The Driver And The Journalist

The rules and regulations of racing are published by its governing body, the Fèdèration Internationale de L’Automobile in French and English.  In practice the de facto language of the sport is English although it is is often the second, third, or even fourth language of the engineers and drivers. Still the most universal language seems to be hand gestures as this driver explains the behavior of the racecar to the journalist in the pits of Le Mans, 1985.
