The Monaco Grand Prix on May 10th 1970 is remembered as one of the most dramatic races in the history of Formula 1.
With 20 of the 80 laps to go, Jack Brabham held a comfortable lead of 14 seconds from Jochen Rindt in the type 49C. Rindt drove 'flat out' in a mesmerizing display of skill and speed and was right on the tail of the Brabham BT33 as they lapped the De Tomaso of Piers Courage, approaching the final corner of the race Jack made a costly mistake and slid into the barriers, allowing Jochen to take the last Grand Prix victory for a Lotus 49.
A remarkable performance from Rindt who set a new lap record of 1 min 23.2 on this, the very last lap. #sports #motorsport #motorracing #motorsports #racingdriver #racinglegend #f1 #fast #formula1 #formulaone #gp #grandprix #monacogp1970 #monaco
