And YOU have?
He always talks to the reporters, even after screwing up or blowing up or wrecking out. Always. He took losing the championship like a MAN. He never said anything but what you'd expect to hear from a good sport- something that's sadly missing from many of the privileged, spoiled "elitists" out there nowadays.
His fellow competitors (w/a few exceptions- there are ALWAYS rivalries) have nothing but good things to say about him- even drivers of cars other than Fords.
Now, I've never spent time w/him- he's not a friend, or even an acquaintance. But I am willing to bet YOU haven't spent any time w/him, either, and he's no friend or acquaintance of yours.
