Ok...I've kept quiet on this so far, but now I feel the need to speak up.
Ford tried to buy Ferrari and at the last minute Enzo said no. That upset Ford. He thought, what better way to get back at them then to beat them at their own game. Le Mans was their pride and game, so...they entered Le Mans. Ford did not win their first few tries, but they kept working on their cars and then they won. Fair and square. Ford did what it set out to do.
Ferrari did not win as much as they do now in their first races, but they worked and worked and now they have a car which is what they want and can win consistently with.
McLaren has a car which they have been working on and perfecting and are trying to beat Ferrari with. They are doing a good job too. From what I saw these last two races, that car was constantly in Schumacher's mirror. (at least until the straight's :wink: )
Competition is the name of the game. Trying to better the rest of the field is the goal. That goes for any racing or any competitive sport. Money and fame are just by products of this. Whoever takes the podium away from Ferrari (if they can now :green: ) will create another chapter in the racing history books just as Ford did with the GT40.
And, to comment on your "You all must think I hate them but it's not tru."...since you registered here, I recall several posts in which you have bashed Ford for any number of reasons. One of them being that the car caused a wreck. How can a car be the cause of a wreck? But that's sidetracking. So, yes, the way you come across to me through your own posts is that you are very much against Ford.
If any of this offends you, I do appologize, but these are my observations.
Do you think God stays in Heaven because she is afraid of what she sees down here?
