I'd respect him more if he didn't appear in one of the most annoying TV adverts in the UK that I've seen. That and the fact he was such an irritating teammate he forced Mario Andretti in to retirement. But as a driver, he fully deserved to be called Il Leone. Some exceptional overtaking moves and comeback drives.

Nice video; the flip at 2:05 was definitely not him, though! It was actually Patrese clipping the back of Berger, Estoril 1992 I think?

Also, while I respect what he's achieved on the track, he seems to have been quite an insufferable character back in his day. This is also the man who blew it on the final lap of Montreal '91, throwing away a certain victory as he let his engine revs drop too low while waving to the crowd... says a lot about his ego.
