Introducing the turbocharged Teapot.
“I remember that Ken Tyrrell laughed at us a lot. It was he who called us the tea pot but we made our debut, we weren’t a disgrace, we were in the middle of the pack and at the end of a number laps, what we expected happened: the engine broke with a nice cloud of smoke which made everyone laugh.” - Jean-Pierre Jaboille about the debut of Renault RS01, first turbocharged F1 car.
“It´s very important for a driver to control himself. But that was one of the few days in my F1 career when I got carried away.. Stowe, Club… it was just fantastic. I can remember coming out of Woodcote with a completely blistered left rear, hardly able to keep it on the road any more in the last corner. But I beat my own time.” - Keke Rosberg about his record-breaking qualifying lap in Silverstone 1985 (with an average speed of 160.925 mph).
It´s in their eyes -the 1980s.
