    Whenever something historical is mentioned on the TV between 1950 and the present, you automatically relate it to the F1 year.

    eg: Man Landing on the moon in 1969 (Jackie Stewart champion for the first time)

    Doppler effect was so easy for me to understand when I first started learning about it in physics.

    Exam question: Describe the Doppler effect.
