WTF Happened to Scott Speed?

309 043 Näkymät

Some of the Red Bull juniors that make it to Formula 1 fall by the wayside. One of these drivers was Scott Speed - the last American to compete full-time in Formula 1. But why did his career in the topflight of motorsport last just a measly one and a half years?

  • Always remember Martin Brundle, who was a commentator for F1 by this time saying that with his demeanor, and the fact he wouldn't stop talking, he should be a VJ on MTV lol Also seemed to recall that instead of taking reliability issues on the chin, he would talk crap about the team and how 'they' were failing, not 'we' are having a few issues right now etc.

  • Well speed did have a 8th place finish in Australia but unfortunately he overtook coulthard under the yellow flag and he used the offensive language to the stewards and that got him a 25 000 dollar fine

  • Scott Speed got totally screwed by Wrecky Stinkhouse in the ARCA series championship. Stinkhouse went on to a less than spectacular career in stock cars and Speed got the shaft.

  • Speed should have won his 5th Rallycross championship last year if he hadn’t broken his back at Nitro Rallycross... at my home track... which is a freaking nuts track, and I’ve loved every race there (check out Utah Motorsports Campus Rallycross track to see what I mean), but it sucked to hear he’d broken his back regardless.

    • Hahahahahaha dude Lake Speed and Scott Speed have no relation to each other. Thanks for the laugh... you are correct that Lake beat Senna for the karting world championship, but he is definitely not Scott’s dad. Also, Lake had a long career in the NASCAR Cup series, so idk what you mean by “that’s about it.”

  • Scott Speed was chosen to the Red Bull Driver Development Program over a good friend son when they were both at Skip Barber... My friends son was 19 at the time and too old... Very few people know the story but I always imagine "what if"... I know he wouldn't have acted like Scott- that's for sure...

    • Technically there are a couple of good prospects from the US with Alexander Rossi being the most promising since he is genuinely quick, though he did ended up chose to go to Indy whcih have a better prospect for him instead since no F1 team is searching for him at that time CMIIW. Right now the only prospect US driver going to F1 that i know of is Logan Sargeant in F3 (he's been quite consistent too)

  • The armchair racers here in the comments clearly did not watch this video. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I had no clue about Speed's record before and after Formula 1, but it is evident that he isnt anywhere near a bad racer. Not even his record in F1 suggests that - there have been far, far worse drivers flushed in and out of F1...

  • In Hollywood Scott Speed would win his second F1 season and be a Lewis Hamilton, mixed with James Hunt. But whenever I think of him, I invariably think of the Portuguese F1 driver Tiago Monteiro, because his middle name was "Vagaroso", which, in the portuguese language means "very slow".

  • Hi guys i am a motorsport fan and i drive karts quite good too. I would want to ask you an opinion.I ama 15 years old boy and im not rich,im a bit poor too.When i drive karts all the people there including Giancarlo Fisichella,who comes to the circuit sometimes,say that i am very good at driving even because i started only 9 months ago.But i know that in karts and motorsport you need to have moneys to go further in your career.So my question is:should i continue spending moneys even if i dont have many moneys or should i stop with karts? Please answer because i really dont know what to do.

  • Bourdais though French was 4 time champcar champion and was annihilated by Vettel. He was 15 or 17 when Vettel won Monza in a Toro Rosso. So probably people won't rate american quality very high. Good talents from America were non-americans like montoya, villeneuve and italian-romanian american father andretti. Son andretti was a joke.
