WRR TV: Get Ready For F1 2017

Features, Racing I By Winding Road Staff I February 22, 2017

During this early race season lull, get ready for F1 by spending 7 minutes watching one of the great on-track battles in F1 history. This footage from the 1979 French Grand Prix matches an experienced Gilles Villeneuve and newcomer Rene Arnoux. It matches Ferrari and Renault. It matches naturally aspirated flat 12 vs. turbo V-6. It gives you an appreciation of how far video has come. But mostly it features the kind of racing we all want to see thanks to a director who understood that the interesting battle was for P2.
