    He was brilliant, Guy Ritchie will make it bloodthirsty but he's a great director

    Nope, they're not especially large, the clever thing about the Cosworth head is the included valve angle - it completely changed accepted thinking in 1967 and was subsequently copied by every F1 manufacturer.

    FYI big valves does not equal more power, there is massive complexity to gas flow, valve timing, intake shape & length and exhaust tuning.

    Stopped watching when the presenter said “lucky they were wearing the correct safety gear”!?!? That’s not luck, that’s normal racing practice!

    Lampredi's hemi heads were wide angle, copied from the pre-war Peugeot twin cam. His SOHC and pushrod heads had the valves in a straight line.
