Jos was very lucky by the outstanding response of the pit crew with fire extinguishers .
One of the pit crew was also in flames..

My UKM5 and MBelgium friends -
Wowie!!!!

Now that's a way to take care of your driver....but how can you give your driver a glass of champagne kin 1.8 seconds?? Perhaps the drink button on the steering wheel can dispense Martinis??

Don't think they use champers glasses just a funnel paper cup, lots of time to sup up, took about couple minutes for tyres /fuel from canisters in those days

My UKM5 and MBelgium friends -
My GP Racing magazine (UK publication that just changed their name from F1 Racing) has a great article on Zandvoort with pics of the old track and new track - some great narrative about its glory days and how it will be a great track with its latest upgrades!

Can't wait to see the banked turn that leads to the front straight....the article states the speed coming off the banking will make a perfect place to slipstream and pass on the front straight!

I have a few of the old magazines when it was called F1 Racing,very informative and more 'serious F1 fan orientated' but I won't buy any of the new GP Racing ones until the racing gets underway. *Good choice and better than the flimsy expensive Autosport.
