    Have just seen this documentary movie in a real movie theater ,Not everyday they show motorsport documentaries in movie theaters :) , Its about Ronnie Peterson who where one of the big F1 stars in the 70s ( for those who don't know ), I was a kid back then and he was one of my heroes in racing.
    Some things I didn't knew before this movie : He learned Niki Lauda the heel and too trick, Niki discovered this when he was driving with Ronnie from A to B in London :D.
    In 1978 Ronnie Peterson was a real second driver in the Lotus team ( it was written in his contract )
    Mario Andretti wanted it that way, because he knew Ronnie was much faster than him.
    So in Quali sessions for the 1978 season Mario Andretti was on super soft tyres ,Ronnie was always on normal tyres and a bit more fuel---And he was often going faster than Mario anyway :D.
