Past Gas #195: Jochen Rindt: The Driver Who Won an F1 Championship Posthumously

By Donut Media

August 2nd, 1970, Hockenheim, Germany. 28-year-old Jochen Rindt stands atop the winner’s podium, holding the German Grand Prix championship trophy. His wife and young daughter stand proudly at his side. He looks across the crowd of cheering Germans and thinks back to the 1961 German Grand Prix - when he was one of them. A schoolboy watching his first ever F1 race, realizing for the first time that he wanted to become a driver. Nine years later, he was on top of the racing world, poised to become world champion. Little did he know that this would be his last time standing atop the podium. Today on Past Gas, the story of Jochen Rindt. You asked for it -- and we listened. We're filming Past Gas again!
