Death of a Champion:
There was drame at the Italian Grand Prix. During practice, when he was beginning to brake at the approach of the Parabolica curve, Jochen Rindt lost control of his Lotus, thought by many to be because of mechanical failure, and the car plunged under the safety barrier. Rindt died, cut down in his prime. The winner of five of the preceding Grand Prix, he was assured of the world title, which was to be given to him posthumously.

Controversy then ensued as to how well Lotus racing cars were constructed. Ferrar's superiority was confirmed in the Italian Grand Prix, Fegazzoni, in only his fifth Formula 1 Grand Prix race, took on Stewart, Beltoise, Hulme and Stommelen to drive to triumph in an atmsphere of general delirium. Two weeks later SEFAC Ferrari chalked up its third consecutive victory in the Canadian Grand Prix, where Ickx zoomed home in from of the same Regazzoni. The Lotus team had abstained from the race.
