Since the 1st World Chanpionship in 1950, Formula 1 has seen some of sports greatest rivalries. From the extroadinary relationship of the veteran Fangio and the young Moss to the gentlemanly rivalry between Clark and Hill, friendship and respect between Stewart and Rindt to the bitter feud between teammates Villenueve and Pironi: The rivalry and respect between Prost and Lauda and the intrigue, personal jealousy and paranoia between William's team mates Mansell and Piquet ; the ferocious clashes between Prost and Senna: and the contemporary feud between Schumacher and Villeneuve that ended the 1997 Championship so dramatically.
