If you discovered Formula One at any point in the past 20 years, it comes as something of a shock to discover that the winners' trophies were not always as visually uninspiring as they are now.
There's nothing especially wrong with the silverware Kimi Raikkonen is holding above his head on page 43 of Bruce Jones's new book 'Grand Prix Racing Yesterday & Today' - it's a rather nice silver replica of a modern steering wheel, the mirrored finish broken only by the colours of a flag to indicate that the prize was won in Hungary.
But it looks decidedly beige when lined up against the remarkable trophy that Jochen Rindt is holding on the facing page, having just won the 1970 British GP - an extraordinarily ornate sculpture that's about the size of his torso and looks like it would take some effort to lift. It may be a touch tacky, but it looks like something worth winning and it would certainly stand out on the mantelpiece, assuming that the shelf didn't collapse under the weight.
So Kimi's trophy is kind of like the modern Nurburgring. It's quite good in its own right, but the problem starts when you compare with what is next door.
