The glory days.

There's something sexy and alluring about the raw passion and danger that came with the primitive days of Formula 1. 

Rainer W. Schlegelmilch's photographic book The Golden Age Of Formula 1, released last year, has given us a rare insight into the turbulent and high-octane world of vintage cars, iconic champions and raw, heart-stopping victories seen in the 1960's era of Formula 1.

The book features all the big names such as Jim Clark, Jacky Ickx and Australia's own Jack Brabham. Check out all the thrills and spills in the gallery below.
