|The Flying Lap, Episode 41: Sir Jackie Stewart|
October 19, 2011
In this special episode we talk to Sir Jackie Stewart, three-times World Champion and the winner of 27 Grands Prix for BRM and Tyrrell. A tireless campaigner for safety and charitable causes throughout his racing career, and in the years that followed his retirement in 1973, Sir Jackie is today acclaimed globally as one of the most significant figures in the history of our sport. In the aftermath of the shocking accident in Las Vegas that cost the life of Dan Wheldon, he talks about lessons that can be learned in all disciplines of the sport - and about the F1 politics over the years that, astonishingly, have led to Sir Jackie never being asked to take a formal role (in the area of safety) within the sport. Despite that omission, there is no doubt that no single individual has done more for the safety of drivers, pit crew and spectators. We talk about his favourite cars, his most "harmonious" races, his own mental approach to racing, about the current F1 stars, about Red Bull Racing - a team he originated in Milton Keynes - and about the searching question he asked of Ayrton Senna early in 1990, now made famous by the "Senna" movie . Candid and open, Sir Jackie also talks about his battle with dyslexia and his spiritual beliefs.
