The 1969 Le Mans 24 Hours was so close that it is indelibly written in the history of this classic motor race. It was also probably the finest race Jacky Ickx has ever driven, although he himself would say that his performance in the night in 1977 was better. I was managing the Gulf-sponsored John Wyer team, with its two five-litre Ford GT40s. One of them – that driven by Jacky and Jackie Oliver – was chassis 1075, the 1968 Le Mans winner for Pedro Rodriguez/Lucien Bianchi.

Despite the news only being confirmed Oct. 30, Arrow McLaren SP’s dumping of James Hinchcliffe was a blaze of a story that rapidly spluttered out for want of fuel to feed it. Team co-owner Sam Schmidt described the decision as gut-wrenching , McLaren CEO Zak Brown said that, after “consulting with all the stakeholders”, grabbing Patricio O’Ward and Oliver Askew to replace Hinchcliffe and Marcus Ericsson had been the best decision for the team .
