    Sir Jackie Stewart explains how he began advocating increased safety

    A solemn video really. I think it brings across how it was in those years..

    "The outer perimeters of life"!

    I found BBC4's documentary :-)

    Jackie Stewart was dyslexic and the way this was handled at his school traumatized him deeply...

    That explains why Mosley called him a half wit... Smiley

    Re: Sir Jackie Stewart explains how he began advocating increased safety

    From: http://sport.scotsman.com/sport/39Mosley-called-me-a-certified.4139982.jp

    Plain speaking is not a quality Mosley cherishes in others and he has responded to attacks on his credibility by seeking to denigrate or punish his detractors. Mosley has sought to marginalise Stewart, saying that: "It's annoying that some of the sponsors listen to him because he's won a few championships, but nobody else in formula one does – not the teams, not the drivers. He's a figure of fun among drivers. He goes round dressed up as a 1930s music hall man. He's a certified halfwit."

    Stewart takes that as a reference to his dyslexia, saying the slight speaks volumes for Mosley. "Those sort of comments show him up," says Stewart. "They prove that he's intelligent but not always smart. Once upon a time I'd have been horrified by him talking about my dyslexia, but not now. So what if I can't recite the alphabet?

    "I did think about suing him and was told I had a cast iron case, but it was so petty and I didn't want to come down to his level. What it showed was that his decision-making, especially when he's in a rage, is worryingly faulty."

    Re: Sir Jackie Stewart explains how he began advocating increased safety

    Costas, I was just joking mate. Mosley is extremely intelligent (whoever saw his parliamentary speech back in 2003 and compared it to the pathetic speech of Ecclestone can attest to that) but also vindictive and dictatorial. He was a figure head in F1 though, unlike Todt. As far as Sir Jackie is concerned... he is a colourful chap, isn't he? ;)

    Re: Sir Jackie Stewart explains how he began advocating increased safety

    Yes, yes, I know you were joking!  I completely agree with your outlines of Mosley and Stewart, too.

    I posted the excerpt as additional info :)
