1967 South Africa: Romantic Story

During 4 years (1962-1966), Rhodesian John Love had only raced privately at 3 GP (all in South Africa). In 1967 and for the 1st time at Kyalami´s circuit, after a superb recovery, he got the lead and victory looked almost certain. But fortune was cruel and he was forced to make an unexpected pit stop, that made him fall to 2nd. So, Pedro Rodriguez got his 1st F1 win (and last of Cooper), but Love's feat became one of the most romantic stories ever seen in F1.
