'Rush' meets 'Senna' at the Nürburgring and More

Where one grudge match ended, another one started. If the latter part of the 20th century's racing history had to be condensed into one race and one movie, this should be it. Equal cars, equal chances of winning, 17 (!) shared (future or past) F1 World Championship titles and much more. The 1984 Nürburgring… » 4/23/14 3:20am 4/23/14 3:20am
