... they showed a classic race from Spa in 2000 (can you believe that's a classic now, neither can I) on the screens last night. It was quite impressive to see how competitive Gene's car was. He managed to keep up with Hakkinen, who admittedly had lapped him, for quite a few laps. Came in 14th ahead of Mazzacane and both Arrows. Those were the days...
A few days ago I saw again Monza 1989 on ClassicF1, saw again Senna, Prost, Mansell, Berger, Warwick, Alboreto, Patrese, Boutsen, Piquet, Cheever, Nannini, Johansson, Arnoux, Alesi at the peak of their youth and couldn't really believe a quarter of a century has gone by!!!!
According to various dictionary resources:
Veteran - Prior to 1919
Vintage - 1919 - 1930
Classic - More than 25 years
So classic spans a period of 59 years, but sadly the 2000 Formula One Grand Prix is not one.
But to add to the great moments (and not forgetting all that went before) what about Webber all over the back of Raikonnen in the Sauber in Spain (I think)in 2001 or 2002? Raikonnen was coming up with all sorts of excuses. That was the year that Webber finished 11th a number times.
