Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

How would Hamilton and verwhatsit have done in those cars?

Presented in gorgeous non-faded color, thanks Kodachrome (RIP)!

Faster then, wiser now.

The most dangerous form of ignorance is not knowing that you don't know anything!

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity
