Shitty track, amazing location.
1999 Austrian Grand Prix, A1 Ring.
Jesus H, this is one of the best F1 photos I’ve ever seen. Dale Kristemaker never ceases to amaze me with the quality of the photos he has taken over the years.
Also, you know when you’re a F1 geek when you have favourite F1 photographers. Get on my level. (The Cahiers still win though, sorry Dale)
Anyway, Michele Alboreto for the Scuderia, 1985 Austrian Grand Prix.
A McLaren leads a Williams, followed by Irvine and Alesi, 1998 Austrian Grand Prix.
Join Mika and Michael for some close racing on the old A1 RIng in Austria, back in 1998. Full onboard footage.
Mika is only stopping once and Michael will stop twice, the Ferrari is faster at the hairpin and the corner after the backstraight. Great driving from Mika with that heavy car though, from 4:09 you can see Michael gaining very much in those two corners, but Mika just won’t give any room to pass!
