    F1 Classic

F1 Classic is about the past legends of the Formula 1: pilots, heroes, champions and odd figures; races, triumphs and also tragedies... - Ez a blog a Forma-1 1950-ben elkezdődött, színes, tragikus, de minden ízében izgalmas történetéből idéz fel történeteket, sztorikat, anekdotákat. Ma Vettelről, Hamiltonról, Alonsoról szól a Forma-1, de volt itt valaha egy Fangio, Clark, Surtees, Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, Jackie Stewart, Fittipaldi, Lauda, Hunt, Andretti, Jones - csak hogy néhány világbajnokot említsek. Hát még a többiek!
