The last one shows what an F1 driver sees from the cockpit before the halo was fitted.

It's up to you if you comment.

I like F1 and sold many machines to a lot of them. I got to sit in Williams 1987 championship car in the factory and met Frank. Who's a lucky boy then. I met Schumacher when he was at Benetton. Jacky Stewart at his factory. McLaren. BAR. etc. etc.

Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

I like the second shot. The car in the first will strip the tyre treads very rapidly!

It is and the JLR design centre and headquarters.
I used to work there for about 18 months when BMW owned Rover Group but moved to Whitley, Coventry until retirement.
