    tooncheese asked for this video in another thread, and I was dismayed to realize that I hadn't started a dedicated Keke thread by now, but what better way to start it than with this classic example of Rosberg car control.



    It's a shame his race had to end this way though.

    Here's another great catch by Keke at Canada 85. Stefan Johansson is left in amazement.

    Looking for another video I found one of my favorite Rosberg vids. Thought I should put it here.

    Highlights of 1986 Monaco GP. Keke starts from ninth on the grid, works his way up to second thanks to a number of gutsy overtakes. No mean feat at Monaco to say the very least. (Laffite's move on Johansson was pretty special too!)

    Ooops. Just realised the Laffite move isn't included in the above link. As this is the Rosberg thread I'll post somewhere else.

    I really should make sure I watch the whole thing through before I post a link... :oops:

    Goodness me! Keke Rosberg's a bit before my time, so I had no idea this man apparently aimed to add a 360 spin to every race he was in. LOL Very amusing to watch those clips, they remind me of my dad's attempts at playing F1 racing games on Playstation.

    It never ceases to amaze me how little Nico has in common with his dad. They are chalk and cheese as racers.

    I think the big difference is the lack of a moustache :moustache:

    jez101 as were Jacques to Gilles, Alain to Nicholas, Ayrton to Bruno... maybe it's in the environment rather than the genes...

    Or the belief that merely because you have a surname you are a double for the original. A heavy burden for a child!!

    Winston Churchill's daughter wanted to go on the stage, but was concerned that it might be thought that she was getting on because of the name. So she spoke to her father who said words to the effect "Use your name as it is, you are good enough to overcome its drawback".
