No longer a car

Sorry, especially to Stew, for two video posts in one day but I really thought this was interesting. At Goodwood in 2006 they had Jackie Stewart and Nico Rosberg switch cars and describe what it was like. Nico seemed to have no problems with the old car and descibed it like he was driving in a lower formula. But Jackie explained that the new systems seemed very complicated and non-intuitive to him. In fairness Jackie is more likely to be honest than Nico is at this point in his career. But on the other hand, it is very interesting that the modern Formula 1 car seems so alien to a seasoned professional.
