Those things are so crazy looking!
Brian Walbey: Compared with their successors in modern times they are reasonably simple.
Proper cars!
Brian Walbey: Fairly simple compared with modern F1 cars.
Jolie photo présentée sur le drapeau à  damiers.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martine.
Gotta love how you've inset this into the checkered flag, Brian. Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I've done the flag thing with all of this weeks pictures.

I wonder if he won?
Brian Walbey: he finished 10th, in a race in which 15 cars didn't finish out of 28 starters but he still led he championship after the race.

I have often wondered about petrol advertising, I just fill up by price, if I’m lucky.
Brian Walbey: There isn't much, if any, petrol advertising these days. We just fill up in sums of pounds, usually £20 or £25, I don't really have any idea of the price per litre to be honest.
I had a Praktica at one time . They were decent cameras if a little crude
Brian Walbey: I had two over the years, this was my second one, the first was the Nova with an exposure meter build in above the lens.

45 years ago! The cars are now more streamlined, different style power trains - but most of the design is still there.
Brian Walbey: The differance between the cars then and the cars now is enoumous isn't it. Mind you there is a lot more to go wrong these days as Hamilton and Bottas found out yesterday.

Those are the real ones, Brian. Those were the real drivers, the real "know what they do"....
Great picture.
Brian Walbey: The differance between the cars then and the cars now is enourmous isn't it, and the drivers had to work a lot harder. Yesterday I watched the Dutch MotoGP races from Assen live on television, I'm assuming you all had the lovely weather they were experiencing there. Every year when I watch it I think back to when I came to the Grand Prix there in 1966 and then stayed overnight in Groningen before travelling down to Amsterdam via Volendam, all on a coach of course.
those were the days smile Nice one!!
Brian Walbey: Somehow F1 doesn't have quite the same excitement these days, back then they used to pass each other for one tbing, and in this race there was 28 cars!

Terrific panning. Would be fun to ride (once).
Brian Walbey: I done a lot of motor sport photography back then, both bikes and cars, so got reasonably proficient at panning. I've always thought I would lkke to drive one in a straight line on a long stretch of straight road just to feel the enormous power they have got.
Those were the days, Brian.
