Isn't working for me but does for some friends. Hopefully you can watch
It worked for me, thanks! I was only able to see Schu beat Button and Bourdais in the Champion of Champions. Great final between Ekstrom and Schu! It was cool seeing Schu drive the buggy. Ekstrom was pretty untouchable in that Solutions car, while Schu was untouchable in the buggy.
Why did they use the Solutions F car for the tie-break? I thought they'd use a third car, like the Focus Rally car or the Astons. Ekstrom still would likely have won though.
I caught the Michele Mouton interview as well. She is such a classy lady, one that young girl-racers should emulate. It's ridiculous that barely-accomplished girls like Danica Patrick and Michelle Wie are somehow considered the great role models for women breaking into male-dominated sports.
Ekström won for the second year in a row!
As you said I'm also surprised to why they used the Solution F cars in the tie-break as well. But no matter what they used apart from the buggy, Ekström still probobly would have won.
I really hope Ekström gets an F1 offer soon!
He won't get any F1 offer.
^^ I second that. I don't think he'll be any F1 overtures. However, Heikki did get some interest after he beat Schu at the Race of Champions in 2004 or 2005. If I'm not mistaken, Heikki was already involved in open-wheel racing at the time.
I doubt he'll get any offers as well. He's taken a different path, he's never even raced karts. But I hope he gets an offer. I'd love to see a Swede in F1.
Really? I didn't know that he's never raced karts. I would've thought he has a t least some karting experience.
Apparently, there were problems with both the Aston Martin and Ford WRC, so neither could have been used for the tiebreaker. It was either the Solution F or the dune buggy. Ekstrom disagreed with using the buggy. I would have liked to see them race the Aston in the finale, but Ekstrom still would have won. Schu is really not that good with the saloon cars.
Interesting that Schu did better than all the other active F1 drivers. He beat Button twice and annihilated Bourdais in the buggy. That I didn't expect. Where was Hamilton?
Mattias Ekström versus Michael Schumacher to determine who is the "champion of champions"
