    Worth mentioning again.
    Terrific filme by Polanski

    "In 1971, motor racing fan Roman Polanski spent a weekend with World Champion driver Jackie Stewart as he attempted to win The Monaco Grand Prix. Polanski was given intimate access to Stewart's world for three days, both on the track and off."

    What a video! Thank you for posting. Such simpler times. Surprising how sparse everything is: spectators, boats in the marina... compare to today’s congestion.

    Awesome footage. Thanks for sharing.

    I googled and found these 2 notes on Wiki about this race : 

    • A marshal, Ange Baldoni, was killed by the dislodged right rear wheel of Richie Ginther's BRM when it collided with the Lotuses of Maurice Trintignant, Innes Ireland and Trevor Taylor, as well as Dan Gurney's Porsche at the Gasometer hairpin on lap 1.
    • This was Jim Clark's first pole position in Formula One.

    Also Grace Kelly as princess of Monaco handing out the Trophy.

    BBC Sport: "Could Porsche be coming to F1?"

    Porsche was last involved in F1 as a works team in 1962, and last supplied engines in 1991

    On Friday, the rest day in Monaco, the team bosses had a meeting with F1 owner Liberty Media, on the latest stages of the plan to re-shape the sport from 2021.

    This follows a meeting at the Bahrain Grand Prix when Liberty first laid out its plans in detail - for a cost cap, a restructured and more equitable revenue distribution and a change of the technical regulations to try to close up the grid.

    Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff said that Liberty set out the results of their talks with the teams over the intervening period, outlined what he called the "common denominator", and that the next stage was to "merge them into a proposal from Liberty to the teams" within the next two months.

    The engine regulations are moving rather quicker than that. FIA president Jean Todt told the teams he was hoping to publish the definitive 2021 engine regulations by the end of June.

    The manufacturers have now accepted the FIA's desire to ditch the so-called MGU-H, the clever part of the hybrid system that recovers energy from the turbo and which is largely responsible for the revolutionary efficiency levels these F1 turbo hybrid engines achieve.

    Wolff feels this sends a bad message on efficiency but accepts that from a spectacle point of view it might be necessary. Removing the MGU-H, and restrictions on fuel flow and capacity, will make the engines much louder - their relatively flat sound has been a complaint of many fans since they were introduced in 2014.

    What's most interesting, though, is why the FIA wants to remove the MGU-H. And that is because it is the wish of Porsche.

    The German marque's owner Volkswagen Group has flirted with F1 for some time now, and is expressing interest again. But it has said it would not come in if the MGU-H was still on the engines.

    This is because the technology is complex, and Porsche fears the same problem as suffered by Honda when it returned to F1 in 2015 - a lack of competitiveness and years of development to catch up with manufacturers who have been perfecting the technology for a long time.

    Sources say Porsche has a single-cylinder engine under development - the first stage of producing a new engine - but has yet to decide whether to enter F1 or how, as in with its own team or as an engine supplier. Even so, the FIA decided it wanted to accommodate Porsche in case it decided in favour.

    Porsche is understood to be the only realistic potential new entrant. Insiders say Aston Martin will not come, despite expressing an interest in building an engine if the rules work for the company, and no independent engine manufacturer is said to be on the cards. Even the new rules would be too complex and expensive for them.

    When a car is down like 160HP compared to others and yet managed to stay in front....there is something seriously wrong. 

    Ricarrdo is just lucky, at any other track he would have been long passed. Monaco is the only track where he can keep the lead.

    Very strange indeed, as Porsche had a MGU-H in the 919 LMP1

    Seems Jolyon Palmer is a better Analyst than he is an F1 driver...

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/44275461

    The main damage was done when Ecclestone did the deal with Pirelli to create a single tyre supplier to F1.

    What is needed is competition with tyres, as with engines which would encourage manufacturers to be competitive, especially at a track as slow (compared with others) as Monaco.

    Once this deal expires, Liberty would do well to allow teams to pick their own tyre suppliers as they do with engines.
