Picture of the week - Formula One in the Past

When you observe drivers of old cars you can see just how much force and body movement was involved in steering vintage racers. Steering wheels were big, the clutch heavy and the gear change a challenge. One reason why it looks so impressive though is that you actually can see the driver while today, you barely see his helmet. This picture was taken at this year's AVD Oldtimer Grand Prix on the Nurburgring.
