I just love the Monaco Grand Prix so much you guys.

"During the Grand Prix weekend, the yacht owners are asked to push heir ships an additional fifteen feet out into the harbor, away from the road. I guess the organizers think it’d make a difference if a car went in the water."

— Steve Matchett on NBC Sports during practice for the Monaco Grand Prix

I’m thinkin’ Lotus will bust out the Daft Punk car livery, mechanic’s overalls, and driver’s helmets for the race on Sunday. They’re just gonna keep teasing us until then.

It’s a big weekend. Two-thirds of the Motorsports Triple Crown go off on Sunday: the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500. If you need me I’ll be in front of the tv, with a brief break between the two races for some hot grilling action.
In the meantime, check out this photo of the setup process at Monaco. If I could, please let me direct your attention to the bright red old-school Mini with the Union Jack on its roof. Compare it to the downright massive-looking SmartCar next to it.
That’s what’s up.

Things to note:

  • Written by David E. Davis, Jr.
  • Ford GT-40 camera car
  • Impossibility of telling the actors & crew from the actual race drivers & crew members
  • All-around late 1960’s badassery
Formula 1, now with added interpretive dance.

Is that a suede upholstered seat? That’s totally awesome.

I’d like to think I helped pay for a little tiny bit of that car.
Chicken and waffles are goooooood.

1968 Spa-Francorchamps Lotus 49B  Graham Hill

Oh no, don’t mind me, cows. I’m just on the way to winning the 1968 World Championship.
Unfortunately, Mr. Hill’s race would come to a very premature finish here: his Lotus’ halfshaft would break on lap five.
Interestingly, weather reports on the day of the race say that it was overcast, but dry. However, when the length of the nearly nine mile long course is taken into account, it is possible that conditions varied along the track which would explain the clearly wet racing surface.

I didn’t see the race, I know nothing about the outcome of the race, but I am led to believe that Fernando won. Also, Formula 1 cars under lights at night races are awesome.

2008 Monaco Grand Prix Historique

If you’re going to watch this at all, you really only have to watch the first three minutes. The Stones, vintage Formula 1 cars and Monaco make this video look like it’s straight out of 1976.
