1973: "Reign Of Stewart"
The fourth in the Brunswick series of DVDs covers Jackie Stewart’s final championship victory - and final season.
It was a year punctuated by some brilliant drives and some horrible accidents. Roger Williamson and Francois Cevert both lost their lives.
But this excellent documentary presents even the more harrowing footage objectively and responsibly.
As with several other DVDs in this series the entire season isn’t covered. There isn’t any coverage of first round of the year at Buenos Aires.
It’s unfortunate - the Brunswick crew simply didn’t capture a lot of material on their various trips to F1 races. But this particularly DVD features more of the year’s highlights than some of the others.
We see the infamous pile-up at Silverstone triggered by Jody Scheckter, for example, and Emerson Fittipaldi’s retirement in the French Grand Prix.
Fittipaldi was injured later in the season and an insightful piece of footage captures him being administered a painkiller and told ‘not to drive too fast’! In another scene Lotus boss Colin Chapman whips an unauthorised Goodyear cap from Fittipaldi’s head after his victory in Brazil.
1973 Emerson Fittipaldi was the reigning champion. But there was no question regarding the intention of his biggest rival, Jackie Stewart, who had lost his title to the big Brazilian and wanted it back.
It was Fittipaldi who laid down the gauntlet, winning three out of the first four races. However, Stewart refused to buckle under pressure, and consistent displays of driving genius with the Tyrrell wondercar brought him right back into contention. By the halfway point of the season, Stewart led the Championship by a single point.
From this, he turned on the style, transforming his slender lead into something that was simply unassailable. He retired from Grand Prix racing at the end of the season as champion ? with his position as one of the all-time greats assured.
There was more to the season than the battle between the big guns. Safety regulations made a big impact on car design ? but not on safety ? as fatalities unfortunately returned to the championship.
