Niki Lauda on Murray Walkers F1 Greats
Niki Lauda presents many images to race fans the world over.He is The Man
Who Came Back From The Dead, following his astonishing recovery from the
fiery accident in the German Grand Prix of 1976 that so nearly killed him.
He is a triple World Champion. The man who advised Ferrari in his
retirement. The man who quit racing to start his own airline, and came back
to win again.
Lauda is all of these men, and more.

He was the dominant driver of his era, winning two World Championships, in
1963 and 1965. At the time of his death, he had won more Grand Prix races
(25) and achieved more Grand Prix pole positions (33) than any other
driver. He also competed in the Indianapolis 500 five times, and won it
once, in 1965.
Stirling Moss on Murray Walkers F1 Greats
Sir Stirling Moss OBE is arguably the greatest all-round racing driver of
all time and a true icon of the motor racing world.His early career was
meteoric, with works drives for both Jaguar and HWM. 1955 was a seminal
year; he was signed by Mercedes-Benz to partner the legendary World
Champion Juan Manuel Fangio. That year saw Stirling shadow the great
Argentine in most Grands Prix, beating him to win the British GP at
Aintree. Famously in that same year, he also won the incredible Mille
Miglia, at an average speed of 97.9mph over the 1,000 miles raced, the
Targa Florio and the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood.
F1 - 1969 Monaco GP - Race report
The entry for Monaco was much as normal although Jochen Rindt was still
recovering from breaking his nose in his crash in Barcelona and so Team
Lotus ran Richard Attwood as his replacement alongside Graham Hill. The
field was bolstered by the reappearance of Silvio Moser in an old Brabham
and Vic Elford running in an old Cooper-Maserati entered, aptly, by Antique
Automobiles. There had been considerable worry expressed since the crashes
in Barcelona about the high rear wings used on the cars and after the first
practice the CSI held a meeting and decided on an immediate ban on the
grounds of safety. The first session times were canceled and the qualifying
process started all over again. There were some gripes from the teams but
everyone got down to business and it was Jackie Stewart's Matra which
emerged on pole, ahead of Chris Amon's Ferrari. Jean-Pierre Beltoise in the
second Matra was third on the grid, ahead of Graham Hill while Jo Siffert
(Walker-Durlacher Lotus) and John Surtees (BRM) shared the third row. The
Brabhams of Jacky Ickx and Jack Brabham were on the fourth row, just ahead
of Piers Courage in Frank Williams's customer BT26.
Stewart took the lead at the start with Amon in pursuit. Beltoise was under
pressure from Hill and the Lotus driver moved to third on the third lap. By
lap 10 Stewart had a 10-second advantage. In the midfield Surtees suffered
a gearbox failure in the tunnel and was hit by Brabham. Both drivers
escaped injury. Six laps later Amon's Ferrari retired with a differential
failure and on lap 21 Beltoise's Matra suffered a driveshaft failure and
retired from third place. A lap later the leader Stewart had an identical
problem with his Matra and retired. This left Hill in the lead with a 12
second advantage over Ickx and Courage. The battle for second place
continued until the 49th lap when the Belgian retired with a rear
suspension failure, leaving Courage to finish an impressive second while
Siffert picked up third.
Alberto Ascari on Murray Walkers F1 Greats
The son of one of Italy's great pre-war drivers, Alberto Ascari went on to
become one of Formula One racing's most dominant and best-loved champions.
Noted for the careful precision and finely-judged accuracy that made him
one of the safest drivers in a most dangerous era, he was also notoriously
superstitious and took great pains to avoid tempting fate.
