In the modern era of Formula One, and sport in general, it is the winning—not the taking part—that counts.
And it is not just winning alone that matters for teams, individuals, manufacturers and constructors—they have to win well, win often and win in the "proper way."
The fashionable way, the groovy way, the right way.
This ever-growing strive for complete, unblemished excellence has allowed a certain snobbery to creep into sporting society, with the rest almost segregated from the very best of the best.
Yet it is clear that there are no accidental wins in F1.
Each victory—whether it is achieved by the might of Ferrari, McLaren or Williams, institutions which have stood the test of time, or the relative squeal of Wolf—is hard-earned and deserved.
