Just like old times. Wearing a helmet with the same design as back then, Fittipaldi looks right at home in JPS 72/5 at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

It is always amazing when I get a chance to drive some of the cars I raced many years ago. This year at the Goodwood Festival I was back in the John Player Special Lotus 72 that I drove many times.
Everytime I get in that car I go back to the time with Colin Chapman and the Lotus team. My memory goes back to all those Grand Prix races and all the championships we did together. It was a very important time in my career and I am lucky that not only can I remember it, but I have the chance now to go back and visit it again.
