Patrick Depailler racing at Long Beach, 1978. One of the most satisfying camera angles to watch Mr. Depailler doing his magic with the Tyrrell 008 — the last Tyrrell he ever drove. What I especially like about this footage, aside from the obvious, is that it’s pretty easy to spot why Formula 1 was so dangerous back then, even in 1978. You get the “kart feeling” and instability just by watching the action, except the speeds are as mental as todays’. It is quite something, isn’t it?
