If you were given a choice to travel back in time, which driver/s and/or team/s would you like to watch sitting on the sidelines.

Would have to be to a Nurburgring Nordschleife race in the late 60s or early 70s...those guys lived and breathed danger, flying over the jumps at 150mph...

...I'd be sure to stand behind a tree though! ;)

Interesting question.

I don't know where I'd go. I definitely love to go to a proper old school race just to see the insanity of these drivers going stupidly fast over big bumps and the like. In the same way, I'd hate to be there. Too much danger would probably freak me out. I'd hate to be sitting there having fun and end up seeing a guy burn to death or have his body broken in a big crash.

Maybe go to Canada 2012 for the epicness of JB's comeback, but then I'm soaking wet and sitting there for hours doing nothing... Every race I can think of has some reasonable drawback to it.

@mac_d: For sake of this thread lets gloss over the accidents and just stick to racing

Let's see now here...I'd like to see the Senna-Mansell duel from 1992 in Monte Carlo...I would DEFINITELY go an see a Bennetton BMW turbo with 1200 hp in qualification mode...I'd like to see the 6-wheeled Tyrrell P24 win in Sweden...and, of course, Monaco 1996.
Oh, and regardless of the year, just time-travel me to the uphill of Eau Rouge and leave me there.

No one knows if it is impossible. It just isn't possible at the moment. But that doesn't make it impossible.

Sticking to the OP's criteria I'd go back to the late 80's and watch Senna and Prost at their pomp followed by Mansell's year of domination and the arrival of Schumacher before reliving all of Schuey's years as an adult to fully appreciate him properly.

Get well soon Schumi. Keep fighting as hard as we know you can. Thinking of Corinna, Gina-Maria, Mick and the rest of the Schumacher family.

Time lines. Besides you don't know if you haven't already met someone from the future and they just didn't say anything. Also if someone started going on about being from the future most people would just go "yeah yeah" then send them to a shrink if they were insistent on the matter. So who knows. But it isn't impossible. It isn't impossible until we've proved you can't do it. We may never prove it.

Plenty of experiments that prove it's impossible. Pretty much anything that deals with time dilation. But that's a moot point, what with this topic being about the fantasy element of it.

Back on topic, at the Nuerburgring, 1957. Peter Collins driving fast round the Green Hell, and Fangio driving even faster behind to catch him up. Both of them knowing that if something goes wrong with their cars, or they make a mistake, they are probably going home in a box.
Also, Jim Clark's drive at Monza in 1967, making up a lap on the pre chicane circuit must have been something else. There's practically nowhere to make up time, let alone a lap's worth.

I've been following Formula 1 since the late 1970's and in my opinion Formula 1 has been getting better and better, so I wouldn't want to go back in time permanently. But if I could go back for a brief look, I would like to see Stirling Moss, who's been called the best driver never to win a WDC.

I'd like to go back to the 90's and punch Hermann Tilke in the nuts.

I'd follow around F1 1970-1972 and try to pick-up on Fran├žois Cevert's cast-offs.
A full time job, according to Stewart.
Would probably have to pass through the "Coolness Machine" several times before this time travel adventure, however, as I am NOWHERE near as cool as Cevert.

Then I would try to fix those Armco barriers....

Definitely the 50's and 60's when there was proper danger/excitement. The adrenaline rush must have been incredible. To watch those drivers and cars fighting to not only win but keep the car on track must have been mesmerizing.

Really? I thought we were discussing actually going back to these events with our time machines not just speaking hypothetically....

Anyway, my vote is for Spa '98.

Id love to go back in time to watch the very championship won by Farina and all the WDC races of Fangio and Moss racing.

For me it would have to 1937 to see & hear those those marvelous men & cars.
Driving machines capable of well in excess of 200 mph wearing just linen headgear to stop their hair from being tossed, tyres like elastic bands, no brakes to speak of & exhausts who's primary design function was to burn the driver's arm.
The Avus GP that year was won at an average speed of over 172 mph.

I would love to see races from all years before I started to watch F1, so everything taking place before 1989.
I even would love to see the very first car races taking place in the late 19th century.

Time travel won't be possible. Time is something we've made up it doesn't even exist as something that can be reversible.

I choose the 80s

Surely you need to go the 1950s and punch his dad in the nuts?

A nice 80's battle of Senna and Prost would be quite entertaining! Otherwise I liked the late 90's when Villenueve was competing at the top and McLaren just changed to the silver paint scheme.
