Quotes Edit

Watson in the second Brabham, had problems last season. Twice he looked like winning, in the French Grand Prix he ran out of fuel and at Silverstone, the car led for three quarters of the way, then blew up. Watson's recurring problem is to get the car to the finish line. Harry Carpenter. BBC. 1978 Argentine Grand Prix.
