In an interview titled 'I fall asleep in front of the television', Gerhard Berger says when he was racing the driving spectacle was greater, races were more unpredictable and drivers' mistakes were punished more. He also criticises F1's payment structure.
"Impress admitted it will rely on £3.8million in donations over four years from the family of the ex-motor racing boss who became a fervent anti-Press campaigner after the News of the World published photos of him at an orgy."
Mike Hawthorn was killed on this day in 1959. He is the only person to have died while holding the F1 world championship title. Jochen Rindt, the 1970 champion, lost his life before he was crowned champion.
