Normally when a Formula 1 driver takes us on a lap of a circuit, it's done with the visual aid of a car actually traveling the track – the driver narrates what we see on screen. In the good old days before every car sported cameras, however, it wasn't like that.

Graham Hill, double World Championship winner and father of Damon Hill, was asked to describe a lap of Monaco in 1968. He won the race five times in his tragically shortened career, and the so-called King of Monaco explained a lap the good old-fashioned way: he told a story and took time to focus on the good bits. Watch him recount it in the video below.
