Aeschylus. Know him? Seems he knows - or knew - Ford's Malcolm Wilson. Even though he was born 2500 years before the World Rally Championship's longest-serving team principal.
Aeschylus must have been familiar with Wilson's work. One line from Agamemnon - one of his (Aeschylus's, not Malcolm's) livelier productions, centred on a murderously feisty wife looking to exact revenge for all manner of foul play - highlights the familiarity.
'It is the nature of mortals, to kick a man when he is down.'
That line might have been delivered for the first time in around 450BC but, for Wilson, it was never truer than last week.
