Jo Siffert (Lotus 24-BRM) leads Lorenzo Bandini (BRM P57) at the 1963 British Grand Prix held at Silverstone.

See the difference in style (open full picture) between the two drivers: Siffert, steering his very neutral Lotus into the apex with a tiny bit of understeer, and Bandini on the other hand, controlling his oversteering BRM, trying to keep up with the pace of the Swiss driver.

The 82-lap race was won by the works Lotus driver Jim Clark (picture below) after he started from pole position. Jo Siffert (Lotus) had to retire on lap 66 (gearbox), and Lorenzo Bandini (Scuderia Centro Sud BRM) finished an excellent 5th, one lap down.
