So Wayne Gardiner,Mick Doohan,Casey Stoner & Chad Reed obviously don't count.



It was Beretta who said that line IIRC, and seeing as he has written a book on Gardner, Doohan & Stoner, i don't think he has forgotten that, he was obviously referring to single seater racing.



It wasn't Beretta that I heard say it.It was sunday nights news in Vic and I think the sports presenters name is Sean Sowbey.

FOOOOOOOOORD !!!

As a kid. I would never have thought the moment Australia finally got an Indycar champ would be so underwhelming. Good on him though. I'm glad of the two that topped the 01 fford standings, that it was Power who's had the successful international career.

I'm confused. The WRC is #1, F1 is #2. How has Ricciardo won the F1 title???

I can't remember it being mentioned on SEN1116. (A 24 hour sports station in Melbourne)

Chad Reed doesn't.

He'd sound more intelligent if he just didn't say anything at all.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWVkAVrOKf4 - Will on Letterman

What an absolute crack up!!
Besides the classic Zanardi interview - no doubt one of the best Letterman Champ interviews of all time! He handled it really well and the crowd seemed to fall for him pretty easily!
Find the vid of his victory celebration speech to, another one good for a laugh.

Tell you what, he gets lots of hate, but not once in my life have I ever NOT enjoyed his humor or rants or tantrums. Go Will!!!

Shame Indy Car is about to have 8 months off holidaying in "OBLIVION"

I agree, I think Will's a pretty likeable character, even though lots of people, even Aussies, don't agree. He reminds me a bit of David Reynolds with his humour. I had a good laugh when he said he thought the world was ending.
