Cars werent reliable those days unlike now when you know you would be very unlucky not to finish

He raced at Monaco in '67, as well as Indy, retiring with broken suspension like in '66.

Chapmans cars were not really ready for Monaco in early 60ís
Moss won in 61 in an 18 but that was it until Hillís win.

Moss won it twice in a Lotus in '60 and '61. The first driver to win back to back.

I think Stirling himself said the 61 Monaco GP and the 55 Mille Miglia were his greatest drives and itís hard to disagree there

Would have thought the 61 race at the Ring would be in there. Better than Monte Carlo?

Both were great in that he beat the dominant Ferraris, but at Monaco he admits he was on the limit lap after lap. Now that takes some dedication, especially at Monte Carlo

Masta Kink alone puts Monaco in the shade.

Comparing modern drivers to those of the late 60s is like comparing Chinese Checkers to playing Hopscotch on a minefield.

Now weíre at Francochamps!
I went to 65 Belgium GP and at end of first lap Clark was way ahead of Stewart who was way ahead of rest.
Not bad as he detested the place!
