AND FINALLY Jochen Rindt wins at Monaco

It all happened 50 years ago in what many agree was the most dramatic Grand Prix of all time. 

Sunday 10 May 1970. Underrated, and officially the Lotus number two, Rindt (Lotus 49) from a poor grid position pursued race leader Jack Brabham out of the tunnel on the final lap, the Australian going straight on at what was known as the Gasworks Harpin.

Sadly Rindt was to lose his life at Monza 5 September in the Lotus 72 during practice for the Italian Grand Prix becoming the first and only posthumous World Motor Racing Champion.
