On September 5, 1970, in preparation for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, Lotus driver and Formula One World Championship leader Jochen Rindt crashed during practice. He sadly died on impact. By the end of the season, no one had been able to usurp his points lead, and he became F1's first and only posthumous World Champion.
