During the 1970 British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch, Jochen Rindt in the Lotus 72 leads Jack Brabham in his Brabham BT33. Brabham chased Rindt all race and eventually past him, only to run dry on fuel on the last lap. Tragically Rindt was killed practicing for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza later in the season but had amassed enough points to become the sport's only posthumous world champion.
