LNO Theater Replay -- Joaquín "Jo" Ramírez

Illustration for article titled LNO Theater Replay -- Joaquín Jo Ramírez

You don't know Jo? Not unlike most of us, Jo was born a petrol head. Unlike most of us, he followed that dream all the way to college where he was majored in mechanical engineering. He later dropped out, moved to Europe with a buddy who raced F1 until he (the buddy) died in his early 20s. Got a job as a mechanic with Maserati and Lamborghini. Then, despite the fact that life was surely sweet enough, moved on to F1 to be a team coordinator for:

- Eight different teams including AAR Eagle, Tyrrell, Ferrari, and Mclaren

-479 GP and 116 wins

-5 WDCs including Stewart, Lauda, Prost, Senna, and Hakkinen (including 10 total WDCs)


-7 WCCs (all with McLaren).

Suffice it say, he's got his hands on a lot of f1's and racing's history and he's willing to sit down for an edited 45 minutes to tell you about it. You should all thank our friends over and sky f1 for producing tonight's piece and dailymotion for hosting it — no, seriously, thank them.


Anyways (here's to you, Doug), getcha popcorn and turn your phones on vibrate. Turn down the lights and turn up the volume! Welcome to the LNO Theater. Enjoy:

(you can also pick this up on Youtube if Dailymotion doesn't want to be a very hospitable host).
