  • F1 Drivers and Cars are Better than Indy Cars'

    All purpose, all weather cars and drivers versus closed circuit specialists who steer only to the left in beautifully built, overdeveloped, unsophisticated cars that belong in the past............................

    .............so says Stirling Moss!

    Another blast from the past. Go to page 93:

    There is no "E" in Stirling.

      1963 was a different world.
      This artcle & quote, although interesting, has nothing to do with how the 2 series AND the 500 are viewed today.

      Hey, I'd love to go back to those times but sadly, I think they are gone.....

            Stirling today says that one of the few regrets of his career is that he didn't try the 500.

              Considering today's F1 and IndyCars that run twisties, I'd say that statement is accurate.

                That whole magazine is cool.

                  If anything, the cars are even farther apart than they were back then. Dallara makes the worst chasis in F-1 and they've already been given the axe for 2011. Indycar handed them the keys to the kingdom.

                        Where do those two quotes come from?

                            Yes, I'm aware of the results of those races. I was inquiring as to the source of the quotes you posted.

                              Then how come they did not show up for the "Race of Two Worlds"?

                              In defense of USAC and the car owners. What kind of new car would you have built for your team. Most likely, something similar to the car that won that last Indianapolis 500. The cars had to be built heavy to withstand the beating on Indy's bricks. The track got paved, but, still the cars were built tough.
