This week in 1970 finds Jochen Rindt and his Lotus 72-Ford winning the French Grand Prix at Charade Circuit in Clermont-Ferrand, France.
Posting a 7.61-second winning margin over second place Chris Amon, Rindt surpassed pole-position leader Jacky Ickx and Ferrari after Ickx’s inlet valve problems forced him to retire about 14 laps in.
Rindt would duke it out with Jean-Pierre Beltoise for the lead throughout the race, until Beltoise experienced tire problems which allowed Rindt to leap to first with Amon right behind. The race would ultimately finish that way with Jack Brabham and Denis Hulme rounding up third and fourth place respectively.
The race results secured Jochen Rindt’s first place lead in the driver’s championship with six races to go in the season, with an eight point lead over both Brabham and Jackie Stewart, who were tied for second place.
