Noticed drivers at 67 Monaco GP were routinely countersteer drifting around the Station Hairpin and Gasworks with the rears coming around very quickly. (Maybe its more a powerslide? Not so much interested in the terminology actually).

It is not something I've been able to duplicate with the apparent agility and consistency that now seems typical of the era.
Station Hairpin seems to baffle many other GPLers as well..

How much of this is setup factors?
What setup would favor similar drifts around the Station Hairpin?

Or is this more lack of understanding and skill?

How do they do that?


Also noted again many half shafts angled down from the transaxle?
What is the point of this, especially in view of GPL preference to run rear at 2.5in?

This is the video...YouTube Monaco 1967

Thanks to chris skepis for posting link here.

They're probably using the brakes to get it sliding. Mostly you were looking at Hulme. He loved to slide the car around.
