Re: Follows old adage...

"I long for the days when cars didn't have such things (like the 60's)."

Though there was a very sobering documentary on BBC a few years ago which covered the experience of drivers in this era when 20-30 drivers would turn up at the first GP knowning that by the end of the season (probably only ~12 GPs later) 3 or 4 of them would have been killed. I remember in particular a driver recounting a Monaco GP where a driver had crashed into the hay bales at the chicane and the car had caught fire ... every lap they drove past the crashed car and from the smell of burnt flesh knew the driver had been killed in the fire.
