SAO PAOLO's traffic came to a halt yesterday as thousands of Brazilians came on to the streets to grieve as the coffin carrying Ayrton Senna came home.

Sir: When will Derick Allsop learn that our admiration for Nigel Mansell as a driver is rightly founded on a true appreciation of the quality of his rivals and not by recycling long-exploded smears at their expense?

Since the contrary view of John Surtees is not good enough for him, let me remind him of what James Hunt wrote in the Independent last year:
Motor Racing: Williams' sponsor calls for new talks: Frank Williams gives his team's version of a parting of the ways as the world champion puts his viewpoint and Ayrton Senna waits in the wings

THE controversy over Nigel Mansell's departure from the Williams Formula One team took a few new turns last night after Labatt's, one of the team's sponsors, urged the two parties to re-open negotiations.
