Overview

Jochen Rindt was two people. To those he disliked, he was arrogant and dismissive. To those he chose to befriend, a warm, humorous character who liked to laugh and joke yet who needed nobody’s help. To countless race fans across the globe, he was simply the man who could do the impossible.
