HE HAS SUCH TALENT, NOT MATCHED IN HISTORY AND FUN TO WATCH IN THE DRY OR IN THE WET. IT WOULD BE TRAGGIC IF SOMETHING WERE TO HAPPEN INVOLVING A CRASH. THREE YEARS IS A LONG TIME AND AT THE END OF HIS LAST RIDE HE WAS SLOWING SOMEWHAT AS ALONSO WALKED AWAY.

Barker, his last ride was an awesome show of driving skill, Brazil 2006, where he ended up last due to a puncture, when he rejoined in last place he was a few seconds ahead of race leader Massa. Over the rest of the race he passed 15 drivers to finish in 4th place, along the way making up more than 60 seconds on leader Massa. I doubt he was as you put it "slowing somewhat". Keep in mind to that the 2006 season looked to be in Alonso's back pocket after the first nine races, but Schumie fought back and really took it to the wire.

But you are right, he has amazing talent, and is fun to watch. I am loooking forward to it for sure. keep in mind too that during the last race in Brazil, Michael's last, over 145 million fans tuned in to watch.
