todd,

Yes, see "mojo" posts in the archives. Winning races blurrs the reality of the past. Enzo Ferrari was probally sent to an early grave in '98 because the team couldn't keep parts from falling off their F1 cars, and Michael couldn't finish a race. But a few years, and a bunch of world championships later, all is forgiven!
