Monza F1 GP 1978 Ronnie Peterson is finally out of his burning Gold Leaf Lotus, thanks to James Hunt. His accident happened during a first corner pile-up at the start. A chain-reaction had launched his Gold Leaf Lotus into the barriers, tearing it in half before it burst into flames. Hunt braved the flames to drag Peterson clear. It took 20 min. for medical aid to come as he lay on the track with burns and broken limbs. The Swede died the next day.
