Ronnie Peterson: February 14, 1944 - September 11, 1978

Do you want to post a tribute about your favourite retired drivers, perhaps you want to discuss the rantings of the MIT (men in tweed). They thought they were safer when they retired, perhaps not mumblers!! How about a tribute to those that are not drivers but still in the game?

Here is some footage of Ronnies crash which still to this day I find incredible to watch, just for the driver reaction (especially Rega to Bernie) & the very heavy handed Italian Police..

There were lots of people to blame at Monza in 78 & Ricardo Patrese was not one of them

Makes a sketchy penalty for some overtaking quite trivial when you are reminded about times like that.
