    Pride must be flying within the people of Sweden today.

    The reports that I read is that, Marcus Ericsson holds former F1 racer Ronnie Peterson in high esteem.
    Marcus has done in the past tribute helmets to Ronnie.





    Ronnie & Marcus.

    I suspect this in a Swedish publication, and Lars might give us a summary of the article.

    Snaking (weaving back and forth) over 220 mph to win, is what makes oval racing at Indy entertaining.

    A safe & competitive race - well done lads.

    When I see the distant between the side of the rod not touching the piston (the gap length/distance where we see the bearings & pin) to the side of the piston, I have to think this much play/clearance has to do with compensating for engine vibrations & heat expansion.

    Or do you need a minimum amount of, rods sliding (back & forth) on the pins to be able to assembly & rebuild the engines.

    I just noticed this (and I was there at the Paris 6 Hour in 1973) in the photo.

    This deck-side air tunnel on Scotti's boat. The reason for it probably only the late Scotti knows.

    Thanks for paying attention..Thats what I meant with look close..He added like a wing when the paint was done.
    Scotti did a lot of testing with small rear wings.
