With reference to the Rosemeyer crash in the Auto-Union (August, 1990), there is a photograph taken shortly after showing the wrecked car lying on the steep grassy embankment alongside the autobahn.
It is extremely difficult to say whether or not it is upside down; all four wheels are there, but the streamline body is almost entirely stripped off. It was this that prompted Neubauer, the Mercedes-Benz Team Chief, to say that the crash was probably due to wind pressure causing the body to collapse and peel off like a banana skin. The strengthening cross wind would not only be a serious risk in itself, but here became the last straw that broke the camel’s back.
