The 28-year-old Rindt, whowas born in Mainz, Germany, but drove with an Austrian li-cense, was leading for the World's Driving Cham-pionship by a wide margin when death came.An official said Rindt would be the world champion nextseason posthumously if Jack Brabham, next in standingsbehind him, fails to beat Kindt's standings.Rindt was killed moments after the second session ofpractice began for Sunday's 41st Italian Grand Prix.

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. "The car went sideways all(Cent.
