To be honest I didn't want to let facts get in the way of the rhyme. He was in a car 'capable' of winning. I'm just going on what I've seen on youtube due to being 3 at the time.

1991 was the first year I was able to watch most of the race, thanks to Eurosport's really very good TV coverage - and yes, I can see where a "nearly won it" comment would come from, although I also remember thinking that Schumacher needed a few edges rubbed off before he would really show what he could do in a sportscar - perhaps he has now?

Otherwise - new thread - best driver(s) never to have won Le Mans?

If I recall correctly, Schumacher was in the last Mercedes that had a shot at winning before suffering a mechanical failure that needed lengthy repairs. The Mercedes were the favorites that year and I guess you could say that maybe he should have won it had his car not failed him and his teammates, but we can say that about a lot of people. Anyway, 1991 was just a really goofy year with the wacky rules and such. Since this is an off-topic thread to begin with, I guess it is a legitimate question to ask how seriously people take the 1991 race results. IMO, it was a bit of a farce.

Well they did finish that race, but I think that had a lot to do with The Stig, sorry Ben Collins.....

Hmmm. A full fortnight without a post. And not many more in the subforum. Are we all still in that familiar post-Le Mans depression.....?
