      @bowlchamps37 Other people from other countries may call Finns (and Islandics) as Scandinavians, but it is so little mistake, that Finns do no get mad or offended about it. Nordic or Scandinavian, who cares.

    .... Finland is not a Scandinavian country. That is to say, if you take all definititions of Scandinavia, the core three countries - and the initital meaning of it are Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Another reason is because Finland has more ties with Estonia than Sweden... So yeah. Not Scandinavian in my book.

    Finland actually isn't a part of Skandinavia at all, Finland is in Fennoskandia. But yeah, good video after all. I believe that in Finland we have so many great drivers (Mika Häkkinen, Mika Salo, Valtteri Bottas, Kimi Räikkönen, Markku Alen, Ari Vatanen etc for example.) because we learn to drive so young and we have a lot of different driving conditions here in Finland. So I think that Kimi Räikkönen is pretty much right when he said what he said. BTW I learned to drive a car when I was just 7 years old and I got my first car.

    Mercedes really had a slump after 1955? Sometimes these American channels never get their facts right. Mercedes stopped racing after 1955, due to the incident in Le Mans. They only returned in 2010. And also Lewis Hamilton won his second world championship in 2014, and not 2012

    nearly all US indy champions that converted F1 failed miserably. F1 drivers who were bad in F1 won indy championships lol Mansel won the F1 championship then went to the USA and entered Indy racing and won it in his 1st season. He was to old to carry on in F1 so thought yep indy is for old drivers than cant cut it in F1 anymore lol.

    But the history's books you read didn't told you the whole story... All the 3 brazilians champions: Fittipaldi, Piquet and Senna all made them super licence on UK. All they had british mentors like Senna's Kart mentor Fullerton, indicated by Fittipaldi. A brazilian never won a F1 title without a British Car: 1 Willians, 2 Brabhan and 5 for Maclaren... Massa tryed with Ferrari. But lost. To a UK driver on a UK car with a German engine...
