The 1971 Ferrari 312B2 of Jacques Ickx aka Jacky Ickx. Pay attention how close the driver is sitting close to the engine, and how squeezed he is at his shoulders. Not much protection if the car was hit from any angle basically.

You needed to be crazy to drive those cars during these years. No wonder so many drivers were killed in the early years of Formula 1.

Today ,cars are much safer and reliable. Faulty material can be detected often before an incident happen.

The latest GP in Valencia was the perfect exemple. Mark Webber survived easily a bad accident.


Note Jacky's daughter , Vanina is also a racer (^_^)

A little wink to Belgium today as the Tour de France visited Antwerpen, Bruxelles, Spa, and many localities recently.

Hi Rabert
For me it is also nicely then again here to see you. I can see that you changed interests (races) and new camera.
I am trying continuously to do something new and to go ahead. I have many ideas and little time.

Salut Robert,

Joli filé. J'aurais aimé en faire autant samedi, mais nous n'avions pas un bon point de vue pour cela. Belle netteté, exposition juste, cadrage serré qui dirige toute l'attention sur le pilote tout en l'identifiant. Il t'aurait fally un "step" de 2 pieds pour éviter le haut de la clotûre, mais celle-ci n'est pas vraiment dérangeante dans l'image. Beau travail, compliments.
