Nice interview. I've always liked Jackie. I wonder if he sees a bit of himself in Jensen?

Thanks for the post.

I watched him race at the old (incl. Northern Loop) Nuerburgring, Zolder (Belgium), and Zandvoort (the old Dutch GP), and his precision was truly amazing.
You could watch him go through one corner, and hit the same markers within a few inches every time.

If you never watched it, Polanski made a racing film about Jackie Stewart "Weekend of a Champion", filmed at the Monaco GP. Stewart won the race.
Good old racing movie, and one of the first times an in car cameras were used.

Thanks for the heads up on that flick. I'll have to look it up. (Though the director is sort of on my "list" ...)
