But it's such a great picture, it doesn't do any harm to see it multiple times!I chose the '93 Senna at Monaco pic as my new wallpaper (after a quick edit).
Joco + Vikirad, do we really need the same pic quoted twice? It's massive enough without me having to scroll for several minutes to get to the bottom of the page
It only broke Ferrari domination in collaboration with this thing...It was also probably the best. It was much like concept. Because of it, McLaren finally broke Ferrari domination. It is a great looking thing, way ahead of it's time...
Not strictly true, Martin Whitmarsh acknowledged that most of the components that went into the MP4-19 were directly lifted off the 18A. So it did race, although as we remember, it happened to be one of the worst cars ever designed. It was just way ahead of its time, although it did spawn the moderately successful 19B which evolved into the 20, and so on.Probably one of the most mysterious F1 cars in recent years... maybe due to the fact that it never actually turned a racing wheel.
Actually, during the turbo era, huge oil fires were fairly common.
How can anyone drive with the car burning up????
Well I know that. I just wonder how they had the guts to drive around with the cars on fire.Actually, during the turbo era, huge oil fires were fairly common.
Two that really come to mind are Michele Alboreto somewhere (I want to say Nurburging -- the first race on the new track) being so upset with yet another mechanical failure that he drove the burning car back to the pits -- and it was so hot he had unbuckled as he was rolling down the pit lane and standing up in the cockpit. There was also Marc Surer at Brands Hatch who became the owner of a Brabham-BMW CarBQ.
