As minuscule as he appears to be, Clay Regazzoni is still the defining element in this outstanding shot by Bernard Cahier from the 1970 Italian Grand Prix.

The Ferrari driver is ending his cool-down lap after clinching his maiden Grand Prix triumph, achieved on this day 50 years ago.

The excitement, Monza's typical frenzy, Clay's popular success on the Scuderia's home-ground, there was nothing missing in this milestone moment for the Swiss driver.
