Thumbs up some perspective.....

The greatest F1 driver Juan Manuel Fangio, in his greatest race,

the German GP at the Nordschleife in 1957

the Argentinan knocked a little over 19 seconds off.....but in 22 laps!!!!!

Sebastien knocked 92.283 seconds off in ONE TRIP UP THE MOUNTAIN

the same percentage change would take ~ 2 minutes 40 seconds off Michael Dunlop's IOM

record

great stuff, some of the linked stuff on the right is good too. The external shots are fun to crank up the volume.
