The Priaulx Paradox

Double World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx is one of only three motorsport world champions, alongside Fernando Alonso and Sebastien Loeb. Yet despite being labeled 'the Michael Schumacher of WTCC', he does not seem to receive the coverage and fame to match his success. Jonathan Noble talks to the Briton and explains why he may need to look elsewhere to get the acknowledgement he so richly deserves

For a country that struggles sometimes to find its sporting heroes, you would think that being British and winning a world championship would be a passport to widespread recognition.

And if that wasn't the case, then surely winning back-to-back world championships, to make yourself the clear number one in your sport, would at least guarantee some credit for all the effort that you have made. Especially when your highly-respected boss openly goes public and calls you the 'Michael Schumacher' of your field.
