ewww! Doesn't look like the wheel of an F1 car though in the picture?

Perhaps we should knock this on the head before it gets any worse :]

Why are they using such a modern style of helmet as well? Big error.

I wonder if it's a scene from earlier in Hunt's career? Perhaps Cevert? I noticed a smashed up car with a blue rear wing in one of the other photos...

But I thought the film was focusing on the Lauda/Hunt battle only? So I dunno.

as far as i'm aware the film is meant to fill in a bit of the back story, but i don't know who that's meant to be. i'm pretty sure it shouldn't be francios cevert, that set up isn't what i envisaged from reading jackie stewart's account of his death. obviously i could be wrong.

That certianly looks like Cevert's car. According to wikipedia "Cevert died instantly of massive injuries inflicted by the barrier, which cut his body in half between his neck and hip". Gruesome stuff.

It looks like a Tyrrel but it isn´t a helmet in Ceverts livery, its a "Hollywood" version of Ceverts crash :( Such s shame he should have listened to Jackie and used a different gear RIP

The F1 driver who was decapitated was Hellmuth Koinigg and it was at Watkins Glen in 1974 so the livery is completely wrong as it was in fact Black. He was one of the back markers that day and was not going very fast when his suspension failed. Unfortunately, as was typical of the day, the Armco barriers were rather poorly secured and as he slammed into the first one it broke and twisted and tragically the edge of the barrier sliced clean through his neck, decapitating him. The picture below shows it. Years ago I saw resolution images of this tragic scene but they no longer show up online. The first image was taken immediately upon impact with the 2nd barrier and you can see his hand still up in the air as nerve impulse had not yet left his body. In the second pic his arm is down.

And they didn't whine and complain like big babies. They appreciated the fact that they had an opportunity that was almost impossible for anyone to ever be given. Earned or not, they all knew it was a privilege. Special times back then.

Yeah, during the 1982 drivers strike, at Kyalami, I think.

Based on the car and the type of crash we see in some other photos, I'd think it's a safe bet.

But having a severed head on the track? Starting to bring too much Hollywood into the film, i fear. :?

Raikonen is the only missing surviving WDC. I think he 'declined the invite', which in other words means he couldn't be arsed to show up. Shame.

Random picture of the day:

Jean-Pierre Jarrier in #55 Lotus, replacing deceased Peterson, lapping third Brabham #66 of Nelson Piquet while in lead, at the Canadian GP that was won by Gilles Villeneuve after Jarrier's car gave up due to oil leak.

Image
Jarrier was very unlucky. He started the race from pole and dominated till the car gave up.
At times, teams where using third driver, mostly toward the end of the season, to race in spare chassis. Along with Brabham, Renault, Williams and Mclaren did bring 3rd car to the grid in late 70's or early 80's occasionally.

Random picture of the day:

After colliding at Fuji, Japan, at the end of season 1977, Gilles Villeneuve and Ronnie Peterson had another collision at Brazilian GP in 1978, a second round of the championship. Since the race was held on 29th January, they were both running last years versions of Ferrari (312T2) and Lotus (Type 78), in anticipation of the current models. It was lap 15 when Gilles and Ronnie came together, effectively ending the Ronnie's race.
Image
Ronnie, the pole-sitter, obviously wasn't happy with the outcome, and made sure that Gilles knows it.
Gilles ended the race 20 laps later.
