We all know the story of WTCC driver Alessandro Zanardi crashing heavily in 2001, losing both his legs in that tragic accident at the Lausitzring.

Ever since that day he hasn't lost his (racing) spirit and always remained positive. In my opinion he is the same icon for handicapped people as Lance Armstrong is for cancer patients.

RTL GP just showed a short reportage on TV about Zanardi's project "Bimbingamba" where he and his team of specialits put all their energy in helping the less fortunate: handicapped children from Italy and abroad. They support and train those children how to cope with their handicap, and provide them prothesis to improve their situation a little.

He is a legendary driver in my opinion. Watched the WTCC Imola weekend with him at Eurosport. He has full of life energy and he never stops smiling. Fantastic guy!

got to be Loeb, i'd love to see Latavla or Hirv do it but if Loeb doesn't make any mistakes the title is already his

Kimi :) or maybe not yet...

I hope it's Hirvonen or Latvala but it is very hard to stop Loeb winning.

Hopefully Latvala finally stops crashing his car and collects lots of points for Ford. He is fast and once he learns how to stay on road he can beat anyone.

I don't think Kimi can do it, especially in his first season. I doubt that he'd place higher than Solberg.

Hirvonen was so damn close last season and he's the only one with a chance against Seb.

Kimi has not experience, and in his previous rallies did not finished because driving mistakes.

Don't get me wrong, he has the talent to win by far, but the experience is very important also...

Shame really... I liked Imola. Having both tracks on the calendar would have been nice, but I guess you can't have everything... :(

If they want a track in Brazil, I would have thought that the first choice would be Interlagos...

If only Istanbul Park could attract more spectators.... That's a great track :(

Nurburgring and Imola are missing :(
