Goofs When Scott Stoddard's car crashes in the first Grand Prix race you can see a white tendril of smoke shooting out towards the car. This is the hydrogen pump used to propel the fake formula 1 car with a dummy in it to make the crash seem more realistic and should not be in the shot. See more »

Quotes Jean-Pierre Sarti: The danger? Well, of course. But you are missing a very important point.

So it has always seemed to me that to do something very dangerous requires a certain absence of imagination.
