I wonder how they would cope today with only 4 people servicing the car, I bet it wouldn't be far short of the 60 seconds.

OK, no wizzy tools either, knock on wheel nut and a lump hammer.

Should be mandatory in F1.
They should also have to wear grease-smeared overalls and have 2 days of stubble and beer-bellies*.

Except McLaren, of course. Sorry, Ron.

It's better for "the show" than deliberately making skid blocks spark, which will be next along with trumpet exhausts.

Clearly accurate steering geometry was not a major issue if they were using hammers to take a wheel off and put it back on.

Leaf springs and recirculating balls were pretty tough.
