When formula one was in Indy (which was a disaster after the tire incident) I had the pleasure of getting one of the garages...unbelievable! The technology, the cleanliness, and methodical system they have implemented. Awesome to see and hear

The new stuff is cool, but the older cars were def. insanity! Crazy HP, manual shift, no nannies...

Todays cars are amazing... yesteryears drivers were amazing... have you seen the Senna bio? It's available on Netflix
