This is the footage of Mansell and Senna at Monza. It’s not the most spectacular move, but it is a very good demonstration of what F1 should be all about.
It’s become an internet ‘classic’ (read: we’ve all seen it a million times) but somehow it doesn’t get any less spectacular.
“The team manager had a heart attack at this footage. Not to hard to see why.” – Scott Newman
One of the finest laps ever completed – the move around the outside of the Craner curves beggars belief. He then went on to lap everyone bar Damon Hill.
One of the most spectacular (and risky) overtakes in F1 – Hakkinen and Schumacher at Spa.
Every year the F1 guys go out for their first laps, there’s the inevitable pang of jealousy… then you watch a video like this and realise that you’re a talentless wuss!
“Derek Bell takes his old company car on a 6 minute 41 second lap of the Nurburgring – awesome driving and some great commentary as the Porsche 956 puts 650bhp to work around the ‘ring!” – Stig
“Porsche 956. Mulsanne Straight. 246mph. Probably the best in-car footage I’ve ever seen.” – mark34bn
Sebring plays host to the first major endurance classic of the year – the Sebring 12-hours – with Audi fielding its all-new R15 LMP1 cars, and we thought you might like the opportunity to follow the action with them here on DR.
“No collection of motoring videos is complete without this – Andy Wallace, maxing the McLaren F1” – Marty
“Lewis Hamilton karting, in extremely wet conditions. This is where the roots of Silverstone 2008 were sown” – Marty.
We’d quite like this in the DR HQ reception, or perhaps in Dickie’s 106 Rallye..
