Karl Jochen Rindt (born 18 April 1942; died 5 September 1970) was a German-born racing driver who represented Austria during his career. He became the only driver to posthumously win the Formula One World Drivers' Championship (in 1970), after being killed in practice for the Italian Grand Prix.

Overall, he competed in 62 Grands Prix, winning six and achieving 13 podium finishes. During his time in Formula One, he was involved, alongside Jackie Stewart, in a campaign to improve safety.

Rindt was also highly successful in other single-seater formulae, as well as sports car racing. In 1965 he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, driving a Ferrari 250LM in partnership with Masten Gregory. Rindt left behind his wife, Nina, and a daughter, Natasha.

NotesEdit

^1 – Rindt raced with an Austrian licence, but had a German passport and never held Austrian citizenship.[6]
^2 – Until 1990, not all points scored by a driver contributed to their final World Championship tally (see list of points scoring systems for more information). Numbers without parentheses are Championship points; numbers in parentheses are total points scored.
