A bout of Rosberg family nostalgia in Monaco

The Rosberg family - and indeed many race fans - took a fine trip down memory lane in Monaco on Thursday.

The father and son world champion combo treated everyone to an emotional few laps of nostalgia onboard their respective F1 championship winning cars.

World champion Keke Rosberg - all suited and booted in period overalls, and wearing a genuine 1980 bell helmet - drove his 1982 Williams FW07C for the first time in over 35 years, flanked by 2016 title winner Nico Rosberg in his Mercedes W06.

Beyond the sheer excitement of watching the family roar its way around the Principality, the demo was also a reminder of how good a Grand Prix car looked - and sounded - almost four decades ago.
