F1 On-board (full race)

Post by tubeguru » 20 Apr 2013, 20:15

Here's a video the F1 fans might like to see.

It's the complete on-board footage from Gerhard Berger's Ferrari at the 1989 Portuguese Grand Prix at Estoril, which he won from second on the grid. Senna was on pole, and Berger got a nice little jump-start to beat him away.

Notice the number of people in the pit lane when he stops at around 50 minutes. Also note there was no speed limit back then.

I remember watching this race live on TV. This was the one where Berger's team mate Mansell overshot his pit and reversed in the pit lane (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUhaZW0e1dE), an action which saw him black-flagged (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5PasV8x_0A). Unfortunately, he chose to ignore the flags and decided instead to take out Senna in an ill-advised overtaking move (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glJOH23JZyE). Mansell was banned from the next race in Spain as punishment for ignoring the black flags.

This was also the only race which Minardi led (for one lap).

Anyway, to the on-board footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4CX6-eGXWU
