Monza F1 GP practice, 1970 Jochen Rindt, lying near death in his car right after his hard crash in a Gold Leaf Lotus 72C Gold Leaf. An apparent brake failure led to Rindt losing control of his car in a fast corner, then plowing into and under a barrier, then spinning aimlessly. There was no fire, but the German died instantly of severe neck injuries.
