Quote of the day

Don't put the power on until you know you never have to take it off.
Sir Jackie Stewart on Top Gear


Yery profound quote. I guess Sir Jackie Stewart is a very canny person.

Ja mei, wer meint Kurven mit dem Gaspedal fahren zu müssen :-D

Für Freunde des brit. Humors kann ich auch die Wohnzimmerepisode empfehlen. Da pimpen die eine alte S-Klasse mit einer halben Tonne Zement, Bodenfliesen und einem, jawohl! Bullerofen.

I loved this episode. This is a 66-year old man, long retired, knocking 20 seconds off a lap time.

Jackie Stewart, like most of his generation, were the Michael Shumakers of their time. They all looked death in the face in a weekly basis.. Modern F1 is kinda antiseptic (but no less chance of death, lets face it..)

Heros. The lot of them...

Long may his breeks reek....
