Just thought I would share this:

An awesome drive I think you'll agree. This has to be one of my favourite examples of car control at its best, just raw power, a very talented driver, and appalling conditions! :bow: The pioneering days of onboard footage in Motorsport, things have come a long way. A bit of commentary from Murray tops it off nicely too. :thumbsup:

I was thinking exactly the same thing Gareth! I love driving in the wet, it teaches you so much. :smile:

Brilliant drive.

Oh how I miss a rear wheel drive car for that kind of fun.
Certainly sorts out the men from the boys does RWD.

The other lap as good or dare I say better than this was Sennas opening lap at Donington in 1993 European GP an awesome drive given the conditions and how many he passed.

It looks to me like he was just having some fun! :yep:

He certainly wasn't going for a quick lap as he was losing loads of traction just about everywhere - on purpose I might add. :thumbsup:

Yeah, definitely showboating & why not on a clear deserted track! :thumbsup:
