F1 Zeltweg 1970

I apologize for the poor quality of this picture, but it is of a certain historical value. It shows Austrian F1 pilot Jochen Rindt (Lotus Ford) in his last F1 race on August, 16th 1970 on the Oesterreichring in Zeltweg/Austria. A few weeks later, on September, 5th 1970, Jochen Rindt died of an accident during a training session of Italian Grand Prix in Monza. He was the only F1 pilot becoming world champion posthumously, and I hope, he will remain the only one. DNF due to engine blow-up.
