which is the beest '67 car?

i don't just mean the quickest.....i mean the best/easiest [yeah right!!!] handling, most reliable etc.....  :cap:

i've been looking at a few leaderboards of various kinda at the gplrank site [using multiple choice hell - quality!!] and it seams as if each car is the best at different track.....is this true?  :hmm:

You can rule out the BRM (too narrow a power band and heavy) and Honda (seems to be too much weight on the rear).  The Brabham seems to be very easy to get sideways, although you can more easily correct it than with most other cars.  The Lotus is the fastest and most nimble, but a handful if you're not a very good driver.  That leaves the Cooper (slowish but good handling), the Eagle (a little cumbersome, but fast) and the Ferrari (my favourite for all-round behaviour) as the best to start out with.
