The look of Formula One in 1972. McLaren’s Barry Sullivan, left, and Peter Davis standing guard over Denny Hulme’s race-ready Yardley Team McLaren-Ford M19C.
One lone mechanic. One engineer. One journalist. One photographer.
Forty four years ago, looking at the starting grid for the 1972 United States Grand Prix, no one could have dreamed of the changes that would occur to this team, to this sport, and to the drivers and their machines by the end of the decade, not to mention the world-wide business spectacle of Formula One today.
Nothing will ever be both this simple and this profound again.
I made this image with a Nikon FTN, and a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens, using Kodak Tri-X film rated at 400 ASA, 1/125 second at f/8, late in the afternoon of October 8, 1972, at the Grand Prix Circuit at Watkins Glen, NY, USA.
