    Monaco and the king

    Since Monaco is upon Us again why not watch the king of Monaco on his fast lap.

    Turbo: Keep it spooled at all time

    No electronics gadgets : Keep traction at all times that's easy,right???

    No electronic gear box: Don't F'up get that car in gear while staying way from the wall

    Slow Drives in Monaco no sweat just go around Monaco is really wide ...right??

    How close can I get to the rails ..... Well I can get really close!


    luv this video it does make your juices going! The sound that's coming out of that engine......

    What's a Abarth?...... Glad you ask! Abarth is a small demon that will possess your soul and inspire you to get steezy at every opportunity.

    Amen

    You're actually driving Monaco with one hand most of the time and also how violent was, his neck and head is moving all the time.

    I think 27/30 seconds into this video you can hear him working the gas pedals so the TURBO would be ready for the next section.

    That's one things I've read, that Senna was always on the throttle as needed to keep the rpms up, before, during, after the corners. Considering that his era of racing put him up against Prost, Mansell, Piquet, and even Schumacher and Hill, and given the number of retirements those 3 years with Lotus, it's amazing he won as much as he did. I guess the desire to go head to head with the best and beat them (mostly getting to McLaren with Prost) was what drove him.
