The Formula One season gets started this weekend in Australia, so of course Jackie Stewart (number 8 on the top 100 F1 drivers of all time list) is talking. We were struck by how much...well, flat-out human carnage that the man has witnessed.

According to the story from The Sydney Morning Herald, Stewart won 27 timesā€”but also saw 57 "close friends, colleagues and competitors" perish on the track. Yeesh. That's hard-core. Makes us appreciate the much-improved safety record F1 has racked up since the last driver lost it all: Ayrton Senna in '94.

Good racing this weekend, gentlemen. Good safe racing. [The Sydney Morning Herald]
