It looks like Stewart was tucked up behind Rindt for a good many laps there. If that happened today, all we would hear about is how it's impossible to overtake, that the regulations need to be looked at, and that the show needs to be improved.
Do we know if Lap Charts exist from these days? Can't imagine there was too much overtaking near the front, as Stewart was the only one to finish the entire race distance.
Hehe. A great battle though, they left the rest miles behind.
I think there were a few times when Jackie got past going down to Stowe, but Jochen had got back past by Woodcote so it didn't show on the lap chart. Rindt eventually had to pit with a loose rear wing, and subsequently for fuel, hence Stewart's winning margin was much greater than it should have been.
I have got a load of old lap charts, including that one, but they don't indicate pitstops and hence aren't a lot of use for overtaking stats
