"Riccardo Patrese can ill-afford another season like 1985. His reputation did flourish – but in the wrong direction. There was the usual sprinkling of accusations about his apparent inability to use a rear view mirror, but the Monaco fiasco punted him into the headlines thanks to a piece of thoroughly irresponsible driving. The shame is that Patrese started out with good intentions. He was fit, he qualified well, tried hard, but somehow the year brought very little to highlight his natural talent. With so many young chargers on the grid, Patrese’s time may have passed him by."
