A 'Halo' of a very different kind...

Enjoy this unobstructed view of Clay Regazzoni' sitting in his office back in the 70s, the aluminum cockpit of a Ferrari 312T.

Surrounded by cables, a few water pipes and the usual amenities of the day, drivers raced exposed and vulnerable to the ever-present dangers of the sport.

Their courage, spirit and mettle were made of the right stuff and embodied their aura, or a 'Halo' of a very different kind than the one which inhabits F1 today.
