Perhaps it was easier to win
championships in those days. All we had to do was beat Colin [Chapman] really!
Ken Tyrrell, team owner, discussing winning the World
Championship with Jackie Stewart in his own car.
"After the warm-up lap, Jackie
thought there was something amiss with the brakes, and the mechanics found the brake
balance bar was actually broken! No time to do anything about it of course, so he had to
do the whole race - at Monaco, of all places - with front brakes only. Afterwards we took
out the rear pads, and they were like new, untouched..."
