Lovely ...

My introductory years to F1 ... :)

I remember Lotus turfed the Renault engine (a masterpeice at the time) for the newer Honda unit later - when the Japanese were at the peek of their Motor Engineering prime ... I have memories of Murray Walker's voice in commentary working up to the threshold of pain ... "Ayrton Senna, spinning ... spinning!!" "... and into the pits comes Alain Prost ... Now his time here will be VERY interesting considering the bungled tyre change of Keke Rosberg earlier ... lets hope McLaren has this sorted out now" ... Nigel Mansell staying out too many laps in his Williams - trying to win the Championship at the Australian GP, when he should have pitted for tyres ... the rears blew in what is now and Iconic piece of racing footage "... and look at that!!! ... that is Nigel Mansell and the car absolutely shattered, he's fighting for control" ... Satoru Nakajima with race cam in the Lotus Honda, showing how spectacular an exploding turbo impeller can be ... I remember thinking that the pit stops were boring until they brought back refuelling ...

Anyway ... Nice work Mark ... I'm REALLY glad you have the old cigarette advertising plastered on there ... like the successor to the 98-T, the 99-T wouldn't be the same without the old Camel logos plastered all over the yellow ...

Rog :)
