  1. Tell me, why are the great people of Great Britain suffering through James Allen when we have gems like Sir Jackie still around?

    I remember watching him when I was a kid doing commentary the Indy 500 and other motorsports events on ABC. Loved every second of it.

    A few years ago on SPEED, he and David Hobbs did commentary of Jackie’ final win, the 1973 German Grand Prix. I recently found it on YouTube and probably have watched it 20-30 times.

    Very, very interesting video. The first and more important thing, very amazing for me it´s that i could understood it completely, quite a challenge for me ;)

    It seems he knows very well what is he talking about, it is clear that he has to be blamed for the some of the success of stewart team, He does not only know, but seems to have heard a lot from nowadays formula 1. I think is a pity no team is having his services, he could do a great job helping noob drivers, right know i´m thinking lewis hamilton could take a break for this video.
    And also very interesting the nurburgring comments

    JYS is a legend! And a very articulate legend at that. I’ve yet to read his autobiography – and I have been dying to get my hands on it since it came out. He brought out a book on ‘Principles of Performance Driving’ years and years ago, in the 80s I think – if you enjoyed this video, you’ll love that book.

    I’m starting to see some realyy good F1 videos like this come from the teams and their sponsors. I thought Williams’ one on their old cars the other week was good too.

  6. I am not even going to watch it, cant stand J Stewart, he seems to need to give an opinion on everything….holier than now he is

    JYS has Senna’s ability to mesmerise. He explains things in a way that are totally absorbing to those who are well informed but understandable to those who are not.

    Steven Roy…you hit the nail right on the head,Senna’s same style of speaking,he knows what he is talking about and draws you in and explains in more simple terms without talking down to people,he truly loves this sport and wants everyone to understand why they should too.

    I need a guitar teacher with that kind of passion.
