While the weekend had interesting GT and single-seater motor sport to offer in Europe and NASCAR action at the Nashville Superspeedway, it was actually time to remember two drivers that we lost in the past.
The younger ones cannot remember Mike Hailwood in action, as he retired at the end of the 1970s from two successful careers, one on two wheels, one on four wheels. Sadly he died – together with his young daughter – 30 years ago in consequence of a road accident. Yet he was a one of a kind racer, his story sure is worthwhile reading.
Michel Alboreto was a different kind of man and a different kind of driver, the likeable Italian went on to win races well in to his forties and deserves our admiration the same way. We remember these two great drivers in this issue, besides giving you an insight into Red Bull’s technical advantages – but also short-comings – in Formula 1 and bring you all the racing action of the weekend.
Enjoy the read!
