On this day in F1
Today in 1970 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen decided the world championship in strange and poignant fashion. Two races earlier championship leader Jochen Rindt had been killed during practice at Monza, and when Jacky Ickx won the following round in Canada it left him with a chance of passing Rindt in the points standings before the season ended.
At Watkins Glen, however, Ickx finished a distant fourth. Emerson Fittipaldi took his first victory, driving for Rindt’s former team Lotus, and by doing so secured the title for the posthumous champion.
