Not going to order them, but my top 5 would probably include Clark, Fangio, Nuvolari, Prost and Senna.
Time lapse – including fan symbolising the average Ferrari fan
Hmm, that sucks :(
Race weekend compilation – 3:00-3:30 is probably the most interesting bit
Lap 1, from the hairpin – Raikkonen putting a fine move on Nasr:
Shaky view at the hairpin – just after the restart??
Sad news. Of course motor sport is dangerous, all competitors and spectators know this, but it’s still shocking when someone is hurt or even killed during a motor sport event. Of course all my sympathies to victims, family and friends.
I wonder what the consequences of this accident will be. Flugplatz is an infamous point on an already infamous track. I hope they won’t castrate it by adding a Slovakiaring-style chicane or something like that, but rather extend the run-off area or make it a no-spectator area. The Nordschleife is an icon for old school racing, would be a shame if they change the track lay-out.
Never been much of a Red Bull fan either. I never liked how they used all grey areas of the rules to their advantage, while giving other teams a hard time for doing exactly the same thing. I also don’t understand what their marketing side is trying to achieve: Red Bull is supposed to be young, fresh and full of life, but their F1 team has always had such a cold vibe to it.
Their latest developments should be taken with a pinch of salt. Compare it to negotiating at the market: something is originally 50 Pounds/Euros/whatever, but you want to buy it for 40. So what do you do, offer 40? No, you offer 30. I think that’s what Horner’s doing here, saying some extreme stuff, but eventually settling for something less extreme.
However, I think this has given them such a backlash, they really need to start paying attention to their image. If Red Bull drops down the order even further, I think HQ will be very quick to pull the plug and withdraw from F1 and the junior categories.
Early in the race – great place to watch
