This silent Super-8 film of the 1968 Monaco Grand Prix is the perfect time warp to watch in contrast to the dazzling spectacle of the recent Singapore Grand Prix. The raw footage of the then-savage sport captures the essence of what a street-circuit F1 race was 40 years ago. For better or for worse, things have certainly changed. Film below the jump.
Pommy Graham Hill won that race in that funny looking Lotus (No 9) with last place (which was 5th place) to the the late Aussie great Denny Hulme in the McLaren Ford. Only 5 cars finished.
Those were the days when drivers did more the drive. In the case of Australian Sir Jack Brabham, he built his own car (Brabham Repco, No2 & No 3) and dominated F1 in the 60's and 70's. Beat that Hamilton!
