The remarkable story of Dick Seaman

44 872 Näkymät

Most modern Formula 1 fans don't often think about drivers from the pre-war era. The likes of Rudolf Caracciola and Tazio Nuvolari are often touted as some of the greatest drivers that had ever lived. However, there was another driver around that time who was equally as respected as they were. And that person was Dick Seaman (yes, that is his name). In this video, we have a brief overview of his career and why more people should be aware of his abilities behind the wheel.

  • A true hero in motorsport, all of them were in that era going nearly 200mph on tyres the width of a small car now and no seat belts. The story surrounding Seaman, and his death, is much deeper than appears to most. He wasn't involved with the Nazis and there is great suspicion that (or the German government thought) he was a spy. Many books about his life and death have been blocked from publishing and to this day a wreath appears every year on his gravestone, an order given by Hitler himself which Mercedes deny is them putting there. It makes me so sad this era, in my opinion one of the best, of motor racing is rarely remembered and cast aside by F1. Thanks for the quick video!

  • Interesting fact about this guy, Mercedes have been tending to his grave since his death in 1939 as a mark of respect. And contrary to what the comments may say, he was not a Nazi. I believe there is also some rumour about his cars being buried in the land of his former home
