During 1969/1970 I lived in Heilbronn, near Hockenheimring, and visited often. Saw 1970 German Grand Prix, but stadiums and course different, then.

Stadium included dirt mound, where concrete stands are today.

Course included long fast straights through forest, instead of chicanes, barriers, clearings, etc.

People would sit on fences, in trees, to watch.

I think the aero downforce is so great they can’t get off the ground?

i guess that's possible, but if they did manage to get off the ground, they might fly for quite a way too

remember the design flaw with cars going airborne at Le Mans a few years ago....think it was Mercedes.

 Thanks for the link...but for Firefox it takes a "plug-in of questionable repute"!   ;-)

“VLC” plug-in? But then I found a “sub-page” of your link with “Flash” streams...they would work, but after 25 years in the TV business I am not a big fan of copyright-busting feeds. Left recently when the company went bankrupt. Anyway here is the F1 “sub-page”: http://www.vipbox.tv/sports/formula-1.html

Holy $hit, they're going 306 and it's only 22 degrees? I was stationed in Germany for 18 months and I don't remember it being that cold in July? And wow, they only did 226 in Indianapolis qualifying for the 500. No wonder F1 fans think Indycar drivers are such pussies!

eventhough Sab was penalized for his off track maneuver, i never was a fan of the DRS rules, i.e. you can pass but not defend, now more than ever i think they should be banned for the last five laps...

if you can't pass on your own without help so be it
