On his third lap, he wasjust beginning to brake for
the Parabolica curve whensomething apparently broke
on his car about 600 yardsfrom the curve.
Only Friday, Rindt said,"The fastest car into the Pa-
rabolica has the best chanceof winning at Monza if it
comes to a last-lap showdownlike it did last year. I want to
get in some good timesthrough there today."
Jackie Stewart of Scotlandoutdueled Rindt into the Pa-
rabolica last year, and Ste-wart went on to win.
Denny Hulme of New Zea-land, who was just behind
Rindt when the accident oc-curred, said the car began to
fishtail and the Austrianfought in vain for control.
"The Lotus veered left, hitthe guardrail at 150 or 160
miles per hour, bouncedacross the track and hit the
opposite guardrail," Hulmesaid.
