Will he go on to race until the 21st Century? And win another two Championships? Will he start his own team and take his son Bruno under his direct tutelage and actually be in Vettel's level today? Will he have went back to McLaren? What would the rest of the field look like? Will I be able to have what he's holding with his hand? Who made that model, even? Who else makes 1:64 models of F1 cars past and present? And are they NP?

And, most especially, who would have died if he didn't? Prost? Alesi? Hill? Or was Ratzenberger enough of a big blow to the era's safety regs and overall sport?
