This week, we have a special episode as Eddie Jordan and 25-time world champion Adrian Newey catch up with an old friend in Cape Town, 1979 F1 world champion Jody Scheckter. The 73-year-old remembers leaving his home country during apartheid to achieve his dream, racing with Gilles Villeneuve at Ferrari and being the only South African to win an F1 world title.
