    Brilliant! It's a shame this important and interesting documentary has so few views compared to the channel average. I guess that's why so much F1 content is gimmicky and shallow, that's what get's the clicks.

    Man I love that Ali story but yours is matching. I know how you feel. I made go carts when I was kid and dreamed of racing. You were never alone in the car you drove, just like Lewis you have a new fan list and I'm on it. Can I go jogging someday with you? Greatest! I was at Sugar Ray's retirement in Baltimore. Ali was there ran climbed over stairs to walk along side of him. I had my hand on his shoulder yelling out " Ali" We are all racers....

    Wow, what a real intelligent and versed gentleman in his craft. I've watched F1 for years and it was only a decade or so later that i had some semblance of this titan in his sport . Just goes to show that money can't buy everything. Just like with Lewis, a massive talent, but he was just too good for his competition . Great examination of this proud great man.

    It was sad that at the 14:20 timestamp he didn't credit his dad for mentorship and leadership. That's a fierce and conspicuous distinction between Willy and Lewis amongst knowledgeable black men.

    Great interview but would off liked to hear Willy talk more about his current feelings on bill Crosby (probably very mixed) and the terrible accident involving him at a Indy car street race where a marshal trying to push a different stalled car got hit by Willy and killed …… how much was his fault? …… how much was indycar officials/safety standards to blame?…… and did it kill his career momentum in Indy cars although he made the Indy 500 a few years after did it cost him full season drives?

      Whatever Willy answers-to my above questions are..... he is a grade A human being …… I was aware previously of Willy due to my love off indycar books but probably as they were written by a white American writer I picked up on his “uppity” semi aggressive nature through their words and wasn’t 100% sure on him …… but hearing him in person I cannot believe more people in motorsport didn’t give him a shot.

    This is what most people don't understand. As a black person you spend time trying to break unnecessary barriers while others are putting in this time to better themselves. You need to be perfect a black person to be accepted. Look at Obama for instance, the man was judged on/by anything. And along came Trump and all of a sudden the standard was lowered. Lewis Hamilton is criticized for anything that other drivers do and get away with.

    Yes it's annoying to make everything about race, but Willy T is a true hero. He was threatened to be killed in America just because he was successful and black. He just wanted to enjoy racing like the rest of us. Living in a hostile environment is never nice...So if you're frustrated because you don't like him for whatever reason, try to understand the context. Thank you everyone

      The truth should not be annoying... It should be a reminder that if we are not vigilant we can return to a place far worst then just talk. We can choose to look forward without looking back... and ignore the roads we have once travelled. But history is one of those things that can go both back and forward. To know where you want to go... you have to know where you have already been. If you don't, you may find yourself back where you started.
