hmmm... don't know why but looks a bit strange to me. I hope some expert comes here and tell me why I am wrong.

I don't know for certain but it appears exaggerated. There should be wall flex, yes, but I don't think that much at that low speed. At high speed in a banked turn, sure, but that seems excessive unless the tires are low on pressure and judging by how they appear they aren't underinflated.
I'm far from an expert but a 60's tyres with low sidewall rigidity,high profile and full lock with full slip angle. Looks OK to me.
Tyres move a lot on the rim when you add pressure directly from the side at low speed as there is rotation to stiffen it up with the centrifugal force. Push your parked car sideways and you can see how much it flexes, or at the yearly MOT check when they check the front suspension.
