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.
