Thanks everybody.

Would you get Lewis Hamilton sitting down in the dirt and up against the advertising boards today. Aka Graham Hill.

Also a bit mythed about the tire types. Always thought they raced on grooves and wet/Inters came in later, with the smooth dry tires ?

Reading on Wikipedia about the 68 season and seeing that it was Dan Gurney who brought in the Full face helmet, in this year.

I think 60s wet tyres had different compounds and tread patterns to dry tyres but would have looked pretty similar.

Interesting when announcer said it is character of Lotus to lose stability under braking.

Thanks TP.
Began watching thinking of just checking it out then had to stick it out until the end.

It's a fantastic scrap around 40 min between Hulme and Ickx.

The health and safety got a bit dangerous, on the low loader procession ramp, at the end.

At one point I thought Rob Walker was going to go over 😁

There's even  a "DAN GURNEY" on the track. It's can be seen several times. One good view is at 1:00:44.
Thanks for the link.
