Grand Prix Problems
|Caption||Grand Prix Problems. Every car, no matter how skilfully it is designed or how expensive it may be, has its breaking point at which its components fail under the stress of speed. One of the dangers of high speed racing is the car's tendency to fly like an aeroplane. Graham Hill encountered this during practice runs for the German Grand Prix in 1966 (see top left). Wings were attached to cars in 1969 to improve road handling, but the wing on Graham Hill's car collapsed in the 1969 Grand Prix, and he crashed. Jochen Rindt, with a similar fault, struck Hill's car. Original artwork.|
