“I get disappointed when I hear about modern racing drivers not having any interest in the past,” said Sir Jackie Stewart when he came into the office to edit the December 2011 issue of Motor Sport. “The one thing about history, and the one thing about knowing a bit of it, is that you learn from it”. Not only that, but the sight of Grand Prix machines tackling the old Nürburgring and Spa circuits is enough to get most of us hooked on the sport for good. Motor Sport has always delved into interesting stories from the past and although the magazine looks to the future, it constantly keeps an eye on F1 history.
