From journalists from his day, Piquet snr was known to be a 'ch..ky b....r. In a 1981 interview with a well-known magazine, Nelson said: "If Reutemann was not so cautious and would take more chances he would do much better". Reutemann was then into his tenth season. A few years on, from 1987, and who seemed to be cautious and avoiding risks?

:thumbup: Of all the modern times drivers (from 1975 onward), Reutemann seems to be the one that deserved the title most. Sadly things were not going his side, tough he was agonizingly close to WDC in 1981, and may I say 1982, was it not for the Falkland war.

Thank you for noting that, Lieutenant. All deaths on track are ghastly, of course, but this was especially horrible, given the circumstances in Imola which undoubtedly played their part in it. What a mega talent.

Sympathy too, for Jochen Mass, tangled up in the tragedy.
