In memory of John Surtees, CBE, who passed away today at the age of 83. Mr. Surtees had a long racing career with seven Motorcycle Grand Prix World Championships, one Formula One World Championship, and one Can-Am Cup championship won throughout 1952-1972. From 1970 he ran his own team, Surtees Racing Organisation, in Formula 5000, Formula 2 and Formula 1, taking the title in Formula 2 in 1972.
I know people hate Lance Stroll because he paid his sit but let’s be realistic. The boy had a really good race. He didn’t smash his car in one of the walls, did not contact anyone…Yes, he wouldn’t have been on podium if other cars didn’t have the problems BUT people’s favourite Dan Ric wouldn’t have won either so…I think Lance deserves his moment of glory this GP. Let him have that this time.
