|The Flying Lap, Episode 36: Italian GP Debrief with Derek & Conor Daly|
September 15, 2011
The 2011 Santander Italian Grand Prix at Monza was kaleidoscope of accidents, high-speed passes and contentious defence. No-one is better qualified to reflect on the weekend's events than Derek Daly, the FIA F1 Driver Steward for the weekend. We look in detail at the first corner accident triggered by HRT's Vitantonio Liuzzi; Derek gives us his views on the Michael Schumacher/Lewis Hamilton battle; and we re-examine the brilliance of the World Champion, RBR's Sebastian Vettel. Conor Daly, fresh from an amazing run to sixth place in the GP3 on Saturday (from 17th on the grid) talks about his season with Carlin Motorsport, his success in the US this year in Indy Lights - and what life is like for a young American driver on the F1 trail.
