Gestalt of 1978

One of my favorite internet videos, a hazy triple-digit drive through the Belgian forest by Niki Lauda. The sound, the fog, the way you can see how the car moves around under power. Lauda was undoubtedly a great driver, and watching him smoothly take the car through the rolling course sometimes sliding in oversteer is gorgeous, but it’s the feel, the essence, the Gestalt of the video that gets me.

    Striking too how much it seemed like a video game.
