A Lotus 72 going through the Parabolica at Monza, with a Ferrari 312 hot in pursuit.
EDIT: After some discussion with fuckyeahlotus, we’ve figured out that it is actually Hockenheim, which would pin this photo to 1970 when the Nurburgring was boycotted on the grounds of safety.

Great combo, right there. Two of the maestros of Monaco, Hill and Schumacher. A collected 10 wins at the Monte Carlo circuit, five a piece. Only Ayrton Senna has won more than either of these two, with six.

there was a time, when regulations didn’t change every year. So F1 teams keep developing the same car for years…

The revolutionary wedge shape of the Lotus 72 gave it massive longevity and won Chapman and co. two drivers titles at the hands of the late Jochen Rindt and a pair of Brazilian sideburns nicknamed “Emmo”, as well as three constructors titles.
Other famous names to have driven the Lotus 72 include Super Swede Ronnie Peterson, British driver John Watson and Belgian Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx.
