    Graham, Tony Brise and other members of the Embassy Hill team, which ceased to exist when Graham's plane crashed and killed most of the team. A very tragic day in F1 history.

    I remember it well. One risk too many.

    If not for his horrific accident, I suspect this would have become a very common sight!

    It's very interesting to see how the old Formulas from the past ages (60',70' and 80') looked comparing today's cars. I have been watching the Historic Formula racing prior to GP USA this year. It looked that the drivers had very big heads in helmets when sitted in the cockpits. Here's the Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler being driven by Jody Scheckter at the 1976 German Grand Prix.– arguably one of the most radical F1 cars ever to have raced.

    The previous picture made me to think, what are the places for iconic images for each circuit. Looking for such pics that it is instantly recognizable, which circuit it is.

    Australia - I think lakeside pics are pretty good for that as they have city silhouette in the background
    Shanghai - The two bridges on the start/finish straight or the grandstand covers.
    Sakhir - After the race was moved into the evening, the chances have been decreased a bit. But the tower on the background can easily give it.
    Sochi - There are lot of Olympic buildings which can tell it
    Barcelona - That picture above is a good spot. Alternatively the grandstand is well recognizable
    Monaco - About everything there
    Montreal - Inside of either hairpin
    Baku - Castle section
    Red Bull Ring - The Alps give good background, alternatively the bull can be included in the picture
    Silverstone - The pit building is a good one, also thinking the building in the beginning of old start/finish straight
    Hungaroring - The village in the background when cars are coming towards the chicane is in my mind. The waterpark is also nearby
    Spa - Eau Rouge or inside La Source
    Monza - Lots of good places. Nowadays as the cars usually have smallest wings there helps also with a recognition
    Marina Bay - Lot to choose again, but mostly thinking around turn 10
    Sepang - Looking for grandstand covers to be there
    Suzuka - Ferri's wheel
    Austin - The tower
    Mexico City - Inside the baseball stadium
    Interlagos - Acceleration zone from Juncao can show the city there
    Yas Marina - The hotel

    Singapore's iconic shot is the aerial shot of the "white ribbon" of the track snaking through the city.

    Horrendous accident, yet he still had the capacity to wave to the supporters on the grandstand. A true great. ;)

    I saw that live, I was convinced he was toast.

    It was in the ITV days, as the car slid to a halt one of his arms fell limply out of the cockpit, and the commentator announced, 'he fine, I can see him moving' I'm sat there thinking, 'nope that was definitely gravity, he had nowt to do with it'

    sobriety - I believe a commentator said that about Senna. Maybe a human attempt to reassure themselves more than the public?

    Senna did raise his head for a moment. You can see it in the video.

    Rutherford - I believe that was explained as a symptom of the forces of the crash. I do not seek to watch that video.

    Possibly just some nerves sending signals.
