    No thanks. I’ll take the ’61 version every time, regardless of the model pics. Back then, the lead in Grands Prix actually changed hands out on the road rather than in the pits.

    My dream revision of F1 includes spec cars. Before you groan, those spec cars are new-build first-gen Lotus 49s built to the standards of the day complete with Cosworth DFVs.

    The World Drivers Championship should reward someone who can drive better than his competitors with no artificial help from the car. Slapping everyone in the Lotus 49 cigar would rapidly sort out drivers from pilots.

    Please explain, 2009? All I see is fences!

    Well: when you think about it, that formula (no pun intended) seems to work in NASCAR.

    Well, maybe the billboard is more interesting. Not sure what else, though…

    Why is there a Marlboro logo on the rear wing in the 2009 photo? I thought tobacco ads were banned long before then. Shouldn’t it be the bar code?

    Edmund – I think the tobacco advertising ban varied by country at the time (maybe still?).
