Great man, great constructor and as much as I understand great personality !

I will never forget to watch him live in TV in 1970 in Monte Carlo at the GP, when in pole position he lost that position in the very last curve in the very last lap against Jochen Rindt when braking (too) hard in to the corner. I was shocked, because Jochen Rindt won and my real idol at the time, Jacky Stewart, then world Champion, lost further points to Rindt within the 1970 season.
