The Flying Lap, Episode 75: European GP Preview with Alastair Gibson and Steve Matchett
June 19, 2012
Duration: 1:17:03
As we look ahead to this weekend's European GP in Valencia, we are joined by two of the most creative - and knowledgeable - men in the F1 business. Steve Matchett needs no introduction to our US viewers. Rated by many as the most astute technical commentator on network television, Steve is an integral part of the brilliant SpeedTV F1 commentary team. A former championship-winning mechanic at Benetton, Steve is also a highly-acclaimed writer and author in his own right. He has to date published three books; he writes regularly for F1 magazines around the world; and his autobiography, The Mechanic's Tale, now in its 14th reprint, is rated as the most successful motor racing book ever produced by Orion Publishing. Al Gibson worked with Steve at Benetton in 1996-97 and went on to become Chief Mechanic at BAR-Honda. Then, suddenly, he switched career path to pursue his dream of sculpting used F1 car parts into dramatic shapes. His Carbon Art, exhibited by the Drang Gallery, can today be seen in all parts of the globe while commissions for Alastair flow regularly from some of the biggest names in the industry. WilliamsF1's Mark Barnett guides us towards Valencia from the point of view of a strategy engineer; and we'll be sizing up the European GP with all the usual comment and insight. Will we have an eighth winner this weekend? Both Steve and Al will have their views....
