There are people out there who still remembers how their Sunday afternoons were spent years ago. So intense was the sport’s that somehow its energy would whine up in your living room and impound your existence. Even just by being at home in your shorts and catching it on TV, it could still deliver an outburst of emotions, pure joy and adrenaline rush at the pleasure of speed. No argument would be able to settle the score in deciding which was the best era of Formula One. From the era of five-time-world-champion, Fangio to the times of Jim Clark, from the impartible rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda to the deadly and brooding battle between the McLaren’s pair, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna and right to the times of the Formula One king, Michael Schumacher; each moments had its strong and striking points and also the most utterly poignant. As vivid as the sport so are the pictures and here are some which takes your breath away – all the way from and around the circular tracks of Formula One and as far as 50 years ago and beyond with Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill’s first 3 images winning pole position of this illustrious Grand Prix memories.
