Q:Hello. I am an old time McLaren fan and I was lucky enough to meet Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme in 1969 and 1968. What do you feel is the one part you are attracted to? One of the elements for me is the beauty and functionality of the older cars. Thanks.
Hello dear Anon. You met Bruce and Denny? How lucky of you! It must have been amazing to have the chance to have a chat with them.
The cars from the 60’s were gorgeous: in years gone by we have never seen such raw beauty again. I personally love the technical challenge now that the sport has embraced a new technology. The cars are difficult to handle and drivers need to take care of tyres, fuel, the strategy… The racing is as good as it’s ever been I think.

How cool are the Danish fans?!
Good news for Formula 1 fans: Bernie Ecclestone has promised he will scrap the standing restarts behind safety car for next year. Hallelujah!
Ecclestone: “There will be no standing start after a safety car phase. What we have seen in Budapest, was good enough.”
Now we only need him to scrap double points as well…
