Reflections with Nigel Roebuck

The Bianchi accident, Montjuich Park 1975, Vettel and Alonso In the hours following Jules Bianchi’s accident, several moments and conversations came back to me, one of them with Martin Brundle at Suzuka in 1995, in which he recalled the Japanese Grand Prix a year earlier.
