Motorsport Memorabilia 1969 Grand Prix commemorative cover
1969 was a very good year for Jackie Stewart who completely dominated the season in the Cosworth engined Matra MS80. Having won the first race in the MS10, he gained 5 further victories in the MS80 to win the title outright. Although Stewart only gained 2 pole positions, compared with 5 by the Lotus 49B and 4 by the Brabham BT26A, he led for almost half the total laps in the season. Jackie Ickx won 2 races in the Brabham to come runner up in the championship and Bruce McLaren was third in his M7A. The artwork portrays two Matras driven by Jackie Stewart and Jean-Pierre Beltoise leading the French Grand Prix at Clermont-Ferrand. Matra is the only French constructor to have won F1 titles.
