The John Player Special Lotus from the earlier post got me intrigued on all the old Formula cars. Formula 1 today is cool and all, and its level of technology and engineering certainly demand recognition. However, it just doesn’t do it for me. Seems too soft with all the crazy electronics (then again, I hardly pay much attention to car racing nowadays). Wish the car-driver balance would be more disproportional, with a driver bias. When I look at the formula racing circa the 60’s and 70’s, I see a far more visceral touch. This is what racing should be about, raw and gritty.
