The Masters have returned.
"People were being killed left, right and center back then," [Phil Hill] says. "I became hyper-sensitive to the danger, and wasn't sure that I wasn't going to kill myself. As a result, racing brought out the worst in me. Without it, I don't know what kind of person I might have become. But I'm not sure I liked the person I did become, because I was selfish, irritable and defensive."

"You just don't mess with Jacques Villeneuve" - Murray Walker, 1997 Hungarian GP.
"When Jacques was with us, he was a very aggressive driver, fiercely competitive, mentally hard as nails. Very quick with it, very gifted. A bright fellow, undoubtedly, very intelligent. He was an absolutely born racing driver - look at the way he'd bang wheels with Michael, pass people on the outside, that kind of thing" -Sir Frank Williams on Jacques Villeneuve
"This year, with BMW, JV's going very well, and I'm pleased for him. Whether or not he'll get a drive next year I don't know, but I hope he does, he's an unusual, and very strong addition to the F1 community. A character." - Sir Frank Williams again on Jacques Villeneuve

Mosley: the STR1 is perfectly legal
If the similarities between last year's Red Bull racer and Toro Rosso's STR1 have you questioning the legality of the latter, don't, because Red Bull's junior team can legal copy last year's RB1 as it wasn't built by the team.
According to the Formula One regulations, teams are not permitted to share designs with each other. However, that only applies if it was the team who did the designing and building of the chassis.
And in the case of last year's Red Bull RB1, it was Ford who put together the car. And, the rules state, outside sources are allowed to supply more than one team.
"My understanding is that with Ford/Jaguar, the parts were, for some obscure reason to do with tax and the internal structure of the Ford Motor Company, designed and built by a company that was not the racing team," FIA President Max Mosley told Autosport.
"If the parts are designed and manufactured by another company, and you own the intellectual property rights of the car that requires them, then it is completely legitimate.
"The thing you can't do is, if you're Williams you can't run a McLaren front wing. But both Williams and McLaren could run a Lola front wing.
"So it looks like it has come from a third company. But if somebody challenges it, then there will be an enquiry. But I'm sure they've taken advice."
