Monaco looked so quaint in 1962 compared to nowadays. It's gone full glitz since then.

the lack of any safety measures is amazing,
the curbs are also pretty dangerous

I like the way you inserted a clip of Keith V. showing how not to wave a flag (rolled up and limp-wristed) at about the 3:27 mark.

Nicely done.

Actually makes the wall at Fontana seem like a nice safe thing to hit  :bowdown:  :bowdown:

Though, some of the martials and spectators are just as crazy as the drivers :surr:

This is the motorsport I grew up watching. Lightweight cars, primitive tires, zero safety gear, and really big cojones! 8)
