Siffert is not happy... Giunti is driving the 512 S number 57, Surtees the 512 S number 55.

Regarding the picture of young Surtees, I spent quite a while trying to verify that it was in fact a picture of him. It wasn't easy. Love the pic though.

Don't forget about pre season tests (1 & 2) in February before the season starts. The tests should be as exciting, if not more.

Allegedly, at least. It's not like F1 TV has always delivered on its promises, after all... :o
