With the passing of Formula One champion Phil Hill we should take a look back at the time when racing was full of innovation and driving was done without the benefit of traction control, radial tires, or automated manual transmissions. Helmets were recycled polo helmets and seat belts were distained. Drivers drank the champaign instead of spraying the podium (thanks Dan Gurney). Driving suits were not covered with advertising and cars carried their country colors. Fifty years ago it cost $50,000 to field an F1 team and today it takes $300,000,000.
