quiet before …. the storm

Jochen Rindt in the paddock with his crew working on the Gold Leaf Lotus-Ford 49B & during raceday  at Montjuich Park for the 1969 Spanish Grand Prix, when the high placed wings on his Lotus collapsed & forced him in a major crash

this was the last race where high placed wings were allowed, both Rindt & his teammate Hill suffered major crashes, luckily without too much personal injury, after this race they were deemed too dangerous by the FIA
