Sunday 3rd November 1968
Graham Hill completed his second world championship with victory at the Mexican Grand Prix, narrowly pushing Jackie Stewart into second place. Hill went into the weekend with a three-point lead over Stewart and the pair were head to head for the first third of the race, Stewart even leading from the third to the seventh lap, before he fell back to seventh with engine failure. “I had a lovely time,” Hill said after his win. “The car went beautifully. I am very pleased to have won.” Denny Hulme had a lucky escape when the suspension on his McLaren broke and he piled into a wall.
