Grumpy Uncle Jackie.

Poking around YouTube I found this old program with Jackie Stewart testing race cars of the 1980. While the "wee Scot" may across as a bit of a grumpy old man and you may chuckle at his defining himself "a man of average height", he is in fact correct and fair both in evaluating the cars and his own performance.

What Stewart criticizes on these cars reveals just how amateurish some of Formula 1 cars were, really up until Williams and Mclaren raised standards for everyone.
