Sport is all about winning and losing. We regularly see the winners on TV because it is a meritocracy of getting first over the line. That's why there are world champions; they scored more points than the next bloke.
Sometimes someone wins a race out of nowhere and never wins another. Alberto Puig at Jerez in 1995, Simon Crafar at Donington 1998, Regis Laconi at Valencia 1999, all shining examples of victories that everyone celebrated, happy that the guy had finally won.
So what goes wrong when people win fair and square through hard graft after being nowhere for years, and people don't like it? It's just like what Sete Gibernau did at Welkom in 2003. There was not a dry eye in the house that day, following the death of his team-mate Daijiro Kato just days earlier.
I cannot understand about the current 'it's not fair on Michelin because Bridgestone have dominated this year's championship' discussion that has enveloped many in the paddock.
