When watching a Formula 1 car blast around a track at breakneck speeds, it’s easy to forget that there are living, breathing human beings strapped inside and guiding it. And like most human beings, Formula 1 drivers tend to share things that are on their minds with the outside world. Yes, there are some folks who walk among us who are interested in what a driver’s favorite color is, or what his favorite race is for local cuisine, but we’re all about drivers’ musings on their job, i.e. driving fast and passing under the checkered flag before anyone else.
Finnish YouTuber extraordinaire Antti Kalhola takes a look inside the minds of these latter day gladiators by superimposing some quotable quotes from the likes of Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio and Ayrton Senna over some fantastic footage of auto racing’s top class from across the decades and setting it to some epic instrumentals. Sounds so simple, doesn’t it? Yet the end product is powerful, nuanced and, if you ask us, worthy of inclusion in any F1 broadcast.
