    • @bowlchamps37 Other people from other countries may call Finns (and Islandics) as Scandinavians, but it is so little mistake, that Finns do no get mad or offended about it. Nordic or Scandinavian, who cares.

    • @EyesOfByes It's not so big mistake. Islandics and Finns don't get mad if somebody makes this tiny mistake. (When saying Finland and Iceland are Scandinavia)

  • This was really interesting. As a Finn driving on frozen lakes throughout my youth I think you really nailed it regarding the roots of Finnish driving skills. The same actually applies for Swedish ones, although the interest in F1 in Sweden plummeted with the death of Ronnie Peterson just as with Senna in Brazil, and has never really recovered. One aspect of the Nordic driving style is that it “oversteered”. No one displayed this more than Ronnie Peterson, but all Finnish drivers have had the same preferences. However, nowadays, as Fernando Alonso, with his “understeered” driving style, has shown many times, it is not necessarily the fastest style, and it is also harder on the tyres.

  • Biggest reason for the Mercedes slump from 1955 on was due to their with drawl from racing, "a move influenced by the deaths at Le Mans that year" ... they dominate.

  • Thinking about F1 going full electric and I actually don't mind now. 🤷🏾‍♂️ Why, well it's about what we have already. We haven't seen teams having to fix engines during races for a very long time. Fuel stops no longer exist. When a engine goes or has an issue it's typically a DNF. So going E 🤦🏾‍♂️ does it change the history of F1?

  • .... Finland is not a Scandinavian country. That is to say, if you take all definititions of Scandinavia, the core three countries - and the initital meaning of it are Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Another reason is because Finland has more ties with Estonia than Sweden... So yeah. Not Scandinavian in my book.

  • Finland actually isn't a part of Skandinavia at all, Finland is in Fennoskandia. But yeah, good video after all. I believe that in Finland we have so many great drivers (Mika Häkkinen, Mika Salo, Valtteri Bottas, Kimi Räikkönen, Markku Alen, Ari Vatanen etc for example.) because we learn to drive so young and we have a lot of different driving conditions here in Finland. So I think that Kimi Räikkönen is pretty much right when he said what he said. BTW I learned to drive a car when I was just 7 years old and I got my first car.

  • Mercedes really had a slump after 1955? Sometimes these American channels never get their facts right. Mercedes stopped racing after 1955, due to the incident in Le Mans. They only returned in 2010. And also Lewis Hamilton won his second world championship in 2014, and not 2012

F1 drivers who were bad in F1 won indy championships lol Mansel won the F1 championship then went to the USA and entered Indy racing and won it in his 1st season. He was to old to carry on in F1 so thought yep indy is for old drivers than cant cut it in F1 anymore lol.
