“Hockenheim is emotion for me. I drove my first race there in 1960 I won the European Cup there in 1967, I stood on the next to Jochen Rindt on the podium in 1968.

But I think above all of Jim Clark and his fatal crash in 1968. The night before, we both went to the ZDF Sportstudio. Tapping me on the shoulder, he said “See you tomorrow, Kurt,”.

Twelve hours later Jim was dead. When I’m in Hockenheim, I’ll lay flowers at the Jim Clark memorial stone on 6.5.
