On Tuesday John Surtees will be in Maranello with Ferrari, the team with whom he won the 1964 world championship, doing a variety of activities.
Surtees remains the only man to win the world championship on both two wheels and four, something which as a keen biker myself I still find unbelievable. Of course there was no downforce on the cars then, as there is today, so the difference between disciplines was probably a little less, but it’s a mind blowing achievement.
One of Surtees’ tasks in Maranello will be to record a short video for JA on F1 readers answering a few burning questions you’ve always wanted to know about Surtees.
The opportunity comes courtesy of our friends at Shell, who supplied fuel and lubes for Ferrari back then, as they still do today in fact.
So send in your questions and we’ll get them answered
