedro Diniz of Rally.

Liz, that is CRUEL!!!

At least Colin's never had his family buy a 40% stake in a team to get him a ride!

McRae has never chased anyone through the forest shouting "I WEEL KEEL YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!" which I saw Alesi chase Trulli through the infield at Montreal shouting that once ... it is true that McRae never had to buy a ride but I am sure if his name were not so well known -- wait, his brother is kind of relegated now, isn't he?

No, I think it's true. McRae = Diniz.

Must disagree. McRae is a former World Champion has won 25 WRC events and been a competitor for the Championship for a number of years now. As for Snr Diniz, unless my recollection is wrong he's never troubled the title race in F1, let alone won anything.

Exactly, McRae has won more World Championship rallies than anyone.

Ah Another Forum another McRae basher.
Yes McRae has had spectacular crashes but who hasn't in rallying ? Even Gronholm managed one last year.

The comparison with Delacour is more accurate for sure. Spectacular, fiery and never quite achived his potential. It's almost spot on.

I can't believe that rally folk are using F1 comparisons. Shame on you!
As for comparing C.McRae to a F1 no hoper.... do you know anything about rallying at all?
