  • Is it me or does it look like a single seater track day car. I think the skills required to drive then, makes those F1 drivers better drivers in general than today's F1 drivers

  • They say that drive an F1 car nowdays is easier compared to old cars, but man, actual cars are significant faster and just the steering wheel is more complicated than the whole car of the video, imagine adjusting some input in that steering wheel while trying to overtake at 350km/h and feeling 5G of pressure...crazy

  • Not the first onboard camera in an F1 race, but the first live onboard. Phil Hill had a camera mounted to the nose of his car for the first lap of the 1966 Belgian GP to help film Grand Prix.

  • Benny Parsons stock car during the 1979 Daytona 500 was probably the first live onboard camera during a race. Wasn't mounted on the outside of the car, but in car instead. Big camera, but was technologically advanced back in the day.

  • Fun fact: the 1985 Renault was 1.5 seconds slower than the 1984 car. That's why it's chasing a Minardi in this clip. Renault wisely left at the end of the year.

  • Title is very misleading as this certainly is not the first onboard camera in an F1 race. Phil Hill drove camera cars in the 1966 Monaco and Belgian GP's and there is footage of Alain Prost driving a Renault around Monaco in 1982.

  • Some interesting stuff going on with the engine there. Ah, I just looked up Hesnault's result and he retired on lap 8 with clutch problems, that would explain the weirdness that is especially prominent at the end. Regardless this is fantastic, a absolute dream would be to have the whole 8 laps from the start to the failure. It would give a amazing insight into what the drivers do and how they deal with a failing car.
