F1 back in the days when men were men.

June 23, 2008

Enough of the pottering about with hi-tech gadgets and shaving thousandths of a second off your lap time. Back in the day when men were men, and their sideburns weighed about half of their entire body-weight, we saw some far more exciting and potentially dangerous racing.
Like this clip of Eliseo Salazar (a Chilean) and Nelson Piquet (a Brazilian). Nowadays F1 drivers are supercool, they don’t get their feathers ruffled even when they have high-speed impacts. They just trot back to the pits and check their telemetry. But not here.

Here we see what a passion for racing really means.
When you think the other driver’s at fault, don’t bother with a call to specialist accident lawyers, just deck him.
Nicely handled gents.
The Murray Walker commentary is just an added bonus.
