Quite astounding to watch, particulary Rosberg in practice on a 1:05:591 @ 160.9Mph average over the 2.932 miles of Silverstone in '85*, and the jubilant power slide he did into the pits on his return We'd been dragged out of a period of technical diversity where, unlike today, every car looked different and anything that could be conceived could be built, though in some cases it might then be banned...

BMWs take has always been said to involve tempered old production blocks, left outside & occasionally pissed on. And the juice Bernard Charles team pumped into it has always had the reputation of being somewhat outside the regulations? I particularly remember the '81 British GP, seated at Woodcote. This year loudly rang the death knell of the ubiquitous DFV, though unlike the soon to be dominant turbos, Watsons elderly Ford V8 (UK designed '65/67) sounded sweet & on song when he crossed the line to pull off the equivalent of an FA cup win with 9 men (no goalie) after just missing a gyrating Gilles...

And, with Silverstone being just down the road we had 50cc, 125cc, 250cc, 350cc & 500cc bikes, and sidecars too

Strange though, in this edit the end is changed. In the original he crosses the finish line & in celebrating crashes into the pit wall & dies. Go figure...
