This 1:18 Le Mans Miniatures Jochen Rindt figurine is of the highest quality and excellent detail. Being professionally hand painted and made of Resin, Jochen Rindt was a German driver whom participated in several races such as 24 Hours of Le Mans, winning the 1965 Ferrari 250LM race. He started his first Formula 1 season at Cooper, who teamed up with Maserati in 1966. In 1969, Rindt joined the Lotus team, proving to be a worth successor of Jim Clark who tragically died the year before on the Hockenheim circuit. In 1970, Jochen Rindt won 5 races, but was killed during the preliminary tests of the Italian GP Monza at age 28. His lead in the championship was so considerable he could have finished the season as a World Champion, being the only driver to date to have been crowned World Champion posthumously. Rindt as been reproduced according to the famous photo taken by Rainer W. Schlegermich. He is sitting in a camping seat, a cigarette in his hand and a bottle of soda waiting at his feet during the middle of a discussion with Colin Chapman, the Lotus Team Manager.
