Friday Flying Lap: 1978 Monza F1 practice laps with Jacques Laffitte

I happened upon this video during my lunchtime web-surfing. This is in car on car footage of Jacques Lafitte practicing at Monza in 1978 with his Ligier Matra JS9 F1 car. The Matra V12 makes a glorious sound and powered Jacques to a 4th place finish in the race. I love the amount of dancing the car is doing, look for the quick steering inputs Lafitte is making as he’s powering through turns.
