  • Rindt retires as Stewart eases home
  • June 21, 1969: Jackie Stewart's third win in four races at the Dutch Grand Prix extended his lead in the drivers' championship, but as at Monaco five weeks earlier, much of the weekend was spent rowing over the cars themselves rather than the race.

  • Spanish Grand Prix
  • Stewart profits from Lotus failures
  • May 4, 1969: Jackie Stewart won his second race in succession, but the Spanish Grand Prix will be best remembered for two almost identical crashes involving the Lotuses of Graham Hill and Jochen Rindt which could have left either dead.

  • March 1, 1969: The season-opener was a continuation of where 1968 had left off, with Jackie Stewart in Tyrrell's Matra-Cosworth turning the tables on Hill to win the South African Grand Prix.
