    Iconic. Awesome.

    Imagine if they tried that these days, sigh…

    One of, if not the most fantastic picture in formula one history. You feel elation (for Mansell), mirth (for the hilarity of the situation – remember senna batting away the official who tried to stop him?), and grief (what a man we lost at Imola 94) all at once.

    Most of all, its just plain funny. :)
