    We need the other 80 minutes of the race remastered, too.

    The course was nicer back then with smooth flowing lines with properly sized cars.

    The gorgeous 156…..hero (champion) to zero (wins) in one season.


    It sounds like nobody edited the script….Was the sound dubbed? Too much tire squeal, even for treaded tires.

    It was mesmerizing to watch...just from a technical aspect of computers cleaning up the footage.

    ...and it's a captivating race. The tunnel is so short!!

    Narration by Burl Ives, he did another for an earlier Monaco GP. The beauty and charm of Monaco from that time are lost forever. Thanks for posting this.

    I wondered who that is. I couldn’t place the voice, though.

    That is one of the most stunning remastering jobs I've ever seen. It's hard to believe that that video is 62 years old!

    I recognized his voice from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer TV special (family played it a lot growing up).

    Burl Ives had such a good voice I guess we can excuse him for referring to Graham Hill as a Ferrari driver and butchering Jack Brabham's name.

    The Ferraris were still competitive early in the season, but as it went on they became less and less so, especially after the Lotus 25 appeared. Clark was quite unlucky not to win the '62 championship.

    Yep, Jim Clark was going to be WDC in 1962 as he was leading in South Africa, until he suffered an oil leak.
    Graham Hill, who was shadowing him until then, inherited the lead, won the GP and took the title.

    If I could go back in time - I'd love to go back to Monaco in those days. just to be able to see the cars with no barriers and walk the streets... it would be amazing.

    It certainly was a different experience back in the 60's, and I feel fortunate to have lived it. I watched the 1963 Monaco race sitting with friends on the stone wall right before the entry to the Station Hairpin (later replaced by the Loews Hotel). The old stone wall is still there, and it was so close to the track that we could see into the cockpits and watch the drivers downshift into the hairpin. During practice to watch from different vantage points we simply walked along the sidewalks, with the cars passing just a few feet away.

    Up until the early 1980's with the right credentials you could still walk along the sidewalks next to the track. My favorite watching point was on the sidewalk leading up the hill just after Saint-Devote. Also watching in front of the Tick Tock wth the cars coming down the hill after the Casino turn was pretty cool. Sadly, those days are long gone.
