In 1973 at Watkins Glen (which was Jackie’s 100th Grand Prix) Stewart’s teammate Francois Cevert was killed in a terrible accident.

Jackie Stewart decided he would never drive a racing car again.

He did TV commercials in the US and provided commentary for ABC Sports at the Indianapolis 5000.

He also appeared in a George Harrison video as Harrison’s chauffeur.

Stewart then became involved in automotive engineering.
