The mechanics class of 1966...

Group photos are a traditional end-of-season routine in Formula 1.

In 1966, renowned F1 Swiss reporter Adriano Cimarosti brought together all the mechanics from each team for a group photo pose.

Ferrari, Lotus, BRM, Cooper, Brabham, Honda, McLaren and Eagle's entire workforce - 28 people - are in this shot.

Compare that with today's staff numbers which often exceed 80 mechanics and engineers per team at each race!
