"Facts"
During the 1983 Detroit Grand Prix, Tyrrell's Danny Sullivan shares his insight of the Motor City circuit with famed Grand Prix icon Dan Gurney, on-site to gather the facts as a correspondent for Road&Track Magazine. Dan knew his way around the most difficult tracks in the racing world and then built his own cars that won the greatest prizes in racing. Sullivan would go on to find this own immortality by "spinning and winning" the 1985 Indianapolis 500.

"Fascinating"
In the early years of the Canadian Grand Prix at Montreal’s new Circuit Île Notre-Dame, teams would bring their cars along the former Olympic Rowing Basin to enter the old F1 Paddock. Except for a plunge into Monaco Harbor, it was the closest an F1 car ever came to a standing body of water. Here, the Lotus 87 of Elio de Angelis poses for its cameo.

"Flair"
By 1977, two-time Formula One World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi was summoning all his considerable flair and charisma to court sponsors for his struggling Brazilian-based Copersucar-Ford F1 team. Fittipaldi shocked the F1 world in 1976 when he left the ultra-successful Marlboro McLaren team for his brother Wilson’s underfunded F1 effort. Fittipaldi’s had painstakingly developed his M23, and his decision meant that his vacant McLaren seat and eventual World Driver’s Championship would be turned over to James Hunt. © richardkelleyf1.com / All rights reserved.

Jochen Rindt, Lotus 49C – Monaco, 1970 🏎💨🇦🇹

"Fearless"
American Peter Revson had positioned himself for F1 stardom by the fall of 1972. He had surprised everyone with his pole position and second-place finish at the 1971 Indianapolis 500 and went on to also capture that year’s Can-Am championship, both times driving for McLaren. He managed his rise to racing’s highest level in spite of great heartache. Peter had lost his best friend and racing partner, Timmy Mayer, while barnstorming Europe in Formula Junior, and his younger brother Doug, in a Formula 3 race in Denmark.
Yet, because Revson's family was related to the Revlon company, he had to tolerate the derisive label of“playboy racer.”Peter's increasing success proved that label was nonsense. He would win the 1973 British and Canadian Grands Prix for McLaren, but was replaced by Emerson Fittipaldi in 1974. Revson quickly found a home with UOP Shadow, but he lost his life that March when a poorly machined titanium rod end failed, causing his car’s suspension to collapse during testing for the South African Grand Prix.
