1973: Jackie Stewart had decided, early in the season, this would be his last year of racing. He kept this decision secret, not wanting his wife Helen to suffer while counting the races down. The death of so many drivers and friends, amongst them Clark and Rindt, had been too heavy…

Jackie Stewart retired in sadness, with the death of team mate and friend François Cevert during practice for the last race of the season at Watkins Glen, having won the 1973 World Championship.

Career: 99 Grand Prix starts and 27 victories (a record at the time).
