If you really thought about it, how many modern motorsport competitors would you want to go for a beer with? That question is not 'who do you want to meet?', or answered by recounting a list of people you already know or consider friends.
But think about what you know about riders or drivers - their professional persona, anyway - through television broadcasts, social media and the prism of the media. Now who do you reckon would be good value for a quick pint after work, to maybe watch some sport or just generally have a chat about life? If I'm being honest, overlooking people I have dealt with, I don't know that my list is a massively long one.
The longer we go on, the more it feels like the dudes are disappearing. Public personas are becoming increasingly homogenised and interchangeable, like they have all fallen off the same production line. At least until you get to someone like MotoGP's newest winner, Cal Crutchlow.
