Felt this was worth reposting as this is an astounding and very revealing interview and the fact that one of the drawbacks of forums is that things get covered over very easily.

Amongst many other fascinating things "Nige" discusses spinal concussion of 85G from the crash at the 1987 Japanese GP qualifying at about the 24 minute mark, he was a paraplegic for 3 months !
F1 injuries dont get aired enough and the nature of them has changed with the different formulae and tracks.

A tremendous talk from Sir Lewis Hamilton, quite the insight.
You may have noticed his trip to Africa with his brothers lately too.

They have built some great cars, but for me the best were the older "sleepers" when they were not in house with MB yet, and branding wasn't often recognized by many.

There was a local guy that, like myself, was friends with the owner and a customer of his local computer shop. I had met him a number of times, and somehow one day we got talking cars. When I mentioned AMG, he pointed to his 450 and said it was an AMG. Completely under the radar in such a big car, without any real external clues. From my memory I think it had a 7.3 liter engine based on the Merc 6.9. He took me for a ride down the road, and for such a large car it would flat out scoot! Even with some lifting to ease the 1-2 shift it gave a solid bark of the rear tires and could really pull. Sleepers are fun. :mrgreen:

Here in the US, the Hammers were the cars that really brought AMG into the public eye. I think they got reviewed by a number of the big car publications, and that didn't hurt. There were a couple in my area, mostly owned by the crew of a successful local music producer. A number of others that were modded to look like the Hammer with wheels and such, but lacking the true muscle.
