The 1976 Japanese Grand Prix is an incredibly memorable race, which gave James Hunt his World Championship at the end of one of the sport's tightest and most popular rivalries.

In a season marred by controversy, disqualifications and protests - not to mention Niki Lauda's frankly unbelievable comeback after nearly losing his life at the Nurburgring - it all came down to an absolute washout of a Grand Prix.

While the 1976 race is fantastic in its own merits, and the scenes in the 2013 film Rush were highly entertaining, there's something extremely cool about Matt Amys' last video.

He's brought us classic F1 with modern graphics - and vice versa - but these race highlights bring the best of 70s Grand Prix racing into the 21st century, and once again change a fresh, new feel to the clips many F1 fans have already watched religiously.

The yellow flag warnings, the circuit infographics and the modern replays give just a glimpse of how far broadcasting within F1 has come.

You also can't help but notice how much the attrition rate has changed dramatically from the '70s - highlighting how far engineering has come too.

Yes, this race is an exception because it was practically racing underwater, but the difference between eras is still notable.

Not to mention the fact that a race in those conditions would never go ahead in the modern era, which is probably for the best.

Anyway, enough rambling, watch the video here:
