It’s a lazy Sunday evening and quite frankly I’m sick of waiting for Spa so thought we could reminisce about lovely/inspirational F1 stories.
Are there any stories, cases, quotes that warm your heart? :P
Lauda likes to have his say but I’ll always respect his absolute bravery after the Nurburgring. He’s a hero just for that.
Nannini won my heart in much the same way. I’m glad he got to win in F1 before his accident though.
I liked how after Minardi’s 5th in Aus 2002 all the teams in F1 sent champagne straight to the team to celebrate. That was sweet.
My favourite Massa has been caught up in a rather good tale. Lost out in 08 in the most dramatic style possible, came back and showed his worth in a dog of a car to be nearly killed and then came back after having a son and hasn’t done dreadfully. Then there was Germany…
Seein a Toro Rosso win and a FI pole were other big moments.
One of my favourite ever quotes was from Alain saying that Gilles was the last of the great racers and that they were now all professionals.
So are there any stories or quotes that have stuck with you? Any huge achievements or small victories? Maybe just small stories or moments that make the sport seem more human.
