In this special edition of the RacingNews365.com F1 podcast, Michael Butterworth and Dieter Rencken are joined by Cedric Selzer, former chief mechanic to Jim Clark in his championship-winning year of 1963.

Looking back over the pages of history, Cedric provides a fascinating insight into life as a mechanic at Team Lotus during a vastly different era of F1.

What was Clark like as a person, and what made him so quick as a driver?

How was life working under legendary team boss Colin Chapman, the man who pioneered so many developments in the early days of F1?

In the days before international travel was as commonplace as it is now, what was life like on the road as the team drove from race to race all over Europe?

And why did Chapman sack Cedric twice – only to then reinstate him just as quickly?

All this and much more on this edition of the RacingNews365.com F1 podcast!
