That’s Hans Hermann crouched down there, underneath the flipping car- the flipping car that, until just moments before this photo was taken, he was piloting. The crash, at the 1959 AVUS F1 race, was caused by failure of the brakes on Hermann’s BRM. Amazingly, he walked away from the accident with only minor bumps and bruises.
